Shaq on Duncan:SA won because of TD, a guy I could never break.I could talk trash to Ewing, get in D-Rob's face, get a rise out of Mourning,but when I went at Tim he’d look at me like he was bored and say:“Hey,Shaq, watch this shot right off the glass.”

That's a pretty far fall from grace for the next Pippen.

Synergy employs people who watch the games and catalogue every single possession. Subscribers to its service have access to the data and videos showing these possessions. It's not a boxscore-based stat.

yeah i know that but its still based on stats, theres too much that goes into defense based on teammates etc..i mean tony parker isnt a good defender but that spurs D makes him look good. Jrue Holiday is a good defender but other PGs have big nights against the sixers because he has no defensive bigmen behind him.

That, and I'm pretty sure Synergy doesn't account much for help defense.

I see I have been beaten to the "Where's Rose" joke. I bid you all adieu.

No Dunleavy? this is a sham.

He just got done giving up 18 points to D Wade in 5 minutes.

Idk I usually trust synergy sports stats but Nic Batum being there should raise a few eyebrows. Even if you think he's overrated to say he's one of the top 5 worst defenders in the league is pretty far fetched.
