Really good piece on the importance on-court communication plays for the NBA’s top defenses. I love the KG, Chris Paul, and Dwight Howard anecdotes along with the KG video clip against the Bulls and Nets.
“Our guys, every now and then, they talk, but we have to talk more,” Richardson said. “I think [young players] don’t understand that when you communicate more, it just makes your defense that much better. But they saw that when we played against the Clippers. CP (Chris Paul) was just directing the whole thing, just talking at all times. They knew all our plays, they knew what to stop. We came in the locker room after the game, and they understood that if you talk more, it makes your job that much easier on defense.”
