Luc Richard gets credit as an Elite NBA Defender

Bumped. As T pointed out on the comments LRMAM's "surprisingly developed knowledge" re. NBA defense is not all that surprising given how he had 2 years to learn under best defensive coach in college hoops. Wonder if that's a factor Jrue Holiday and his advisers will consider. I am not counting on it but I guess one always has to wonder. GO BRUINS. -N

Saw this little piece on espn about how Luc is ranked, by ESPN's NBA columnist John Hollinger, as the third best defensive Power Forward in the NBA this year, runner up only to Garnett and Marcus Camby!  Great to see our Bruins getting love in the NBA, and hopefully this will help Howland's recruiting for years to come!

ESPN's John Hollinger: Defensive Player Rankings

Third team: Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Bucks (-4.51)
It's rare for a rookie to crack this list, much less move into the upper tier of the league's frontcourt defenders, but Mbah a Moute was that good. The 6-9 forward from UCLA guarded 2s, 3s and 4s, and with his quickness, long arms and surprisingly developed knowledge, he proved adept no matter the assignment.

An unheralded second-round pick, he's likely to be a regular on this team for years to come.
