I'm not disputing that. He was bar none the MVP of that game and noticeably stepped up his defense. I'm just intrigued by how much he still misses on the defensive end and how much the team (and by extension, Thibs) covers up most of his deficiencies from game-to-game.
I wish there was a breakdown of the whole game because I'd watch the crap out of it and it'd be nice to see each defensive play in context, but it's not 'hate'. That's such an overused word. They went on to plug his great play in the pick-and-pop game and how it more than made up for anything on the defensive end (which was above his norm).
