exactly...AKs stats are deceiving becasue all his blocks and steals are from secondary help. This does not make him a good defender. Artest is a much better on ball defender. He is a more capable scorer and can rebound as much or more than AK even though AK is taller. AK is much more injure prone. Artest makes like half of what AK makes so Artest anyday
