Re: Has T Mac surpassed Kobe defensively?
Yeah, that's an unfair way to look at things. Good defensive players play on good defensive teams. Period. You think someone like Bowen would get any recognizion on a team like the current Lakers with no shotblocking, post defense and pg defense or any of that? No, it doesn't work that way.
Kobe had an advantage earlier in his career and he was a better defender.
T Mac has an advantage now and he's a better defender.
That's the only fair way to look at things IMO.
So yeah, T Mac is a better defender right now.
