LMA on Defense - Good, Bad, Great?

Often during debates of the best PF in the NBA defense is brought up. Specifically in the debate between KLove and LMA I have heard repeatedly that both are bad at defense. A claim I wish to refute.

I found this article posted a while back about how good LMAs defense is:

Does anyone have any other sources of info for LaMarcus defensive skill. Looking for any kind of stat that proves LMA is the best. I've been reading the internet lately and some people seem to think he is poor defensively ( that he is as bad as Kevin Love - WHAT?!?!). I hope to prove them wrong with facts - and personal jabs.

As far as a fan watching, I notice that LMA puts in a lot of effort on defense (especially if someone trys to be overly physical with him). He seems to get in good defensive position and certainly doesn't stand out as an issue on D. Back me up here and let me know what you think.

Is LMA good on defense, is he bad, or is he the greatest?

Hopefully in the game tonight Aldridge shuts love down, and that is proof enough.
