I know you didn't say that Kukoc was a good defender, but I disagree: I think Odom is a good defender, especially team-wise. His interior rotations on penetration are excellent, for instance, and he has great lateral movement out on the perimeter. He's a versatile defender who can cover the 2-5 spots. Kukoc couldn't adequately guard any position -- he'd get beat off the dribble by 2/3's and posted up at will by 4/5's. There's no contest between them defensively imo. I thought this was common knowledge.
