KGs defense >>> Tysons defense
besides a few games this year where he didn't show up tyson is still the reining defensive player of the year and does much more
who blocks more shots - tyson
who gets more rebounds - tyson
who is he better post defender - tyson
garnett is probably the better help defender but that about it.
Look at the team defenses. Garnett anchors the Celtics and Tyson anchors the Knicks. Key difference? KG's Celtics are 7th in Points Allowed and Tyson's Knicks are 12th. The Celtics are more like a top 5 defense but they're last in the league in rebounds.
The Celtics are a top 3 defense statistically when KG's on the floor, the only reason why their rank is so low for their standards is because the defense, especially in the interior, falls apart when he goes to the bench.
Personally, even as a Celtics fan, I don't think KG should be starting. Joakim Noah should've been starting at center for the East.
