Bill Russell owns this “didn’t exist during his time” accolade and clearly next best ain’t close

Wouldn't Shane Battier be considered the "defensive anchor", if anyone on that team?
lol no

that team's hyperaggresive defense (designed to hide Bosh's incapability to protect the rim in a traditional PnR coverage) was wholly predicated on LeBron's (and to a lesser extent Wade's) inhuman ability to cover ground

a period article:

Quote:
Ultra-aggressive help defense is really hard work. Replay that clip and watch how far DeRozan’s ghost has to move as the Knicks swing the ball. That’s brutal, and it’s not a coincidence that the only team that consistently mirrors the help defense of its ghosts is Miami, Rucker says. The Heat have three of the best wing defenders in the league in Shane Battier, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade, and the latter two are among the NBA’s most gifted pure athletes. James can mimic DeRozan’s hyperactive ghost in a way no other player can, Rucker says. “LeBron basically messes up the system and the ghosts,” Rucker says. “He does things that are just unsustainable for most players.”

Oh, Cool! Then go ahead and add Kobe to that list as well. Ron, much like Battier, guarded the opposing teams best player, but the team's defense was predicated on Kobe's elite help defense and individual defense. You remember Kobe, right? One of the greatest perimeter defenders of all time? Father to the All-Defensive team? You remember.


How about Tristan Thompson in Cleveland? Or is it the same thing, the top defender is Lebron because of <InsertExcuse>?

Are you saying Kobe Bryant is a better defender than Ron Artest?

Guarding 1-5 all day long

Seemingly endless amounts of primes. Can this man be stopped?

It wasn't as Lakers could afford to run classic schemes because of Gasol and Bynum being legit rim protectors unlike Bosh.

Bynum barely played in the 2 finals series where Kobe was FMVP, BUT OK.


Gasol I can understand, but even he wasn't strong enough to lock down big men down low. Yall love to overrate everyone on the Lakers except the man himself.

You realize it's called the Bill Russell Finals MVP award right?

And, if you wanna play the technicality 'it didn't exist' game, then 5 for Tim Duncan, 4 for Shaq.

I've seen you make good, normal conversational posts when you try. Why do you do this shit?

Will anyone ever top 3 FMVPs as team's defensive anchor?

Another GOAT record
