Steph Curry is a score 1st pg and isn’t a good defender, but had Draymond and Klay (two great defenders) and their team defense was fine.
Steph, Kyrie, and TParker are some score first/no defense playing pg’s who’ve won titles the last 4 years. Jus sayin.
Steph is a good defender.
Both Kyrie and Steph pick up their defense when needed, but Green and Klay are not the only Allstar defenders on their team. They have four great defenders and one that can hold his own in the starting lineup (plus two off the bench.) We have two in the starting lineup, inwhich one we don't even know if he'll be as solid as before the injury. We're hurting on defense more than offense, with a healthy KP our offense is not bad, add Mikal and it will be better, but our defense would be top.
My only point is you don’t need a pg that is great at defense. Hell, we have one already, but he’s not good on offense, and that’s a bigger problem.
With regard to Steph, I was just responding to the “you can have two of the best defenders in the game in your lineup and your team defense would be worse” and Klay and Dray are two of the best in the league. Didn’t count Durant cuz they still won a title before him, and didn’t count Iggy cuz you only mentioned lineup.
This isn’t really a big deal, and I get what you’re saying, but pg is the least concern when it comes to defense... that’s all I’m sayin. Top pg’s drop 30-50 points on each other all the time and their teams are still tops in the league (GSW, OKC, BOS, POR, HOU/when Harden was pg, etc).
But yea, Mikal is prob the best pick for this team. Getting someone like him, and a top scoring pg like Kemba via 19’ FA would put this team in the playoffs with a chance to have a 99’ type run to the top. Provided we have a better coach.
