So what you're saying is Meeks is a better defender than Artest???? Meeks can match up with Durant, Lebron, Melo, Gay, Galinari, Beasley, Pierce, etc, etc, etc. I don't think so. I'm not sure what your infatuation with Meeks is. He's a specialist in the NBA. He can shoot. That's about it. He's never been a defender. He's a spark off of a bench. He's not a starter for a championship team, especially not replacing someone at SF when he's a SG. You do realize he's only 6'4" and 210 pounds right? Not to mention he was a 2nd round pick. This guy isn't going to be a difference maker in the NBA. He'll be a role player/specialist but nothing more than that.
