Re: Chamberlain & Thurmond > Russell Defensively
Thurmond might be a better 1v1 post defender, but he isn't as good overall. Russell was the first anchor in the middle. He's the best.
I don't have either Wilt or Thurmond in the top 5 defensive centers. Neither of them is better than Russell, Hakeem, Robinson, Walton, or Dwight Howard.
