He was able to get inside rather easily against Boston. It was hardly at all perimeter play.
I meant the combined presence of MWP and Dwight. Nonetheless, LOL @ you for acting as if Metta is some pushover. He gets pushed over by no one.
I've seen him guard plenty of players that are faster than him. He gets owned some games, but is usually consistent with good defense. I'm not even arguing about this as I watch every Lakers' game and I see him play, the times he gets beat is usually when he provides help for other players rather than him just letting players score on him in one on one situations.
My point was if you guys try to force LeBron to be a perimeter player, he's still capable of taking over the game.
I never said he was incapable of guarding guys that are faster than him, but he struggles against them. Not only is LeBron faster than Ron, but he's stronger than him, he's smarter than him and overall in a 7-game series I don't think Ron will be able to slow down LeBron.
