Isn't the the SG position thin at the moment???
I think he should be in the top 10 solidly
After those 3 seems like a toss up. Also Kobe is coming off a serious injury while Wade is dealing with some issues as well. Definitely some room for up and coming young guards to vault themselves into the top 5.
Klay Thompson will probably be in the running and his defense has been pretty damn solid.
It's solid, he competes and moves his feet really well and is able to challenge shots. He'll lose his man occasionally off the ball, but that's kind of understandable from a young player on defense. He's also an excellent rebounder at the 2.

I think a lot of that has to do with Thompson not guarding his own position and being matched up with the opposing team's point guard a lot.
