With the Rockets now having Artest, which team will have the best all-a-round defense?

Celtics
Rockets
Spurs
Pistons
Other (Say which team)

Explain your answer.

With the Rockets already being an elite defensive team, I think the Artest trade makes them the best defense next year. They now have an even better team defense, along with two of the best 1 on 1 defenders with both Artest and Battier.

Rockets were the best last year, and with the addition of the best defender in the league in Artest, the best only gets better.

Boston stills has the best defense until we can prove to everyone that our defense is better. Rox havent even stepped on the court yet, you cant say we have the best defense.

**** the Celtics! Without Posey their defence has taken a huge blow and i don't think they will be as good in the playoffs next year because of it. The Houston D is lookin' pretty sexy.

I chose Houston but i would split that point with Boston because with Artest and Battier we can guard the superstar on opposing teams that are a 4,3,2 but with the celtics there defense can guard the 5,4,1 positions very well so both of them could be equals in defence. I can't wait to actually see Houston play Boston it will be one hell of a defensive game, doubt that it will be high scoring at all.

Houston and Boston will be the top 2 in the league next year, but I voted Rockets because now they added another defensive player to the mix and enabling another defensive stopper to come off the bench.

Why would we? Look at Dallas or Phoenix, none of them have really changed their philosophy either.

Celtics will be in the mix, along with the Pistons, Spurs, and Rockets, and the Cavs.

Im looking forward to seeing our D seeing as we lost Horry and Barry, and probably Finley who sucked on D last year.

If you put it like that, the rockets can guard the 2,3,4 and 5 because of Yao. Or you not gon include the big fella?
