I'd rather have a 7 foot shot blocker than a 7 footer who leads their team in charges taken aka "flop"

Jason Collins is, or rather was, an underappreciated defensive specialist. He didn't really help the Nets in anything else, though. However, those teams were in such short supply of quality bigs, that Collins was often their best option offensively and on the boards. The Nets usually scored more and rebounded more when Collins was on the court. Not the only defensive-minded big to be a suspect rebounder; Rasheed Wallace hasn't been much better in that respect.

For 5 seasons, the Nets were one of the best defensive teams in the league (in the top 5 in defensive efficiency from 2002 to 2006). The on court/off court defensive numbers for Collins have been consistently outstanding: from 2003 to 2007, -3.7, -6.0, -13.2, -5.6, -7.5. Almost had a block and a steal per game in his best season, too, to go along with that -13.2. And, yes, he's drawn plenty of charges. He certainly upset Shaq.

One-dimensional scorers receive plenty of appreciation, so why not some fans for the defensive specialists.

Well he can't :)
Some seasons ago he had that jumper, but not anymore...

Has anyone ever seen a highlight reel video with not a single highlight in it??

Collins is a nice guy, though :)

The fact that he was getting much more playing time over Kwame in Memphis, made me a fan.

Frank: "Can he score? No. Can he rebound? No. Can he block shots? No."

Haha, Frank argues that one of Collins' "strength" is that he doesn't have a desire to score.
