Heh, in NO way should "defensive stud" and Fabio be used in the same sentence unless you're trying to show what it isn't!
He did become VERY good at getting in his guy's grill and kept the pass from getting to him; I remember some his opponents getting downright pissed at him a couple of times. The downside is of course Fabio's lateral foot speed (or lack of)...if his opponent gets the ball and drives then Fabio's lost.
And I think you misunderstood me (or was referring to someone else) so far as Hollins and his perimeter defense. I'm QUESTIONING it.
Until we actually see him play it's damn hard trying to debate this whole scenario. All I have is last year, which should by itself worry all of us. But like I've been saying all along with all the fringe players like Hollins and Touche'...Coach V has been with them all summer, so he should have latitude in his decisions.
