Strictly man-to-man, perimeter D? Some of the greatest m2m defenders i've ever seen:

-Gary Payton
-Michael Jordan
-Bruce Bowen
-Scottie Pippen
-Joe Dumars
-Dennis Rodman
-Kobe Bryant (inconsistent but a complete doberman when focused)
-Michael 'Coop" Cooper
-Sidney Moncrief
-Ron Artest (Prime)

Post man defense is fine too, but I'd keep that separate.

Kidd

I am going to list non-superstars that are considered defensive specialist instead of the usual great defenders of all time. These are probably the best defenders of that particular era of 00's. Probably the greatest perimeter defenders in history in that era. Too many to name.

Cool list, thanks. That white on white Lakers uniform is ill. Hope they bring those back for all teams this year (though I think most people hated them for some reason?).

This thread was made for LeBron



Who could forget that great man defense play which completly changed the coarse of that game.

Plus he guards 1-5's (seriously he has a track record of shutting down good centers see that block splitter above and he shutdown Perkins in finals) and would rip MJ in half

Mike Conley has the best defensive footwork in the NBA today.
