Newly signed Pistons center Kwame Brown believes that he is one of the most underrated defenders in the NBA today, according to MLive.com.

"I think I'm one of the most under-rated defenders in the league," he said while speaking to the press as a member of the Pistons for the first time on Tuesday.

"I've been through it all," he said about being traded numerous times during his short career. "This is the life of a professional athlete."

A very underrated defender.

Kwame > Pau on D

If pau wasn't long he would be one of the worst defenders.

Earlier, I played 2K8 with the default rosters to see if I can unlock those VS achievements, Kwame Brown came in, and miss putbacks and layups....I quit the game thereafter. :rock:

I'm sorry but pau>>>>>>>>kwame defensively. At least pau has some IQ and it doesn't matter if he wasn't long, the fact is that he's long which helps him a lot and he's a better defender any day over cake man.

See, even 2K8 acknowledges that Kwame is crap...

Kwame is a MUCH better defender than Pau. Kwame has absolutely shut down the elite bigs in the league on multiple occasion. I remember one game a couple years ago against Minnesota, he basically cancelled out KG. I'll try and find the specific stats but KG had something like 17pts, 14reb on HORRIBLE percentages and Kwame had like 11pts and 12 rebs.

I also will never forget this game, against Detroit. Brian Cook was starting, and Sheed had 14pts on 6-6 shooting with 3 rebounds in the first 5 or 6 minutes. Kwame came into the game and guarded Sheed the remainder of the game. Sheed went something like 1-12 and finished the game with 19pts and 6 rebounds.

Kwame may not possess any great basketball skills but he has the athleticism to move his feet, and the strength to not back down.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

um, no your not? People will start thinking your a good defender once you prove to be one. Not just block one shot.

He's proven that he's a solid defender. He can hold his own with some of the bigger centers in the league.
