Where as if you look his numbers up on nba.com and basketball reference which i was told by a few people were credible sources to get about as close as you can get to official numbers from. He is an actual minor positive on defense and has a small positive on defensive win share. Im not saying he is some great defender or even good lol but from what i can tell on there he is not a negative at this point either. Is it just the cool thing to do by people who don't watch him to blast on him and say he is straight garbage at it without even looking to see how he is really doing according to the nba?
Just like how they hold his offensive struggles in Oct/Nov of last year, they are doing the same with his defense from last year.
Just like Reddish's 1-18 from 3 in his first 5 NBA games is all anyone remembers.
Par the course who only boxscore watch.
Thats what i figured as well but it's sad when you see people who don't want to learn and improve their nba knowledge by checking things out and doing some research. Some people are just hardheaded and set in their ways of being trollish i guess.
There is no point in arguing with them in the general board. They are going to believe what they are going to believe.
Like was said, last year they attacked his ability so shoot. Claimed he was a bust.
Now they have to move on to something else because he is killing that. Now it is that he is weak and unathletic. Worst defender in the history of the nba. Shouldn't be an all-star because his team is bad.just continuing the talking points.
