That is just horrendous. On the one hand, at least he wasn't taking a lot of ill-advised shots, but if he isn't going to contribute offensively, he has to at least do something on defense. While Noce traditionally plays defense with a ferocious (and extremely obnoxious to other teams) energy, he is not truly a great defender. He rarely can play his man straight up. The only time he has limited success is when he annoys the player he's covering to such an extent that it takes the player out of his game. In terms of pure defense though, he is sorely lacking. So what is he bringing to the Bulls right now? Well last night it consisted of a -18 for his team. That's a long contract Pax, think you can move this guy?
