Joe Dumars. MJ said he was his toughest defender. Good enough for me.

I swear people don't understand what a beast Marion was.
Round of applause for making yourself look like the biggest fool in this thread. Bravo!

Marion was a beast but he isn't the best defender of the past 20 years. He never even made an All-Defensive first team

Marion was a damn good defender.

I think he even shutdown Bran during the biggest finals choke of all time.

I agree with OP. Marion arguably best defender of 1-5 in past few years. He was a freak athlete so he could guard the smallest PGs but tall and strong enough to guard Cs.

idk if I would go that far but he is underrated. He made the Suns look decent defensively. As soon as he left they became of one of the worst defensive teams in the league.

So many names mentioned in this thread and all I see are Kobe's bodycount.

Old injured Kobe after three straight finals, but Kobe would've still beat them with Bran's cast, GUARANTEED.

But the same Kobe that kept your franchise from winning a title.

If you're going to make a thread like this, it would probably help to not shit on anybody else who has a different opinion, especially when its something logical like Artest, Allen, Ben Wallace.

Anyway, I'd second Ben Wallace. He could switch off and guard anybody also but I'd agree with you that Marion was beast.
