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.
but they also have a top 10 offense to go along with defense. Actually the average offensive rating and defensive rating of the past champions is 5th for defense and 6th for offense so yeah keep dreaming like you dont need offense coz your team will fail in the end. The reason why defense is higher because its harder to play offense.
And LOL at howard being better than dirk. You act like dirk is just becomes better this year when this guy just consistently won 50+ wins in his career. And has been to the finals twice and if wade wasnt gifted 30+ fts, he would have 2 chips by now.
Well why dont you just look at the center position if you want proof of playing defense=injuries. Noah, bynum, perkins, oden, yao, nene, shaq, etc. are all injury prones. And there are other centers too.
