example:ron artest without his defense is a ricky davis type player..... BUT HE'S GREAT ON D SO LETS MAKE HIM A NEAR-ALLSTAR!
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.
