I have Bolded the mafor differences and the only thing statistically better that Kapono did was shoot threes and scored at a higher rate(after the allstar break Jamarios percentages increased dramatically 52%FG 34% 3FG% ).

Moons rebounding, steals, blocks, turnover rate and fouls committed were alot better than Kapono.


I agree that Kaps is not as big a liability on the defensive end as people think and his deficiencies can be masked, but to say his shortcoming on defense is less than the shortcoming of Moon on offense is false.
