If you're a big who can score decently(/not elite) but cant defend the rim worth squat (Cousins, Al Jefferson, Z-Bo), can a team truly justify your stature as a franchise guy? I feel like its easier to find sources of scoring from every other position, but defensive dominance MUST come from your bigs. Just look at whats happened to the once proud Memphis defense without Gasol. Look at how awful Sacramento has remained despite Cousins improvements.
You tell me whats a better setup, a high scoring PG with a rim protecting big. Or a high scoring Center with a great defensive PG? Prolly not gonna get much value from that defensive PG.
This might come off as common sense to some of you but the question Im trying to raise is this, do defensive anchors with limited offense have more value than go-to guys who just suck at defense?
