No, not by default. The purpose of the game is to score more than the other team, but, as we have learned the past few years, you cannot simply outscore. Defense is the other half of the game.aussiewill said:I think by default, Marquis will be better, as the purpose of the game is to score points that. These offensive superstarsget the media's attention, rather than good hustling defenders. Take for example the difference between Vince Carter and Ben Wallace, Vince certainly would be called better, but only because he has far superior offensive abilities in comparison to Be's far superior defensive abilities.
Well, I guess we'll just agree to disagree. Daniels has the advantage on offense, but he still has a respectable defensive game, and vice versa with Howard. I'd just rather take the guy who's the defensive specialist who can still score.aussiewill said:I'm not disagreeing with you that JHo is currently better, I actually said that in my second sentence, but the poll is who will be better and IMO Marquis will be. I can see him being a poor mans AI in the future and if he has half the talent of AI he will be a great starting 2. Marquis averages 1.5 spg in 26.3min which is quite good IMO, so he can put some pressure on defenders as well, just not to the level of JHo. He has upped his rebounding productivity more as well whioch gives him more value.
For JHo he has much better stats, but he will get that while being a starter. So if this poll was made today JHo will get it, but in the future Marquis will be IMO.
