Raja Bell. Defensive nightmare, excellent shooter, and is better as creating his shot than Bowen.

Raja Bell, because Bowen is more of a dirty player.

Bowen if you are looking for an exclusive role player. Bell if you need more than D and open threes. Plus I think he will last a few more years than Bowen.

These kind of guys make all the difference for teams winning percentages.

Even if Bells defense is overrated ( I don't think it is ) he is still a way better offensive player then Bowen.

Give me Bell without a doubt.

Myself, I would probably take Bowen (even though I hate him) it's getting tougher and tougher to find a defensive SF.

because defense is overrated as an individual trait. no one is no body's stopper. simple as that. you can be a nuisance for a short duration. tangibles happen by chance. it is not a skill. give me raja.

Igoudala's more of a shooting guard, and not a great defensive player.
Hassell should not be on this list at all.
Josh Smith is not a great one-on-one defender...

But yeah 6 other Small forwards, out of how many in the league?

Iggy will play most of his minutes this year at 3. But yeah, he can score too.
Hassell isn't all bad at on the ball D.
Josh Smith isn't a man up defender, neither is AK, but they are incredible defenders.

But the 2/3 position is way blurred now anyway. They swith on Defense for matchup reasons.

How many defensive 2s are there? All in all there aren't a lot of guys that hang their hat on Defense, but 6-10 at one position isn't a small number I don't think.
