Talk on Defense

Great post players talk on defense and move their feet to support the defensive perimeter. They call out screens well before they are set and adjustments when the angle or location of a screen changes. They also keep light on their feet and active to show and release, or trap on tough perimeter pick and roll screens. They rarely come late to support the pick and roll screen hanging their perimeter defenders out to dry.

Understand. I try my best to describe, it's difficult sometimes on a website to fully explain. I might eventually have a video coming out, will explain everything visually.
