 @OkcBaby  @ThunderStruck2412 Right. Have Thabo guard LeBron AND Wade in spot duty. He's a better defender than Battier. Right now, KD pretty much didn't guard LeBron the whole fourth quarter of game 3 and all but a few minutes of game four. He needs to put in at least 30 minutes of work.

 @ThunderStruck2412  @OkcBaby He doesn't avoid him for all but seven minutes. I'm not attacking him. I'm on your side. He isn't the best defender, but he's the best equipped to defend LeBron. I've got the numbers in a chart if you click the link.

 @OkcBaby I don't like what it says when the best player is avoiding defending the other best player at the same position. He has to do it. You can't play not to lose.

 @OkcBaby Thabo is not stronger than KD. No chance. Harden maybe, but he's much shorter

 @OkcBaby Thabo isn't strong enough to guard LeBron http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9JLI7UI16Q&list=UUbb1NPUKnZm88X9TcfgUUpA&index=1&feature=plcp

 

Thunder are better when KD guards LeBron than when anyone else does in terms of plus minus.

 

I liked what Westbrook did on Wade. Why not use Thabo as a free safety like Miami does with Wade?

1. Start Collison, his +/- against Haslem is horrible, but it's amazing against Bosh. Perk's +/- is great against Haslem

2. Kevin Durant should demand to guard LeBron. He didn't get in foul trouble guarding him in the half-court

3. Thabo should defend the point guards. He's much better at helping off of people and disrupting passing lanes than anyone else on the team. Can still guard Wade or James in spot duty.
