That's actually got to be worthy of some kind of distinction. If he ever becomes an Assistant Coach, his streak could live on for another 2 decades!
Based on numbers no, but you can argue on the Detroit Team that won he was the direct reason for it, because he does everything well. Also before advanced defensive statistics it was always difficult to measure the impact on a game of defensive beasts.
My gut feeling is that players like Rasheed Wallace, Stephen Jackson, Tyson Chandler, Ron Artest, even Bruce Bowen are directly responsible for quite a few wins and possibly championships just on defense alone. I would actually vote him in, but i doubt he gets it
whats the news on his injury?
in typical fashion it was "day to day" a few weeks ago, i was expecting him back at a similar time as Amare.
I hate to see Amare go, he was the center piece in the rebuilding, and always ready to do whatever will benifit the team....
i know we are always afraid of his enjuries, but when a player like Rondo go down, this gives you the feeling that nobody is safe....
i just love his work ethics, and the notion that he will do anything to help the team...... moreover, if you can imagine the team with full strengh Amare...... wow......
