Default Re: Raja Bell or Bruce Bowen

I take bowen. He can shoot and imo the best defenesive player in the nba. Pop does not pick a random play for the 3 spot on a champion team. He is better then Parker and Manu when it comes to overall skills. You might hate on me, but I really rank Bowen high. Manu and Parker is player you can get overall in the nba, but Bowen is one hell of special player. His D might be dirty, but so is many girls. We dont hate on the girls becaus they are dirty, but becaus we are not getting any of it (yes drunk)

Eh, neither are going to be doing much on offense anyways. Sure Bell is better at that end, but it's not by a wide enough margin to make a difference. No one is going to either of these guys for an isolation. They're spot up shooters, that's it.

Give me Bowen. Both can shoot the ball, but Bowen's the better defender, and more likely to piss an opponent off and take them right out of their game. One of those guys who opponents hate and teammates love.

There's one thing about Bowen. He can guard more players than Bell can. Bell can only guard SGs as far as I know. I've seen Bowen give AI fits, not for whole games, but for key posessions. He can guard any swing in the game. I woudn't trust Raja Bell with Paul Pierce. Pierce's just too big.

Raja's got a nice offensive advantage but neither player is an impact player. Raja's average and Bowen's nonexistent. Either way it's nothing to write home about. This is tough. If I had to pick one for my imaginary team it'd be Bell, though, cause he's one of my favorites. And Bowen one of my least favorites. Can't say for certain though that if you had one for a season Bell would help you more than Bowen would. That's tough.

I have not watched Bowen on Pierce, and I did not not watch the Kings vs. spurs series last years playoff, but after what I understand Bowen will and always has been killed when you get to close to the paint

He is the envy of a lot of teams.

But seriously, Bowen, Bell, and Battier are totally impact players. They do a very important job. By slowing down the opponents top small scoring option and then by stretching the defense with long range shooting, I say they impact the game a lot.

Raja Bell is to busy trying to soak up the glare of the lime light Kobe let him have. I'll take Bowen who actually is the best defensive players on a championship team. I don't like his dirty play, but the best players are dirty so get over it. Jordan and Bird were dirty players too, and now days so is Kobe.

Raja Bell is the better player, but the Spurs wouldn't trade Bowen for him.

I'm not so sure about that. Ginobolli has one of the most complete games in the league and also has an extremely high understanding of the game. He gets it done on both ends of the floor and is also excellent at setting up his team mates. I'd take him on any of my teams before any other player on the Spurs not named Tim.

I'd rather have Bruce...he can guard the SF position better than Raja can...Raja is better than Bruce on the offensive end, but with a team like the Suns, they dont need anymore offense...I'd stick with Bruce..."offense wins games, defense wins championships"
