First let me say this loud and clear. Duncan is better than J.O. Duncan is better than J.O. No dispute there.

But I believe some of you need to re-consider your criticism of J.O. Yes he struggled in the Pistons series, but now we see TD struggling also. So maybe the Pistons post defense is really, really good. The combo of Ben and Sheed and even McDyess is really tough on post players.

With Sheed defending one-on-one and Ben coming over to help Duncan has been no where near what he normally is. And when TD gets used to Sheed, they move Ben on him and give him a different look.

My only point is when criticizing J.O for his performance against the Pistons you have to consider the great defense.
