KGs defense >>> Tysons defense


how so?

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.

i disagree with the first part, agree with the 2nd...KG is the much better player over his career. But at this point in there careers the only thing KG does better is shoot the basketball. Tyson is better at just about everything else

How is Garnett better than Noah, Lopez or Chandler?


Any Knick fan who thinks Garnett is better than those aren't a Knick fan anymore.

As we see, some Knick fans can't stop themselves from fellating KG despite the Celtics unimpressive record. They're getting what they want.

Who cares. I want EVERY Knick to miss this FARCE called an All-Star game. A rodeo clown competition is more fierce.

Let's rest up and be ready for the second half.

KG>>Tyson...and I love Tyson.

Not by a whole lot but KG gives you a lot of possibilities on offense that Tyson simply doesn't. Rebounding is the only area where Tyson clearly beats KG...other than that KG is really better at every aspect of the game.

KG is averaging a whopping 2 points higher while Tyson is averaging 4.5 offensive rebounds a game.

Chandler's offensive impact > Garnett's

People will always underrate Chandler's game on the offensive end but he's arguably the best rolling big in the league and gives us crucial extra possessions. His tap outs have literally lead to game winning shots!

The elimination of the center position hurt Tyson. KG is still the better player.

West has Paul, Kobe, Durant, Dwight, Blake.



I don't usually do that "fixed" bs, but...fixed.

Garnett gives you very similar defense/help defense/shotblocking+ he can stretch out the defense, opening up the floor for others. He can also post up and command double teams....Tyson might be better at finishing around the rim now but Kg's positives outweigh Tyson's overall. Like I said, the gap isn't huge by any means but I believe Garnett is still ahead of Tyson, which isn't bad since both players are huge for their teams.

before I begin to criticize this statement would you care to back up that ridiculous statement with some facts? or statistics? instead of making a subjective comment like that

Record - Knicks much better than the celtics (edge tyson)
Scoring - KG is averaging 2 pts more than tyson while taking 5 more shots a game (tyson is shooting 67% while KG is shooting 51%)
Rebounding - Tyson killing KG (11 rebounds a game to 7 rebounds per game)
Defense - Tyson averging more blocks per game

Point out one area which KG is outplaying Tyson this year?

I don't mind a debate about a knicks player not being worthy of something but please have some relavent stats to back up your claim.

Tyson has had his clunkers this year but he is still the best center in the east. KG has had many more clunkers than TC this year.

fair pont, im not arguing whether or not Chandler deserved it over KG...it is a fan vote after all.

I'm arguing the ridiculous claim that KG is a better player than Tyson at this point in there careers.

I misspoke. KG is the better player for his career. And his offensive skill set is better than Tyson. But Tyson has outplayed KG by far this year. And the Knicks are winning.

If the coaches voted KG wouldnt start. Im arguing for Tyson. Its s crime he is not starting.

Starting lineup of Heat/Celtics/Knick. This should be interesting.
