Re: Has T Mac surpassed Kobe defensively?
Kobe was voted 5 or 6 times.
Right now he plays very little defense but to question his defense throughout his career is pretty dumb IMO.
Yes, it's true that he sometimes had F the defense attitude against no name players but for the most part, his defense was pretty good but then again, he played with 3 other good to great defenders and one defensive liability.
He also had some god defensive games with this current squad.
If we're talking about his career, he's definitely been an above average defender so far? Great, definitely not. Good? Probably, yeah..
You can argue 1 of his selections, maybe 2...but 6?
But hey, this is coming from a guy who considers Kobe a role player.
