Default Re: Why are there athletic players who can't play D, but unathletic players who can?

Defense isn't about athleticism. It's about dedication, effort, and predicting what your opponent will do. The problem with many athletic players is they are very easy to fake out. They easily jump in the air expecting to block a shot or they lose their balance moving side to side.
