Whos the warriors best defender? 

Post#1 » by miman15 » Thu Jun 13, 2019 2:25 am

Who's the best man to man defender?
Iggy, Klay, Durant or Dray?

I heard Colin said that Klay is the best defender and Iggy as second.

I always thought Klay is exceptional, but I think Iggy when healthy is the best is defender, his athletecism, iq and tremendous reflex gives him the edge.

Overall, definitely Draymond. Man to man, probably still Iggy.

I love Andre but he’s old now and conserves energy most of the time. The answer is clearly Draymond.

Iggy is goat level man defender. What he can do at his age on guys like lebron, harden, kd, kawhi is insane.


Green is the best overall defender.


Klay isn’t even in the conversation, what is this?

Green is by far their best defender.

Iggy is bar far their 2nd best.

Then KD and/or Klay depending on the game/matchup.

Klay is one of the elite perimeter defender. He might not be flashy, but he just gets the job done.

He’s very good but well below those two.

Draymond followed by Iguodala (who is still elite but clearly worse than his 2015-2017 versions). After that, it's Klay and Durant.

Iguodala. Not that close IMO.

There's a lot of players Draymond just gets burned by.

Who do I want defending guards? Klay. Draymond is a great defender he makes his money on help defense mostly its close but cant go wrong with either although draymond isnt a good one on one defender. Iggy is great also but hes too limited in the minutes he plays. Klay can give you 38-40 mpg on a daily basisWith how much this is a guard driven league i'll go Klay but it can go either way.

Dray. Iggy’s hands are ridiculous though.

Smartest would be Iggy, best overall Draymond. Lowkey a great defensive team if healthy with looney and KD. Very similar to the Raptors.

Green. Dude is never defending one person though. He is always anticipating the next move the other team will make.

depends on the matchup. Draymond is a great team defender while Klay is better man to man. Andre is great at defense overall but some games he plays like an old man and some games he is super-lively.
