Btw he still doesn't play Defense
its funny he gets called out for his defense when his reach/athleticism for his size alone from just standing there is better than most people trying. I watched a lot of him his rookie year and he played real well and showed a ton of potential with effort. which is why i couldn't understand how he was getting 20 min games, and talk about trading him while being abruptly benched by Rambis, before he went on that double double spurt with regular minutes and all of a sudden he was a borderline all star.
i highly doubt his defense improved THAT much, more than his regular minute numbers over time forcing them to give him respect. especially considering it was all within the same season.
the way some retards here over focus on defensive gaffes is pretty laughable to me.
