    Talking by position, yes. There are more forwards that are better defenders than LeBron then there is point guards that are better defenders than Curry

    For defence:

    Lebron before 2013 > Curry > Lebron after 2013

    There is more to defense than man to man, Steph is a great team defender (playing the passing lanes, knowing when to rotate, boxing out , charges, steals, helping) Steph is good at all of these.

    James has a hard time backing Curry down. Like in game 1 of last year. Curry had always played Lebron well and forced him into ugly jump
    shots.

    Guess we'll never know since Klay Thompson always picks up the best opposing guard every game while Curry hides in the corner


    Unlike Curry, Lebron doesn't get taken out of the game on final defensive possessions and he always checks opposing teams SF

    Not sure I can go with this. Are we talking this year or overall career?
