It's not all about shooting in basketball. Players train hard on shooting and their offensive skills that most of the time they forget what wins a championship. That's defense!
Defensive players for me are rare breeds, they are the kind of players who hustle and go an extra mile to ensure that the other teams don't score against them and as they make the team better.
Here are the best in defense in the NBA this 2017.
