    This feels about right.


    Of course... peak Lebron is above all of them.

    Artest was the scariest of the bunch for sure.

    Man to man, probably Kawhi, Pippen for help defense, Marion overrated, PG also overrated.

    It's hard to make definitive ranks like this because we don't have enough metrics for defense. The ranges are pretty wide.

    Based on what we have as well as the eye test I'd definitely have Marion and George behind the other four though. Kirilenko was very impactful but had a very short prime so he's behind the first tier.

    Pippen
    Kawhi
    Artest

    Kirilenko

    Marion
    George

    This. I think Kawhi is the best perimeter defender ever pre injuries.
