Default Re: Rank their defenses: MJ, Kobe, Lebron, Pippen

Pip
MJ
LeBron
Kobe

Bryant would be higher if he put more effort into that aspect of the game but he has played terrible defense the last few years at stretches at a time by simply costing on that end of the court. Even prime Kobe coasted too much for my taste in that regard but still had enough defensive awareness where it didn't hurt the team much.

I do believe kobe could be closer to lebron but it would probably have a negative impact on his offense

pippen
lebron/jordan
kobe


of course kobe is last, he played 17 years in the nba, and played great defense for about 4 years, good defense for about 3-4 years and atrocious d for at least 9 years. he was one of the worst defensive sg in the league last year, and formed the worst defensive backcourt in the league. put this question on a serious basketball forum like realgm and kobe will be last in about 90% of posts.

the most overrated is actually Kobe. As everybody's basically mentioned, he's good when he wants to be. Otherwise he might as well be sitting down.

Default Re: Rank their defenses: MJ, Kobe, Lebron, Pippen

1. Scottie Pippen = The most versatile defender in NBA history, naturally that gives him the title of the best overall/all court/all player defender... perhaps EVER... thats my opinion...

2. Lebron James = Just as versatile as Pippen, arguably somewhat better at interior help defense defending C/PF's and transition/breakaway defense (chasedowns)... but Pippen had better man-to-man defense (better lateral quickness perhaps).

3. Michael Jordan = Maybe the best man-to-man perimeter defense on this list.... but limited to guarding SG's and some PG's/SFs.... still could be above or at Lebron/Pippen level of defensive impact, but nah, my logic picks the guys who can & does do more defensively overall.....

4. Kobe Bryant = Same as MJ's defensive abilities, but a notch below...

I agree with this ranking. Wade would probably be ahead of Kobe if he is included although Kobe's defensive peak was better than Wade's imo. When they were both at their peak, Kobe wasn't the same defender though. He never had a season where he put everything together at once like Wade did in 2009 and 2010.

Easy. Kobe has been far too inconsistent on the defensive end for the past four seasons. Great man-to-man defender when focused, but that's pretty much all he has to offer these days. He's rarely ever "focused".
