Washington Wizards point guard Bilal Coulibaly plans to begin his rookie year with a defense-first mentality.

(via Washington Wizards):

Reporter: “We see your athleticism, especially on the defensive end. Is that something that has put the league on notice that that’s what you bring to the table?”

Coulibaly: “Definitely, definitely. I’ve been saying that since a while, that’s how I’m going to come in that league. And yeah, just playing as hard as possible defensively first.”
