How to use defender in a sentence?

  1. Jim Baker:

  2. Steve Kerr:

    Andre is one of the smartest defenders I've ever seen, it's funny to say when a guy gets 44 points that the defender did a really good job, but I thought Andre did extremely well. Made LeBron take some tough shots.

  3. Ibrahim Hooper:

    The problem comes when you look at a dichotomy between being an Australian or an American and being a Muslim. We don’t see a dichotomy, we see that, in fact, the American-Muslim community is the prime defender of the U.S. Constitution. We see no conflict between Islamic beliefs and practices and living as a productive, contributing citizen whether it’s in Australia or America.

  4. Jurgen Klopp.Prior:

  5. The United:

    He is not anti-American, but he is very much a defender of The US.
