Seems like everyone I know who is interested in Basketball has been so impressed by LBJ's last night's performance that I see ppl claiming he is the best defender in NBA now. People whom I heard criticize LBJ at every opportunity are now jumping on his bandwagon. I see them gloating in his KINGLY defensive performance on facebook/twitter and shit. My friend who is a Lebron stan keeps posting vidz and gifs on my wall celebrating Lebron's first ring already
Yea he is playing great and dominating, but seriously best defender in the NBA?
ETA: He believes LBJ is gonna shut down Dirk!!!!!
Re: Name 5 better defenders in the NBA than Lebron!
There are not many players that defend better than LeBron. What special about LeBron is his versatility. I think he can effectively guard 1 trough 4, even 5.
There are some wing defenders that I'd say are better at guarding the perimeter than LeBron and also some post defenders that I'd preffer over him. The fact that he can guard both, at a high level, makes him a valuable defender and it's the reason some people are calling him the best right now (me not included though).
