He needs to learn not to gamble so much with Kobe. Laterally he's decent considering it's Kobe, north/south not so great. Pesky though, you have to admit. He might be good to put on someone like Allen at best (someone who usually chooses to shoot and can be affected more by Belli's peskiness). Help defense by GS would have been nice.

Kobe was playing with him, he probably knew that Marco would try real hard, so Kobe was playing him, but still bad match up...

This video is showing that Belinelli didn't do bad at all..

Kobe hit some ridiculous threes that nobody can defend...Belinelli picked his pocket 2/4 times and got BLOW by the 4th time because Kobe got irritated LOL..

After Kobe stopped hitting shots and got by Belinelli only twice...Not bad.

Wright will defend high caliber SG lije Kobe and Wade. That's exactly why weed need a solid back-up SF. Cause when Wright needs to play SG (about 30-40% of the time), we have no SF depth. Joey, Joey, Joey, Joey, Joey, Joey

Bellinili is still young and was stuck on a Warriors coached by Don Nelson, who's a poor coach when it comes to developing young talent.

BTW....It's KOBE! Nobody can defend him!! DUH!!

Kobe, LeBron, and Wade are a trio of unguardable players. Good team D can wear them down, but ultimately, if they want to score 30, they will score 30.

I like throwing Wright and Belinelli at most of the other SG though. I have no idea how Derozan's athleticism will translate into guarding men in the NBA...I just haven't seen enough of him.

He is putting an effort in on defense. The raps defence would be 10x times better if they actually gave a **** about D. When they don't give the effort on the court it just makes me disappointed as a fan. Good to see Belinelli in a raps uni. Starting to really like this addition for the fact Belinelli never really got the chance to prove himself. If you see his stats you will see what i'm talking about. I hope that Jay rewards players for their defensive effort, just in an attempt to keep the players on their toes.

I'm glad to see this, Marco really did put up a fight and bust his tail off trying to contain Kobe, and thats all you can really do as an individual is contain him. Like another poster said, keep in mind this is Kobe Bryant we are watching here. I hope to see more of this kind of intensity this year with Toronto for Marco. Good find Nexus
