    In response to Fierce34's comment:


    There's more than one way to skin a cat.

    Dirk Nowitzki is one of the weakest defenders in NBA history. But he still won a championship, right?


    KG's defense will surely be missed. 

    However, how Brad Stevens makes his players play defense is more important.


    A team with an above average defense will always win over defense oriented teams that are not great offensive teams.

    Defense can only do so much. 

    Just like in 2010 and 2012 when the Celts led the Lakers in the 4th in Game 7 of the 2010 Finals and when the score was tied heading into the 4th in Game 7 of the east finals against the Heat in 2012.

    Remember, basketball is a shooting game. The objective is put the ball in the basket, whether from long range or point blank range. 

    Better offense always trumps great defenses.




    Defense and offense are inherently equally important.  They're two sides of the same coin.

    it is proper coaching to emphasize defense because players naturally gravitate toward offense.

    Offense tends to come and go, players have good games and bad games, but defense can be brought every night. For that reason, defense is usually more dependable.

    The only variable here is NBA management. ref teams can call a game closely or loosely. In addition, games may be called tigher in the first half and looser in the second half. The third is more of a constant. Lebron can go for several games without fouling, and others never foul out.

    With these points in mind, a well balanced team with solid defense should have the advantage, but one never knows, one has to wonder how much influence NBA management has in deciding champions.

    Good luck KG, it has been a pleasure watching you.
