I never thought Battier was a great ONE on ONE defender..He was a great help defender with great awareness..and why he was guarding Kobe is beyond me...Originally posted by <b>grizzoistight</b>!

Here are mine in no real order, there are some that will be great defenders and some that are already, but I did not mention the guys you already talked about, here are the rest.
Jackie Manuel: Big tall, cat quick, good feet, could be a premire SG defender in the furture for the Heels.
James Thomas: Anyone that defends players that are 3-5 inches taller than him and out weigh him by 30-60 lbs, I think that is a great defender, great against bigger players at the 5 spot.
Channing Frye: Real good shot blocker, he is right up there with Okafor.
Eric and Derrick Craven: Probably the best defenders at PG, really athletic and very quick, but I just could not remember which one was better.
Antione Pettaway: Pretty small and skinny, but he is the best on the ball defender in college basketball, very very quick and moves his feet side to side really well.
Justin Hamilton: He is a great defender, even guarded Prince last year and he is only like 6-3 an Prince is 7-0.
