Fratello Worried about Grizzlies' Defense

There's an interesting article in the Commercial Appeal about the Grizzlies' defense. It describes the Grizzlies' style of defense last season which depended on the savy of Battier, Jackson and Wright, all of whom have moved on, as well as a solid team effort.

This year, while there's increased athleticism, the team isn't in sync as it was last year. Similarly, there are questions about whether the young guys will listen to Fratello in the last year of his contract.

The Grizz will have Swift's shot blocking which it didn't have from anyone last year, which will help with it's interior defense.
