Not really possible to defend a guard facing up in the current rule set.

Absolutely incredible how Kobe emasculated prime Battier and prime Artest in the SAME playoff series. Battier legit looks like he's gonna cry out there. Trying his absolute best but just can't do anything about greatness.

- His only good game from the '04 Finals. A series where he averaged 23 ppg on 38% FG.

- Raja Bell. Another defender who never made an All Defensive team. And those Suns were sure known for their defense....

- And who can deny the greatness of Aaron Affalo and Galinari in that Nuggets/Lakers series from 2012.

Shane Battier and Raja Bell both were on multiple all defensive teams. Please get your facts straight before you come in here spewing your nonsense like a typical Bran stan

Um, what are you talking about? Shane was all defense in 08 and 09 I believe. Either 1st or 2nd team. Raja Bell was all defense 1st team and 2nd team. I'm seriously starting to question either the age or bball knowledge of some of you. The only reason Bell even made it to the NBA is because of defense.

My bad. I don't know why basketball-reference has those accolades minimized on their page.

I don't know what's worse...this idiot not knowing these players were recognized for their defense, or going to basketball-reference and still being unable to figure that out.

You shouldnt need basketball reference to know Battier and Raja bell were all d teamers.....

That feels like knowledge you would just absorb through the decade+ you've been here.

Indian Guy getting exposed for not having watched any basketball before 2010. Then quickly tries to delete post to cover it up. Pathetic.

I knew they had defensive reps. Wasn't sure they actually made All D teams. I remember Bell often doing a good job on Kobe. Battier could never hang with Kobe laterally though. His claim to fame was that annoying face guarding.
