Fan-ciful, while Martin has a small edge defensively over Gibson, Gibson has a far larger edge offensively over Martin. Gibsons passing, shooting and playmaking ability are far in excess of Martins. Don't get me wrong, I love Martin as player but i struggle to see how you can make an argument that Gibson is not the better all round player. If you Put Gibson on the Wildcats team instead of Martin, Perth would probably be just as good, possibly even better. You put Martin on the sixers instead of Gibson and we get worse due to Martins offensive deficiencies. Remind me also how Martin went against Jackson a few weeks ago and how Gibson did today? Gibson, not only held Jackson in check but hurt him significantly on the other end, Martin couldn't contain Jackson and did very little offensively to make up for it.
I felt Gubson wasn't actually bad at all down the stretch, it wasn't him that made most of the mistakes plus, the out of bounds call on him near the scorers bench was rubbish - it was clearly off Jackson's foot. Secondly, when Jackson stole the ball in the corner, he clearly fouled him, the refs call those two the way they should have been called and he has basically a flawless game. He also hit 3 of 4 free throws to ice the game after the unsporsmanslike call (which I also thought was the incorrect call). Didnt seem too rattled at all.
