    Default Out of Our Starting 5, Rate the Best to Worst on Defense

    Seeing how defense seems to be today's hot topic, out of our starting 5 rate in order who's the best to worst on defense. :confuse:

    For those that are currently living under a rock and aren't sure who are starting 5 are, they are as follows: Jose, DeMar, Hedo, Bosh and Bargnani. 1 being the best defender and 5 being the worst.

    Copy and paste this:

    1)

    2)

    3)

    4)

    5)

    Feel free to discuss your choices too.

    No offence to Bargnani, whose defence has improved when he is guarding on the ball. Too many times he is lost on switches, close-outs and overall effort. At least (the past couple of games) I have seen some real effort from Jose.

    This is my first post so you are going to get more than you asked for. Here is my list below enjoy:


    1) Bosh-Positives: Good help defence, Shows well on picks
    Negatives: 1on1 defender, Lacsidasical guarding bigs on the perimeter

    2) Hedo- I havent seen enough to grade but because he hasnt looked that
    bad so he gets this spot by default
    3) Derozan-Postives: Passing lanes, blocking shots (help defense)
    Negatives: 1 on 1, fighting through screens
    4) Bargnani-Positives: Better 1on1 defender than Bosh, Shot blocking
    Negatives: Showing on picks
    5) Jose- Positives: He shows up, Talks
    Negatives: 1on1, pick n roll, team defense

    I think that has to be one of the fairest summaries of our key guys that I read in awhile. Well said 2mrw2day.

    Welcome to our forums too. Bare with us while we get it up and running. Might take a couple weeks.
