Again putting things into perspective - PGs are from the scrub level till Magic/Stockton level. They are all calling sets, are vocal, etc. Does it mean scrub = Magic? There is a wide range of leadership, regardless which side of the floor.

From watching Dream/Drob/Rodman, etc, or reading their interviews and other players testimonies, none of them stand-out as elite maestros of the D. Individually - sure, they are at All-time great level. Thats where Russell and KG are on a whole different level - they are for the D as Magic is for the O. Its THAT rare.
