2. Defense
     • Contest all shots
     • Pressure the ball with help behind you
     • Pressure everything from the NBA 3 point line in
     • Make them shoot, pass, or dribble; don't let them stand with the ball
     • Force offense where you want them and then contain them there
     • Need to make stops when the game is on the line
     • Defend through all of practice, make the defense challenge the offense
     • Have a thought of the day
     • Have an emphasis of the day (ex. Rebounding)
