"I'm not sure the Bruins will be ready for their close up come March, but by the start of next season they should be ranked in the preseason top five."
A good man-to-man defense is like a zone, where you've got pressure on the ball, you're guarding the man with the ball--one pass away, you're in man-to-man, but the other guys are in a zone. The thing I don't like about the zones is you're going to give up an open shot. I don't like to have shots that are uncontested from a defensive standpoint. In zone, you're going to end up giving up open shots. Moving the 3-point line back, you're going to see more zone because of it. The purpose supposedly was to open the game up. I'm skeptical of whether that will occur. I don't think a zone is as fun to watch from a spectator standpoint.
