    Easily the best defensive Center of the last 20 years. Gobert is a complete chump when compared to Ben Wallace.

    he did lockdown shaq most f the time against Miami and LA.. also he canplay the perimeter defense very well because of his quickness and footwork.. Dennnis and Him are identical but the shot blocking skills make ben lil bit unique to dennis

      They DO it for positioning. If you PLAY center position which is the only position Ben Wallace COULD play you gotta be at least 6'10+ for teams to consider you. So Big Ben Wallace was listed at 6'10 even tho he was 6'8 really. Same with KD he said he WANTED to play Small Forward so that's why he lied about his height and was listed at 6'9 because if he was listed at 6'11 which is his REAL height teams WOULD immediately play him at the Power Forward & center position something he said he DIDN'T want to do in his early years in the league.

    • WutTheDeuce

      naw. Purposely adding/removing height is common. If you remember, KD was purposely slated at 6'9" when he was a rookie even tho he was def 6'11" in shoes. It's a common practice to lie about height in basketball. I don't get why it's done, but there you go.

    I wish "casuals" who look at his 5.7 point career average would comprehend how dominant he had to be on Defense to make 5 All NBA teams & finish top 10 in MVP voting 3 times. HOF impact. Well earned & deserved. Undrafted to the Hall.

      @Arizona Fire Ent Tmac was a volume shooter that couldn't get out of the first round. I don't get why people consider him to be some unstoppable force. His numbers were up because his shot attempts were through the roof. He was a good scorer but by no means was he great. He never won anything outside of all star nods and a few all nbas. Ben tied the NBA record for DPOYs with 4 and won a ring. TMac doesn't touch that. He won nothing of the sort, not even close.

      @Arizona Fire Ent Tmac was a better player but no where near as accomplished as Ben Wallace. The HOF is about your accomplishments as a player not your potential. How TF was Ben overrated when he was THE dominant defense force in the league for 4 years as an undrafted player? Basketball isn't just about scoring kid.
