I know we're missing Jrue, but how do they look so far? Are we improved from last year? Is the defense still the same?

Diallo and Hield are great draft acquisitions. We also picked up a few key veterans.

If Hield can improve his penetration to the basket, he'll be BEASTING this season. Many have not heard about Diallo, but his video (below) is impressive!

To answer your question about the defense, with Diallo and Davis in the paint, opponents' points INSIDE will be hard to come by (in the half court game). Yes, Anderson and Gordon were key losses, but overall (with "The Brow" now healthy)... the Pels appear to be much improved.
