To his credit Green plays out of position with pretty bad defensive helpers protecting his back and giving up a few pounds and inches on a nightly basis.

Noc can be a pesky defender. I don't see how he's even mentioned considering both Jason Thompson and Hawes are on the same team and are far worse defensively.

Mike Bibby should be on the list.

I guarantee that Jose Calderon is worse than anyone on that list.

For once, I can't disagree with Bargnani being accorded elite status.

Is Johnny Flynn really that terrible of a defender? I was just curious because in college he didn't seem to be a liability.

How is David West and Jeff Green on that list? Can't really disagree with the rest because I don't know much about the rest, but isn't Will Bynum a pretty good defender?
