"That was my young fella," Brown bragged of Bynum. "I taught him everything he knows. ... I'm one of the better defenders in the league and we played against each other every day in practice. I told him if you can score against me, you can score on anyone."
If Bird had gotten Kwame, those that think he can't defend would be saying how good defensively he is. When one wears a Pacers uni, they suddenly become better and worth a king's ransom in a trade.
Prime example of this is Rush. You know that player many thought was worth a good player and a 1st due to his "D" alone. Then reality sets in as Rush gets traded for a seldom used journeyman big and not even a 2nd rd pick.
If you actually watched Kwame in the past year or two you'd know he isn't half bad. Definitely not #1 pick overall worthy, but he's no Solo or anything. He just gets a bad rap because he was picked by Jordan and #1.
Folks, it's a dumb comment by a player who I am confident can be labelled a bust yet who somehow has an over inflated sense of self. I don't think the OP meant that LITERALLY inanimate objects used for respite play better D than Kwame "my career is similar to something else commonly colored" Brown. I thought the comment was funny and accurately reflected what many other teams think of the value of KB.
KB has been off the lakers how long now? Does he really think all his prep work with bynum is paying off now??? And a guy who has no work ethic somehow made someone else work hard enough to be a top center in the league? I'd say the chair comparison is closer to reality.
