Over in the Nuggets forum I'm having a little debate with DES, who apparently is a Clippers fan, about who is better, Camby or K-Mart.

I just got done making my case that K-Mart is better.

In this post (http://www.prosportsdaily.com/forums/showthread.php?p=6266379#post6266379), and before that, in this post as well (http://www.prosportsdaily.com/forums/showthread.php?p=6252912#post6252912) (starting from "Secondly, ...").


But let's put this to the masses. I think my take is pretty solid, but maybe you'll disagree. So who do you think is better, Camby or K-Mart?

K-Mart used to be better before some of his offensive game & athleticism was sapped from those two microfracture surgeries.

Camby is the better overall player, but K-Mart is better offensively.

I see it as exactly the opposite. Camby is better at what he specializes in - blocking and rebounding, and passing as a big man.

K is the better overall player, who can defend, bring a solid enough offensive game, grab boards, get a steal here a block there - and who definitely plays with more intensity and passion.

DenButsu you sure now how to prove yoru point. And I also agree K-Mart is better overall and Camby is a defensive specialist.

Both are on the downhill of their respective careers, but I'd go with K-Mart on this one. He has a lot more to offer.

Kenyon. Not K-Mart.


Kevin Martin is K Mart now.

Wrong.

K-Mart was Kenyon was K-Mart when Kevvie was still in JHS, so that youngster can find his own damn nickname instead of trying to steal the established nickname from the more established player.

Yes, Camby can block shots, but I never really thought of him as a good post defender. Pau Gasol was having his way against the Nuggets.

He was, and part of the reason for that was not only that Camby couldn't defend him, but that the guy who could have defended him better (K-Mart) was out on the perimeter guarding Kobe. Without K-Mart to stand beside Camby and mask his on-the-ball defensive weakness, it got badly, badly exposed.
