So that doesn't mean People blow by Tmac that often.
If Yao didn't have good defenders in front of him, players like Tmac, Battier, and C. Hayes, he wouldn't be able to stay in the game defensively, becuase he would always be in foul trouble.......Tmac is still a better defender, he's also a better distributor.
