Defense wins championships, always and forever. So to help your favorite NBA team get to the promised land, I've compiled a list of the best defensive free agents available to sign this offseason.
(Let's assume that our professional sport leagues were more cooperative and that there was no lockout.)
While there are some solid defenders in the 2011 free agent pool, no one will get the list of players confused with the infamous 2010 class (remember?) or the 2012 class that features Chris Paul and Deron Williams.
Still, defenders are vital to winning in the long run in the NBA, and you don't want to be left behind with no defensive stars. Ask Golden State.
