Tiger Fight, October 7th. In the finals that ended today, the Lakers defeated the Heat 102-96 and led by 3-1. After the game, Lakers forward LeBron James was interviewed.
Talking about the ability of teammate Anthony Davis to switch defenses, James said: "That's why he is DPOY (Defense Player of the Year). We say that all year. Because he has the ability to switch defenses from the first position. The fifth position, able to accept the challenge of anyone on the defensive field, can not only defend to the outside, but also constantly guard the penalty area. It is difficult for the defender to score when he breaks through. X, you can see the arc of Hiro’s throwing How high is it? The goal was scored, but he (facing Davis) can only throw that ball towards the sky, right? This guy can do everything on the defensive end. As I said, defending the ball-holder, defending In the low post, the defensive footsteps can keep up with the guards, can interfere with shooting, and can play with big men, so I don’t have to go into details."
