Swap Lewis for Shaq I’m sure GP would be in the playoffs but that wouldn’t make him a better defender.

If we are judging defense by team records you would need to rebuild the whole record book.


how long have you been a basketball fan.. how often do guys make first teams on non playoff squads


to bump a phenom like kobe who just came off making 1st team and winning a championship is kind of retarded IMO

We know the game Kenny. When Kobe faces a team they're historical great, while every team LeBron has ever faced is historically bad.

You and I clearly are looking for different things for all D team voting.

Im looking first for one thing....who the better defender was.

In fact...that may be the only thing im looking for with a slight nod towards playing enough of the season to be reasonable.

its why most people were tricked into thinking a younger lebron was a DPOTY candidate. later when they actually watched his finals defense exposed highlight compilations they realized the truth
That's not true at all and making the mistake of thinking that on ball defence is the only defence there is. There's on and off ball defence. There are plaenty of guys who were average on ball defenders but great off ball but they could still influence a game on the defensive end. Obviously mj was a better defender because he was great on and off ball but it doesn't mean LeBron was a bad defender.

actually it is entirely true and why allen iverson (an absolute abysmal defender) was leading the league in steals

Not repping worse defenders for an all defensive team because they have better players on their team giving them better records. Irrelevant information.

Of course OP has Kobe in his little list. He's not even close to being one of the best two players in nba history. He was regularly a negative defensively throughout his career.

You are not allowed to bring up facts.. You know even Kobe's coach Phil Jackson said KObe was not good on defense..

Long time Mentor Tex Winters said Kobe was not good on defense..

I will say that Kobe was a good defender especially in that first year that the Lakers won a title.. But after that I would say he GOT worse every year..

Kobe basically destroyed any prestige the all defensive team had when he was put on the team when he was literally a negative player defensively. I will say he played better defense in the playoffs, but the whole point of being on the all defensive team is consistency...being a consistent defender throughout the long 82 game season and Kobe was, frankly, never that besides 2000. What makes it even worse is he was being put on the team over a guy like Dwyane Wade who was a far superior defensive player.
