    I have not seen Cuttino playing hard defense, nor I ever will. (From my perspective) He is too worry to keep his stats up (There is more in defense than steals!!!!) [​IMG]

    I seem to remember Mike Murphy referring to Mobley as a "spectacular defender" last year. Where did that come from?

    End of 1st quarter: "They're playing so well!"
    2nd: "What a great game!"
    3rd: "Theres no way they can lose now!"
    4th: "What the ******* **** happened?!!"

    Cat does play defense some of the time...particularly while trapping. I've seen him help create TO's

    Unfortunately, It doesn't happen with enough regularity to really brag about.

    I just wish he would quit jacking up all those bricks at the end of games. Pass that sucker Cat!!!!

    I haven't seen much of anyone on this team play great defense. I guess that is why we are near last place.

    Mobley is a very good defender. He is not a heralded defensive player, but is very capable.

    Everyone gets beat from time to time on a one on one basis.....that is the beauty of the NBA, no zones (well, not really anyway). Cat certainly plays better D than Steve at this stage.

    There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
