Re: Who defended prime Shaq the best ?
Prime Sabonis would easily be the best player today. His game was made for this era.
Sabonis in the 80s and 90s lacked physicality and played further out more than what was standard in the NBA then.
Sabonis had a better passing game than Gasol, shot better from the outside/3 than Chris Bosh, was tall and long enough to guard every center on opposing team, large enough in his prime to grab 13-14 rebounds - grabbed 10 rpg as a 34 year old.
In short he would murder the league to the like of 28-14-7 on great efficiency.
