Ok, so we have all been raving about Chandler's defense lately and we've seen a lot of Battier comparisons, which got me thinking of all those great games/ playoff series where Kobe and Shane would go at it. Shane would never "shut him down" but, he made life harder on him out there and you could see the frustration build up.
So, KD is the premier scorer in the NBA right now (as was Kobe back in the day.) And I think that Parsons has shown himself to be (at least have the potential to be) a premier defender in this league.
They are both still very young.(both 23) So I ask you, do you see this as a match up to watch for years into the future?
Will KD vs. Parsons one day be a Kobe vs Battier type matchup?
Absolutely, both are great at their side of the floor. (35 votes)
