know what i mean?

Defense is a huge part of the game son. Look at the last ten years in the league...There isn't a single champion that isn't a great defensive team.

I don't understand your Artest point. Ben Wallace is a Kwame Brown type player, but with his dominant defense he is a future hall of famer.
