    I was unaware that Donovan was known for his defense. That's not a knock on him as much as he has had 2 years in the NBA and not learned all the little tricks of the trade. He has the potential to be a lock down defender with his athletic ability but he is not close to being there right now.

    I will give him some benefit of the doubt due to having to carry the Jazz on offense. I would not play defense as hard knowing that I have to do all the work on offense. So maybe in a setting where offense won't be an issue for the USA team, he can focus on just defense.
