Who defends these top wing players the best?
I think it goes
These guys seem to nag these greats a lot everytime they match up.
Battier is the fly to Kobe's &$#%#&@!..................
Another guy who defends Kobe well is Marquise Daniels. You have to throw Raja Bell on the list too.
The toughest I've ever seen someone consistently defend Kobe was Rubben Patterson. He got a lot of criticism because he claimed himslef the "Kobe Stopper", but he did as good a job as anyone. I also thought Trevor Ariza did a great job on Kobe the last game they played
people forget but courtney lee did a nice job on kobe,
Huh? Courtney is my boy from the 317, but Kobe punished him lol.
no he didn't
lee made kobe uncomfortable in the finals. its just that stan didnt let him defend kobe all the time.
plenty of people play nice defense. nocioni may not be a lockdown defender, but the guy sure is annoying as hell on the defensive end, anyone see how poorly he made nowitzki play? tyreke evans, for a rookie...plays pretty good defense. People should watch salmons defend kobe, it's an interesting thing.
anyway, the list of (my favorite defenders) .. as far as sg/sf.
7. c. lee
what about who defends Carmelo the best?
Artest HANDS DOWN
He is nice defensively too. He always dominates Pierce. Back in 2006 Pierce scored 17 pts. every game he played except when he was defended by Deng. I would guess that Deng defends Carmelo well too because Pierce and Carmelo are similar.
I put those guys cuz none of them really shoot well when they are guarding them, but as we all no they still score their points. I think deng and marion guard melo the best but its hard cuz melo takes smaller players to the post and the slow ones to the perimater
