If Crosswhite is unlucky Pledger is very unlucky. No Redhage is a joke and the fact Stiendl was even considered is laughable. You have no basketball knowledge, go play world of warcraf or something!

Where is DJ and Schensh?

DJ is overrated. Can't play D. Has the worst shot selection. Totally overrated.

Schensh is good if you have players coaches who know how to use him.

Forgot Pledger. He slips in after Knight and Johnson drops out.

The original list is bad but lol at everyone bagging it without doing their own.

X, you do realise by naming 25 players plus 12 unlucky ones (37) that is half the entire league!

PF.Scott
Vukona (I'm a Breakers fan)
Redhage

C. Knight

Pledger

I only did top 3 as there are only 8 teams.
PF and C are the deepest spots. I didn't include players who couldn't defend a chair so hence why Gibson is the only Sixer and guys like Trigger and Foreman weren't included either. R.Martin wasn't far off the pace in the PG race either.

sorry but damian martin is clearly the best defensive player in the league (not just amongst PGs), and pressure would have to be one of the top 3 skills needed for the PG position. He also adds to great shot blocking and rebounding, unique for a guard. He would be behind jackson and possibly Ervin, but would have to be top 3 just for defensive skills he brings.

the best defensive PG is currently Jackson Ox, check his stats.
R.Martin was playing the best out of the Australian PG's up until he injured his knee.
D.Martin is a heck of a player but not top 3 sorry (nor top 5), if he had a more consistant shot he may be of more value.

Vukona is a flat out thug. The other 5 Power Forwards in this list are way, way more skilled.

Gibson is a better defender than Jackson and on par with Martin.

@ak47, thank god, finally someone calls Gibbo a PG.

the defensive intensity and pressure martin does is not recorded as a stat. But his ability to disrupt the offense of his opposition player/team is invaluable as a PG. Its as valuable as being a scoring threat

i admire vukona for his workrate and sheer strength but the same way the afl rule makers tried to curb matty primus's dominance by changing the ruck rules vukona could be taken out of the game if refs actually watched him. although i guess the same could be said about a few other players in the game like robbins. i havent watched a tonne of vukona so what i have seen may not be entirely representative but when i have watched him his rebounding has consisted of 2 movements, shove, and reach for the ball. never just jump up. wtf?

league strengths obviously at pg's and guards (particularly undersized guards at pg size.

weakest at pf i reckon. undersized league but still the pf's are one-sided offensive threats.

not alot of great sf's either.

Reply #398848 | Report this post


Anyone who says Vukona is a thug or fouls when he rebounds is a complete idiot. Sure he isn't the cleanest player. He is definitely a top 3 power forward and anyone who says differently needs to look at a bit more tape!
