agreed, it's sort of like the "Bowen Factor"
Bruce was always a good defender during his run here, but on offense the best player on the other team would usually "hide out" on defense by guarding him on a switch (Kobe, Nash, etc.)
Parker's defense is underrated, but his offense is also a very good defense like you've said
