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!!!!!


Lebron is one of the better defenders in the league but his strong areas are team defense.. He is going to get lit up by Dirk...

Dirk is money from everywhere

Its impossible to stop Lebron now. You cant do anything but play him straight up . You cant double team, shade or clog the paint vs him because he has Wade and Bosh. Superteam bullshit

No love for Marc Gasol? He makes a Z-Bo anchored front court work. Has Luc-Richard Mbah a Moute been mentioned yet?

Add Grant Hill to the ongoing list.

But for top 10 players in the NBA? Bron plays the 2nd best defense next to Dwight Howard. Thats says alot considering how much he gives on offense both as a scorer and playmaker. Where other guys listed over him are basically able to focus primary on defending. Some have more tasks but they dont have to carry a heavy burden as Bron.

This thread has went out to left field.. Lebron is clearly a top 5 defender but also makes such huge impact plays with his blocks and steals and has done alot of that in the Playoffs to help close teams out besides hitting a big jumper on the other end.

Not to mention that Lebron is a better team defender than most of the people posters have mentioned.

Lebron will win DPOY next season.



One year with a defensive wizard like Spoelstra has done wonders for him. Just watch him next year after one year under his belt with Spo.


Spoelstra made Wade a defensive anchor the last 2 years, Wade has been a BEAST on defense. And without a good defensive roster around Wade, the Heat defense was STILL ranked in the Top 5 in each of the last 2 seasons (before this year)... with Wade as the anchor.

And now with LeBron too?

Heat Defense >>>

There aren't 5 better defenders in the NBA than Lebron. He's the best wing defender in the league. Off the ball he is amazing and on the ball he is amazing. He's pippenesque in being able to defend four positions. He has amazing versatility and affects so many possessions. Anyone saying Rondo is a better defender is an absolute fool. Point guards aren't even allowed to be touched nowadays, you can still play the passing lanes, but no point guard can really be dominant defensively because of the rule changes. Lebron James is by far the most versatile defender on the wing in the NBA.

Default Re: Name 5 better defenders in the NBA than Lebron!

Dwight Howard
Andrew Bynum
Andrew Bogut
Tyson Chandler
Kevin Garnett
Joakim Noah

all have greater defensive impact. And then there's a bunch of guys who are in the same class:

Iguodala
Mbah a Moute
Deng
Tony Allen
Marc Gasol
Ibaka
