It's apparent that those voting for Vince Carter haven't done much research and no little about the NBA's past. If you want to vote for modern players, Chris Webber or Alonzo Mourning would make more sense. You don't have to look too far back to figure that out.

Anyhow, I'm returning to voting for Dave DeBusschere.

It's been asked whether he was greater than Sidney Moncrief. I think he was. The experts who voted for the NBA's 50 Greatest Players thought so, too.

Both were well-rounded players who hung their hats on defense. Moncrief played more on the perimeter and could even run an offense. DeBusschere mixed it up nearer to the basket and was an excellent rebounder.

Both had a good amount of team success, but DeBusschere was a member of 2 championship teams, and Moncrief never made it to the Finals.

Additionally, while Moncrief was one of the greatest defensive players, DeBusschere was probably better. He has an argument for being the greatest defensive forward in NBA history. Every season they had the award and he was in the league, DeBusschere was on the All-Defensive 1st Team (6 consecutive seasons). He mostly played power forward, but would often defend guards, and he also defended Wilt Chamberlain in the NBA Finals. The only other player that comes to my mind who was that versitle of a defender is Dennis Rodman. Scottie Pippen didn't even have that kind of range.
