    At this point, I think he's still our best defensive player. Criminally underrated around here in that department. It will be more evident for some as the games tighten, and we learn to close.(which is happening)

    I see him playing defense at times, and then at other times I see him playing very poor D. It’s inconsistent at best, in my opinion.

    I believe he is resting on D to conserve energy for offense....his D is so intermittent and mostly lazy....so is Green's and Ego's....our perimeter D is awful.

    Best defender, best playmaker, all-star potential, most clutch. Anything I am missing?

    If you can't see it or don't understand, take a look at the numbers.

    His size & length are an asset most teams don't have out top.

    Highest defensive rating last year. Logging major minutes against starters.

    We have no interior D at the moment.

    You guys are being foolish.

    "best among the one of the worst" is more realistic .. otherwise this is clickbait and disingenuous..

    If we had a video compilation of KPJ not playing defense just like Harden had while he was here, KPJ's video would be 100x longer.

    He is better than EG. I think you should take this deal.

    It’s true . But that’s because Tate is out .

    one he comes back , and hopefully Jabari catches up a bit we might even be above average at times .

    kpj /tate / tari / garuba

    we need one more guy that can ball .

    KPJ's D falls short of expectations.
