Default Who was the better European defender? Dimitrios Diamantidis or Thabo Sefolosha?

I've heard that this guy from Greece is a defensive beast overseas along w/Robertas Javotokas(spelling?) from Lithuania. But I wanted to know who was a better defensive guard from Europe? Diamantidis or Sefolosha? If anybody has some info, please leave some comments; and also your opinion on if you would think that he would fit in w/the bulls

Diamantidis is big with long hands and really dedicated in defense (DPOY 2 years in a row in the Euroleague). His one-on-one D is good, but pressing the lanes for steals and playing disrupting defense is his strongest feature. He's also a good shot-blocker, being top-10 in the Greek League last year, despite being a PG. But he says he doesn't want to play in the NBA.

I haven't seen Thabo play.

I've seen Thabo play a few times, he is good, he reminds me of Bruce Bowen only an inch or two shorter.

diamantidis is hands down the best perimeter defender in europe. but he isn't as young as sefolosha and hasn't got as much as upside

I still have a feeling Pax knows something we don't about Sefolosha. It'll be revealed eventually.

after watching Greece beat USA, I'm convinced that he is the real deal; somebody tell Pax to save that last roster spot for him, I don't care about upside; he would fit in nicely w/skiles' system
