Ross is a really good defender. Kobe isn't the best example because Kobe dropped 40 points on the Clippers in the 2nd half alone of a game earlier this year, but Ross does well against the Iverson and Arenas type players. He isn't really the best for matching up with the bigger guards like Kobe, Pierce and so on.

yeah i like Q.Ross

he brings hard D but not much else, he was one of the players i would always love to have on my team tho, nothing but hustle & hard D, lets the game come to him, and his shot isn't the worst.

Say what??? I compare him more to the likes of a Trenton Hassell with more speed... He plays good D... He shut down Bibby when we played the Clips on Friday after he dropped like 25 in the first three quarters...

Ross basically shut Kobe down... he got most of his points against Cuttino Mobley.

I was impressed by Ross' defense in the first quarter...but then Kobe went and dropped 38 on the Clippers on 50+% shooting. ;) :cool:

About 30 of those points are probably not on Ross. Q is a great defender and I think he should be considered for one of the defensive teams but he doesnt score enough to get recognition. I love this guy on the Clippers but he needs to start dunking more he can really get up but seems afraid of the contact when he drives.

Considering Q rarely gets any calls, can't really blame him for not driving. Refs just show him no respect.

This is exactly the reason he should go hard, he can get up and dunk on people then they will give him more calls in my opinon. But he has gotten better since the begining of last season where he went to the basket very very weak and would never score near the rim.

Kobe scored 38 points on over 50% shooting. If Mobley was getting lit up like that and Ross was shutting him down, you'd think Dunleavy would have switched Ross back onto Kobe.
You've gotta remember though, Ross is a great defender (close to the level of Bruce "Lee" Bowen), but has probably one of the worst offensive games the NBA has seen in a few years.
