    Well his defense has certainly improved from this.

    Korver is a girlie girl on defense! <insert Korver in girlie pose pic> Am I doing this right?

    In all seriousness, Korver is actually a solid defensive player in Atlanta's system. He is also a surprising good perimeter facilitator with his court vision and shooting threat. I liked his game from the Philly days, and he's been a great guy to have on my Fantasy roster this season :D

    Hear rumors that he is a defensive mentor to former jazz player.

    He certainly salvaged my fantasy season from the crapper when Dwyane Wade became a part-time employee of the Heat last year.

    Certainly deserves more recognition. He can stroke it and finds ways to be more than just a spot-up guy despite his physical limits.

    While everyone is focused on Wade and Lebron as the guys using PEDs, I think it's the guys having career years at 33 who might be the real culprits. Just a thought.

    PEDs aren't really about muscle mass in most professional sports.

    The only reason I clicked on this thread was to see someone post this picture.

    So which is the drug that gives you 57% three-point shooting, exactly?

    Korver for me and it ain't even close.

    Parsons is the jack of all trades and master of none. He is not elite in any one category.

    At least with Korver, he is an elite shooter, one of the very best in the game.

    The D played by Parsons and Korver is pretty much equal.

    To be completely serious, one of the most important things in shooting is having fresh arms and legs, which PEDs would help you with..

    There are multiple fallacies at work here by the good people of the internet.

    One seems to be that if Turner is bad at defense, Korver isn't. That doesn't hold water.

    Another is that one screenshot is representative of someone's defense - whether it's Korver, Turner, or Harden. Doesn't work either.
