When Describing a Resource, it may aggregate information from several other Resources. For instance Describing a Node will aggregate Pod Resources to print the Node utilization.
When Getting a Resource, it will only print information available from reading that Resource. While Get may aggregate data from the the fields of that Resource, it won't look at fields from other Resources.
