    Sabonis is clear third.

    Second in rebounds, ninth in assists. Among ALL players. While scoring 20 per game on 62%.

    defense is half the game so to rank based on just offense makes no sense especially when it results in winning

    Sabonis is one of the worst defenders there is so to say he's 3rd based on one end of the court is ridiculous and I like the guy

    Rockets, Miami and Lakers aren't much over .500 despite the greatness of their centers. Winning matters

    I don't. Best defender on best team in the west has to be in the mix over guys that don't play D and their teams are nothing special

    You certainly have a lot to say about rankings for a guy who doesn’t do them himself.

    when cumbersome role players are the best defender of their generation on one of the best defenses we've seen on the top team in the west they certainly do

    not to mention his elite rebounding at both ends
