People saw the same thing with Shane Battier and Bruce Bowen all of those years. Neither had the speed to keep up with players at one point, but their defensive IQ's were so high, they knew how to shake up an opposing team's strategy. They knew where to lead particular scorers (baseline, paint, out of recognized hot spots) and how to do it without fouling.
Just ecause Bowen or Battier get beat a few times...does that mean they are playing bad defense?
- and they do half the work Kobe does.
Will routinely neg you until I retire from ISH.
It's getting old Alphawolf, when are you gonna stop your mindless praise of Kobe, and start listening to fans who A. Know more about basketball than you and B. Are not Laker/Kobe fans and still know more about basketball than you.
