Honestly Covington has the size and length to get shots off with ease against those guys, which I consider significant. Sure it's a lesser of evils situation, but now consider playing the Clips. If Klay guards Lou Will than Curry/Beal would be relegated to Kawhi/PG which would be an absolute nightmare.
Oh yes, yes it would, but I don't think the issue is size per say. It is having an average at best defender and a bad one. Size is just the least of their worries with those 3.
But you would at least agree with me that Curry or Beal (probably Curry) would take on Lou in that scenario, right? They wouldn't always have the luxury of sticking Klay against ball-handlers.
I mean I assume you want Klay on leonard who's the best scorer (and come playoff time I expect he'll have the ball in his hands on most plays) for the clippers and then yeah you're putting Curry or Beal on lou who's well going to have no problem driving past them and then you get the nightmare of PG where I would agree height is a small issue with guarding his shot (not that he can't drive past them or power through them too), but frankly the issue is the warriors just can't match up there because they need at least two good defenders to handle those 3 (CP3 would not fix the height issue but I'd feel way better with him than Beal in a defensive system). That however is going to be an issue for most of the league. Who are the lakers putting on those 3?
