The team has a good opportunity to be be a defensive nightmare for teams. Holiday is one of the leagues most underraated defenders and Zion could morph into a really good defender as he matures and grows in age. This is important because Van Gundy led an Orlando Magic team to the NBa Finals by being one of the best defesnive teams in the league.
