Yeah, watching him he's a little below average defensively. But I agree that statistically there seems to be the suggestion that perhaps the team around him is killing him.

I honestly don't care whether you want to classify him as sub-par, average, or elite defensively. His offense and rebounding is enough that his defense is a secondary concern so long as it isn't Bargnani level.
