paul gets steals...there's a difference.
baron will shut you down, if/when he wants/needs to. paul doesn't have the ability to shut anybody down. he'll get abused if an opposing team has a PG that can post - like us - and chooses to focus on attacking CP.
as far as BD not playing full bore defense 100% of the time, ya, that's been well chronicled in this forum. the man already puts the offense on his shoulders, as far as kick-starting it...we can't expect that kinda effort on defense too 100% of the time...
