Re: Has T Mac surpassed Kobe defensively?
I had been hearing people talking about McGrady's defense as of late so I decided to pay extra close attention to his individual defense in last night's Rockets/Clippers game. As people said McGrady is really digging in and playing straight up, tough defense. Every time his guy would look to score McGrady would body him up and leave him no breathing room; nearly every time his opponent would pass the ball or force up a contested fade-away that would cling off the rim. Judging from the games i've seen this year McGrady is currently one of the best perimeter defenders in the game.
