The China 3 killed the team's ability to play good team D last year. They had athletic perimeter wings but no athletic bids due to the China caper so when they drove perimeter players off the three point line they could score easily inside with no rim protection and bad rebounding.
In Lonzo's season they didn't have good perimeter D (Isaac and Bryce had no lateral quickness) and their bigs other than Ike were not overly athletic.
Not trying to give CSA a break. But you have to play zone in that situation which opened up the 3. I guess you could blame the Chine 3 situation on CSA - the buck stops with him. Anyway, we are going to see the truth this year.
