But ill take the harder part. Defense is easier but the chances of injuries are higher on defensive teams than offensive teams.
Maybe for you howard is better than dirk. But the ring speak for itself. Its easier to be like howard than to be like dirk. Its just that nobody wants to play howard style or play defense. Players dont want to get injured banging against opposing players. Im sure howard would rather play like dirk.
well pfs are also tall yet they are less injury prones esp those offensive pfs who never cared about defense like dirk, amare, bosh.
You need both, correct, but only one feeds the other...good defense leads to easy buckets...good offense does not lead to good defense.
defense is NOT easier than offense
Howard IS better than Dirk pretty much everyone but you knows this.
Amare and Bosh are rather injury prone wtf are you talking about?
Steve Nash's back is always aching and he doesn't play a lick of d.
