I'm not denying Wall's prowess on the defensive end, or his abilities to time those rebounds. I'll be honest, and my opinion may go against the grain and rub some the wrong way, but I don't necessarily focus on or value defense from my point...I know that sounds terrible, but in today's NBA, NOBODY is locking down a Derrick Rose or a Westbrook or even the lesser athletic yet smarter points of the league like a Tony Parker on a nightly basis. I want a competent and capable defender who not only brings his team together on offense, but has the BBIQ to be a team defender and funnel the primary ball handler to his bigs.
BBIQ is the #1 thing I value in accessing a player. And Kyrie is developing into one of my favorite players to watch in the game.
