Pressure can burst pipes, but pressure also makes diamonds.
RIP Tim Allen August 6th, 2012. Forever in my heart.
he makes the defensive team the last few years purely on reputation... and dat der fg% eek.... he's definitely declined though i'll admit he's still a good player... should just defer to bynum/gasol more...esp with the nash-gasol pick n roll srs
If you think Kobe is anywhere near Durant at this stage you're high as fuck, as well as thinking Kobe was DESERVING of the all defensive team. He's a good defensive player AT TIMES. Wing players who play better defense than him, in no order:
Tony Allen, Ronnie Brewer, Aaron Afflalo, Iman Shumpert, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Rudy Gay, Shane Battier, Courtney Lee, Avery Bradley, Andre Iguodala, Thabo Sefalosha. Those are all better SG/SF defenders (maybe not Bradley, because he's smaller) than Kobe, yet Kobe managed to make the all defensive 1st team.
And Kobe being near Durant in PPG doesn't mean he's on the same level AT ALL
Kobe shot 43.0% from the field, and 30.3% from three.
Durant shot 49.6% from the field, and 38.7% from three.
Just think about how many less shots that is, and he got more points.
