Default Most accurate defensive stat? Website?

All these endless bickering whether this player A plays better defense than player B, that player C actually sucks etc.

Yes, there is that defensive rating at basketballreference but is that accurate?

With a ton of high screens being set out there for an offensive player, how can we really establish a defender is really doing great at stopping the other player?

The answer is none. Just as their is no stat that is the "most accurate" for offense.

thanks. Yes, I checked it, is seems accurate, esp seeing D'Russell, IT and Kyrie in the bottom 400th of the pile.

Frankly every "stat" has lots of issues that make it impossible to use as a sole basis for things like this, defensively or offensively. Using a culmination of different stats and metrics you get a better picture, as well as actually watching the players play and knowing what's going on in-game

It's not the ultimate defensive stat, of course there would be some other flaws.

Yes, I understand but I just don't want to just rely on the eye test to simply proclaim somebody was a good or bad defender per se.

DBPM from bball ref and espn's RAPM are very good. You can mash it up with DRTG and DWS/48 to form a pretty accurate judgement
