In the 2012 NBA Playoffs, we are sure to see a lot of great defense being played. But with Dwight Howard injured, arguably the NBA’s top defender will be on the outside looking in. With that in mind, who are the best defenders in the 2012 NBA Playoffs?
At point guard, the best defender is Avery Bradley of the Boston Celtics. At shooting guard, Tony Allen of the Memphis Grizzlies is the cream of the crop. LeBron James of the Miami Heat is the best small forward defender. At power forward, Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs continues to be elite. In the middle, look no further than Andrew Bynum of the Los Angeles Lakers.
