Our guys are getting in his face when he messes up. That could be a huge difference in how he improves his D. That and him learning to be vocal on defense.
Really no way to truly know, what is known is he is certainly giving an effort on that side of the ball now.
But there is a difference in playing in the early parts of a rebuilding season and playing in the 2nd round or more in the playoffs.
Kanter fits what we're doing, all that matters to me.
I agree. If he didn't fit these wins don't happen. There's plenty of time for further evaluation anyway.
