Offensively? Absolutely. He's dynamic. Defensively? Well, that's why he's not a top 10-20 player in the NBA right now. But also, it's only been 2 people "slandering" Booker. Otherwise, the universal link has been people saying that Booker is really, really, really good, but KAT is just better and has more trade value. That's not at all slander, unless you demand that everyone name Booker as a top 5-10 player in the NBA RIGHT NOW, and that's just not reality.
It's like comparing Clyde Drexler and Michael Jordan in their primes. Drexler was a damned good player, a Hall of Famer, 5 time All NBA player and 10 time All Star. He just also didn't have as much on court or trade value as Michael Jordan. Is that slander on Drexler? NO! Just calling it as it was.
Could the situation change in the future? Absolutely! But at this point, it's just reality.
