Sticking to defensive principles is a big difference from the Wizards of the past. Haywood and his teammates said one of their problems under Eddie Jordan was inconsistent strategy. Jordan had his defense but brought in assistant Randy Ayers to teach a new scheme, only to switch back when the team was struggling. Later, the players recalled, they returned to Ayers' system.

Mike Jones, Washington Times. Consider the source (Haywood never hesitates to bash Eddie Jordan), but it kind of confirms one of my biggest problems with Jordan, which is that he confused the team with all his different zone traps and schemes. Having one set philosophy seems to be the key to good defense, not having several ones to "confuse" the defense.
