Eddie actually was a pretty good NBA defender, though not great. He wasn't big enough to be an elite defender, but he was very quick, and he was a terrific ball hawk...Among players 6-2 or shorter (Eddie is 6-1), Eddie is 5th in career blocks per minute. That's 5th most in blocks per minute since the league began tracking blocked shots 30+ years ago. In 78-79, he led 6-2 and under players in blocks per minute. He's #1 in career steals per minute among players 6-2 or shorter. Defensively, he was more than adequate -- his problem was on the offensive end.
