There is no way Carl Landry or David Lee can cover DeMarcus Cousins in the paint. Golden State gotta get Ezeli back on the floor to stick on Cousins.
Harrison Barnes has played a lot better than I expected him too. Much more mature defensively (and rebounding wise) than I thought he'd. He is still learning how to score effectively but he does enough to keep the defense honest and not too much to hurt his team. Good player.
Ezeli is a really fine backup center. I was thinking earlier today who are the best candidates for the next high level backup turn quality starter (like Omer Asik or Marcin Gortat did) out of today's backup centers. Ezeli was the top name on my list. I really like his physical talent and mental disposition. In another year or two, if he puts the work in, Ezeli is going to be a really valuable player. Great pickup.
