LeBron is a great defender. That is all.
Horace Grant was a great defender.
Dennis Rodman was dominant on that end of the floor. You can only base players on what their peers did on that side on the floor. So you look at guys like Charles Barkley or Karl Malone or Kemp orGrandmama. None of those guys were in the class of Rodman defensively.
LeBron is finally in his stage where kobe was in his defensive prime. Pound for Pound, he is one the the best out there. But when you talk about Dwight historically, he is in that Rodman conversation defensively.
This year, with his injuries and everything else, it's not been the most clear case of his dominance, and the offense isn't centered around him, because Kobe is a better offensive option and a better offensive creator than Dwight, but you Can run a playoff level offense through Dwight with parts that fit that style, just like Steve nash shows ytou that when MDA puts him out there with Blake and jamison and whoever, he can run an offense effectively as well.
The point is Kobe remains the "LeBron" of this team. So Wade(Dwight) and Bosh and ray Allen have to take a backseat to the GOOurT.
