Defensively he is far superior to what Jordan was.
If you actually believe this statement, then you know nothing about basketball.
If he continues to play the kind of defense he has played in the playoffs this year, then he will be considered a better defender. Many ppl (including the post-game crew of ESPN) called his defensive performance equivalent to Scottie Pippen.
Everybody knows Pippen >>> Jordan, defensively.
Let's actually wait and see if he can even guard Dirk successfully. I have doubts.
If it was Michael Jordan, not only would he demand to guard Dirk, but he would do it extremely successfully with everything on the line.
Ok...when did Michael Jordan guard a PF successfully? Michael could guard 1-3, but never a 4.
