Default Re: Vote for the Top 10 Defensive Players in NBA History

These are the 10 best defenders ive seen based on 3 categories (interior, perimeter and allround/versatility)

Hakeem Olajuwon, Dikembe Mutombo and David Robinson (there is a couple of more equally good paint defenders i feel i could replace their names with) i have to include because thats the best interior defense ive seen...

Gary Payton, Michael Jordan, Ron Artest and Bruce Bowen i have to include because they are the best perimeter defenders ive seen (in their prime ofcourse), ridicilous lateral quickness, hands, anticipation, relentless... simple as that.

Scottie Pippen, Lebron James and Dennis Rodman i have to include because they are by far the most versatile defenders ive seen, sure they were not the best interior defenders or perimeter defenders (Scottie has a case on that end tho) but when you combine their perimeter/interior and any type of defense (insane versatility as a result) was there anybody better overall/allround defenders that way and was there anybody who could do the things they did defensively (like lets say, defend up to five/all positions)? Think about it.
