See what he did in Team USA, he had a very good defensive outcome in his time there.
But it's not his role because his role is to be the #1 option on offence, so we would never know how he would do in Artests role now would we? It takes defense to play heart.
Plus whats next? If LeBron was in Prime Shaq's role to dominate the post he would average 30\15 and put up 40\20 in the finals as well?
