Default The Myth of Lebron the elite defender

I can name at least 10 guys who are better man defenders just at the small forward position.

It's amazing how someone like lebron can get the media to fool the public whereas someone like dirk who has developed into a solid defender will always be regarded by casual fans as an atrocious defender

Please do name those 10 guys who are better man defenders just at the small forward position, those guys who can completely shut down the most athletic and best point-guard in the game in a 7 game series.

While at it, please do name other forwards or even players who can efficiently guard up to 4 positions and has equal defensive leadership and leads the league in Defensive WinShares, who also might be the best chasedown blocker in NBA history and one of the all-time great help defenders.

did you watch the Finals? he can't even guard third string point guards. get out of here with this "he guards 4 positions bullshit."

he "shut down" rose with the help of 2 help defenders, thats why. i've never seen anyone else get so much credit for allegedly shutting down a guy who shot atrociously all throughout the postseason.

He is better than at least half of those guys. Tayshaun Prince is so over-rated as a defender these days. He is better at guarding two-guards than he is at the elite three's in the league. Paul Pierce and Lebron have destroyed Prince in the playoffs.
