Ben Wallace: Defense born, not made

During his prime NBA years, Ben Wallace was a 4 time winner of the Defensive Player of the year award.  He feels as if the Piston can become a good defensive team but perhaps not a great one.

"You are born with it; you can't teach that," Wallace said. "It's tough to get to the league and not be a great defender and turn into one. You can be a great team defender. But as far as taking control of the game, it's one of those things where you are born with that intensity or with what we call that 'dog' in you."
