Default Re: Why did Coack pick Mike Miller over Durant?

Did somebody say Durant would provide interior defense?

I bet he gets backed down by 5'2" girls in da club.

Miller's been playing well these days. Give the guy some credit.

Dude has the wingspan of a 7 footer, ala Tayshun Prince who has been very solid on defense and the boards. And even though it was college, Durant was a force in the paint mainly because of his length and not his strength,

Nothing worse than a know-nothing dipshyt who thinks he's smarter than Coach K.

Explain what an interior defender is to the board.
Explain how Durant would be an interior defender in the NBA and recent international play.
Explain how Durant was not an interior defender in summer league.
Explain the difference between college players he faced vs the players he will face.
Explain Tayshaun Prince on defense to the board.

Name one of the great post players in the Big 12 Durant went up against this year? Name one.

Before you stare at your screen for 10 minutes and get automatically logged out, I'll give you Mario Boggans.

He's the only other worthy big in that conference and he isn't even close to an NBA caliber player....yet he got the better of Durant.

Didn't Durant have just as many block per game as Oden did? That kind of proves he can defend down low. He isn't blocking jumps shots all day.

You know what, you're right. Blocked shots = overall defensive impact and ability.
