    Default Who defended prime Shaq the best ?

    It's known that Shaq was unstoppable in his prime, but who defended him best in his prime ?

    I might be biased, but this comes to mind http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vc2qE...mbedded#at=413

    Prime Sabonis would have absolutely raped Shaq

    Ben wallace played great defense against him in the 2004 finals but wish we could have seen a prime sabonis and prime shaq go at it

    "What is Rick Fox thinking? ...he's just out there hacking, not even being a defensive player." Love Bill Walton.

    Too bad we never got to see a young Sabonis in the NBA. From what I've heard he was huge, skilled, and smart.

    Probably Sabonis, though it certainly wasn't single coverage. I can't remember a guy seeing more double/triple teams than Shaq in the 2000 WCF.

    And Ben? No, not sure why someone would mention the 2004 finals when Shaq wasn't having many problems scoring and that series, and while I don't consider 2004 to be Shaq's prime, Yao gave Shaq a lot more trouble than Ben did by that point.

    Prime Sabonis was BEAST but he wasn't better than Shaq.

    Ostertag...big dumb guys who would just stand there with their hands up. Shaq only had a few go to moves and if you took those away it was hard for him to adjust. Shaq is overrated when it came to skill set. Forgot about Big Ben wallets-him.

    LOL

    The myth of prime Sabonis is more ridiculous than Jordan and Wilt combined.

    And that was pretty much what he was except not as tall as yao, but better passer.
