Saying defense is more important than offense is like saying defensive players like ben wallace are more important than nowitzki
Defense is more important than offense point blank.
The Celtics, Bulls, Spurs, Pistons, etc...all their great teams revolved around defense.
D Howard is a better player than Dirk (That's a better comparison).
Only when Dirk had help at forward (Tyson/Marion) that played good d did he win a championship. It's not a coincidence. When the Mavs got better defensively (and their comp got old) they won.
You have no proof that more players get hurt on defense. Idk where you get that bullshit from.
