NBA all-time/current best scorers/defenders

It is a rather interesting topic I came up with some time ago. I was thinking about who is the best scorer at this position and that position. For instance if I wanted the best offensive team all-time or currently who would I have on that team. If I was facing a team with great scorers such as Kobe or MJ who would I ask to guard them. That is the whole point of this post. Create basically 4 starting lineups based on your opinion of course. 1 would be a list of the best scorers by position. You can only use let's say Wilt Chamberlain for scoring not defending. You also can't choose more than one position player. Example: You can't have on best scorers list Shaq and Chamberlain nor vise versa for defense. I'm a young fan which I will say first. I may not know the best of the best all-time, but I thought this would be a very interesting topic. This is like your own created teams. Best defenders vs the best scorers. I'll start:

Best scorers all-time:                                  Best defenders of all-time
C-Wilt Chamberlain                                    C-Bill Russel
PF-Duncan                                                 PF-KG
SF-Larry Bird                           vs                SF-Pippen
SG-Jordan                                                 SG-Clyde Drexler
PG-Magic Johnson                                      PG-Gary Payton

This is just best scorer by position. I did my best. You can argue both ways for KG being a great scorer and Duncan. They both needed in there in my humble opinion.

Best scorers right now:                                Best defenders right now:
C:Andrea Bargnani                                     C:Dwight Howard
PF:Dirk                                                     PF:Ibaka
SF:Lebron                              vs                SF:Rudy Gay
SG:Kobe                                                   SG:Manu Ginobili
PG:Russel Westbrook                                 PG:CP3

Remember some of these guys I named arn't nec. quote unquote superstars, but they are great in their own right. I mean I'm sure most folks don't even know who Ibaka is. In any case, this was rather fun and interesting. Hope for some solid feedback on this topic.
