Let me put it this way, if Kobe posted up with the ball against CP3 and ended up not scoring, wouldn't we be upset since scoring in the post against smaller guards is one of Kobe's specialties? Even though CP3 is a perennial MVP candidate, an all star, one of the best players in the league, best PG in the last 3 years, amongst league leaders in steals, All Defensive team selections..knowing how great CP3 is when that kinda situation comes you want Kobe to come out on the better end of it. Thats how I feel when it comes to Ron in iso defensive situations against Lebron and Durant, its one on one, Ron hates screens he takes pride in his 1 on 1 defense in this kinda situation he thrives, he calls out players and coaches over twitter for using screens and calling them p****.
When Ron gets the situation he wants, a mano a mano play, I just wish he would force these guys to at least take harder contested shots, he cant even do that now. Its not easy for any NBA player to do that against Durant and Lebron but there is this expectation if anyone in the league can its Artest and he hasnt come thru so far in an isolation situation where his supposed ability to get stops at the right time should come into play
