Should Matisse Thybulle join him?
Fresh-faced, with his foot barely through the door, Thybulle has cemented his status as one of the NBA’s premier defensive weapons. Thybulle has played a grand total of 1298.
While logging just 20.0 minutes per game, Thybulle has posted steal and block numbers that place him among the league’s very best. Add his 1.6 steals per game, which places him near the top of the NBA, and it’s hard to argue any single defender is more disruptive – more repeatedly in the other team’s grill – than Thybulle. Thybulle has made an impact on par with defenders who have played 10-15 more minutes each night.
