    Default Kwame Brown in his own words

    http://www.thepostgame.com/blog/dish...-stars-success

    "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."

    LOL!

    You know that drill where a coach will place three chairs on the floor to teach defensive positioning? Yeah, well, sometimes that chair is a better defender than Kwame.

    I said sometimes. He CAN defends when he WANTS to. The problem is getting him to want to.

    I forgot. There are only 10 good defenders in the NBA. My bad.

    He hasn't even registered a block this year (0.6 career). What good is a center who can't block shots and can't score. He just a big body who can push guys off the post.

    I don't think he's a slouch defensively but to suggest he taught bynum everything he knows...well...

    I'm not surprised by the foolish comments. Kwame always looked like JO's fat dumb brother.

    Doesn't this still alter shots?

    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.

    Blocking shots isn't what defense is about. How often do you see a blocked shot end up in a made basket after the team on offense recovers it anyway?

    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.

    He is one of the best at defending the post in the game imo. Not good at offense but he is a good defender.

    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.
