The obvious choices are Bill Russell, Nate Thurmond, Hakeem Olajuwon, Wilt Chamberlain and Tim Duncan.

However, i will go with Russell.

I'll go with Hakeem

Great man to man defender, rebounder, can block shots, went up against elite centers (Ewing, Robinson, Shaq)

Intelligence, skills, position, athleticism, one on one defense, intimation, presence, versatility, success because of defense, changing the center's position and so on.

Yep. Everything besides ' changing the center position'. He didn't really do that. He undoubtedly met the status quo for that era, he just did it a lot better.

Good point.

However, i meant to say another thing. Because of his use of his physical advantages, he went up high to reject shots and to grab a rebound, which were certainly first seen thing in his era.

As a result, players like Baylor and Wilt arrived soon with excellent physical gifts who were also capable to play it above the rim.

Wallace could be substituted, for someone like Grant or Robinson.
