Default Re: Rank their defenses: MJ, Kobe, Lebron, Pippen

1. Scottie Pippen = The most versatile defender in NBA history, naturally that gives him the title of the best overall/all court/all player defender... perhaps EVER... thats my opinion...

2. Lebron James = Just as versatile as Pippen, arguably somewhat better at interior help defense defending C/PF's and transition/breakaway defense (chasedowns)... but Pippen had better man-to-man defense (better lateral quickness perhaps).

3. Michael Jordan = Maybe the best man-to-man perimeter defense on this list.... but limited to guarding SG's and some PG's/SFs.... still could be above or at Lebron/Pippen level of defensive impact, but nah, my logic picks the guys who can & does do more defensively overall.....

4. Kobe Bryant = Same as MJ's defensive abilities, but a notch below...
