Default Re: Has T Mac surpassed Kobe defensively?

Kobe was never the defender people loved to make him out to be during the Shaq years[also the Dynasty years], and now, since he doesn't have the Big Fella behind him, or any legitimate big man, he's getting exposed when players get past him, as they had before with the Shaq years, but they also had to face Shaq. Now, T-Mac has Yao behind him along with Deke, so if someone is to get past him, they have to face the best player in the L today at altering shots, or a damn good shot blocker. Neither Kobe's nor T-Mac's defense is 'great'.
