Arron Afflalo is an ELITE defender


Consider the recent evidence:

11/13/2009 - Kobe Bryant - 7/17, 4 turnovers, 19 points.  ZERO points in the second half.

11/17/2009 - Belinelli/Weems - 11/25, 3 turnovers, 28 points combined, +/- of -19.

11/21/2009 - John Salmons - 2/11, 1 turnover, 5 points in 28 minutes of play.

11/24/2009 - Chris Douglas-Roberts - 1/6, 3 turnovers, 5 fouls, 4 points in 30m of play.  Had averaged 27.3 in the previous 3 games

Afflalo also had 15 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and a steal and block last night in the second rout of the Nets.

Afflalo has the length and the tenacity to bother ANY player and he hustles as hard as (if not harder) than Renaldo Balkman.  He fights over every screen, bulls through every pick, constantly hangs around the offensive basket, works to create his own shot and runs the break.

What more could you ask from your starting SG?  He knows he isn't a primary scoring option and is okay with that.  His stellar defense is amazing, and really a primary reason (in my opinion) why the Nuggets have been able to look so dominant in the first part of this season.  Put him on the other team's best SG/SF and he will just lock them down.

Say it with me now: Dahntay WHO?
