Stop being such a hater, think you already said that before and I'll say it again:
Rodman was drafted in 1986, made his first all-defensive team in 1989, and won DPY in 1990 and 1991, he was a better perimeter defender in his younger years, as far as perimeter m2m D he was in his prime in his younger years, guarding Magic, Jordan and such.
Pip was drafted in 1987, made the defensive team for the first time in 1991. Already a great defensive player.
Larry was in the league 'till 1992, at 35, and since 1988 he was never the same, banged up, completely wrecked back, couldn't almost practice, overweight... That also even things out a lot even if you wanna go by that route, even if you say they weren't in their primes, so wasn't a old, overweight, full of career ending injuries, Larry Bird.
Plus saying the vid doesn't mean much, you still got guys like Bobby Jones, Cooper, Jordan, McCray, Pressey, Clifford Robinson, Grant... And even missing guys like Nance, Roundfield, Buck Williams, Moncrief, McDaniel....
