    Who was the best defensive point guard of all time?

    I tried to make a little but longer of a list, because this is so much harder to gauge than the center spot I think.

    I'm allowing multiple votes, but please only pick your top three.


    I have included a couple of guys that might seem odd. Darrell Walker for one, but that guy was an amazing defender and use to give Jordan fits in practice when he was on the Bulls. Players from the era would say he was one of the best defenders at the position

    I've also included Stockton because even though he wasn't a lock-down one-on-one defender, there was nobody in the game who was a better at guarding the passing lanes and he was an amazing team defender and was always quick to move to help with a double team and still get back to his man when the ball got moved out.

    I've also included Oscar Robertson even though he's got not All-Defensive teams spots. I am not old enough to have seen him play, but I know from listening to guys from back in the day, many said he was the best defender in the league, or the best defender in the back court, even though FRazier seems to have gotten more love at the time.

    I'm also including Jerry West because though he played 'shooting guard' he often defended the point guard from what I hear, and he and Goodrich usually split ball handling duties (they were running with two shooting guards like the 96/97/98 Bulls.


    My apologies if I missed anybody you liked, but please vote other in that case and share your thoughts on whoever I missed below.
    Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?
    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    These questions are tough b/c we talk about offensive so much that guys with a less complete games get left off the list. I think Greg Anthony and Linsey Hunter were two the better defensive points i've ever seen. Henrick is also bad ***. I voted for GP and Mo- not sure though

    By reputation, Payton. But probably Dennis Johnson.

    GP but Ron Harper was pretty good too. Could probably put Kidd up there as well but Glove for sure.
