  1. I would give it to Rodman as the Greatest Defender ever .He owned Jordan and Pippen defensively in the playoffs for years in the 80's . He shut down defensively countless Allstars and HOF's at 5 positions in the 80's , 90's, and 2000's .Rodman has 5 Rings for a reason .He shut down these guys routinely especially in the playoffs and Finals like :

    Stockton , Malone , Payton , Kemp , Shrempf, Shaq , Kobe , Ewing , Mourning , Miller, Smits , Robinson , Duncan , Carter , T Mac , Garnett , Hardaway , Magic , Worthy , Wilkins , Barkley , Drexler as examples .

  2. Draymond is 8th best for post season triple doubles. He will likely be a top three when it’s said and done. He has 8 and needs 3 more to be tied with Jason Kidd at number 3. LeBron is 2nd with 23. Magic is 1st with 30. Basically everyone in the top 10 are in the HOF.

  3. Dreymond greenes reason of thinking why he is the greatest defender is understandable but not true because when MJ was drafted his mind set was not to become the goat but to win and look where that mind set got him

  4. Draymond surely did learn from Lebron's arrogance. the scary part is whenever someone says they are the best, the end up swallowing their own words. Lebron getting eliminated, now Draymond getting schooled by Pascal.

  5. Rodman defends 5s like Shaq and Hakeem..guard Jordan during the Pistons -Bulls rivalry.. top that Doraemaom Green!!
