This is tough to answer since there are no statistics to measure defense. Other than Steals which they are pretty close at.
Give me an address I WILL COME TO YOU.

I think it's Chris Paul. He can guard both guard positions successfully, he's not a big mismatch when posted even by SGs and he has a better ability staying in front of his man than Rondo.


Rondo thread with just two replies is just not right!

Rondo's arms are longer which gives him a good advantage when defending taller defenders. I honestly won't say if Rondo is clearly better because I usually don't pay that much attention to each player on defense, but I've seen plenty of examples

BTW This is just not one clip, just plenty of examples throughout the season\

Rondo. Paul isn't the defender he used to be. Its not like he's bad or anything, but Rondo is better at defense.

Westbrook, eventhough he falls asleep a lot which hurts his case, could the best defender at his position, he's stronger and more athletically gifted than Both Rondo and CP3, but he gets trapped easily under screens making him lose his man.


But one on one I think RW is the best.

@Nash S10

Just 3-4 days ago I watched Paul holding his own in the post against Kobe. The best footwork in the NBA. A guy who has perfected his post game.
How often do you think Rondo can slap the ball out of the defender's hands.

I'm not trying to say that he's not a good defender. He's AT LEAST top 5 defensive PG. But Paul is better IMO. and not just concentrate at post defense. I believe that Paul can be a more effective defender overall.

Rajon Rondo. Paul in his prime was a better defender than current Rondo, but as of now, it's Rondo. He is so good at pick-pocketing opponents, and his very large hands and long arm span helps a lot.

CP3 his man defense is very good and he's good at shading defenders where he wants them to go

I love Paul but I think Rondo has a small edge. Longer arms help him contest shots and he's stronger too. Remember him guarding Lebron in the post?

Chris Paul is stronger than Rondo and I do remember him guarding LeBron in the post it was foul after foul after foul but they were never called.

Paul plays passing lanes and Rondo does his reach around. Both are given way too much credit defensively.

I guess of the two I'd take Rondo because of his rebounding and he's is harder to back into the post.

But... to be honest... I'd take Bledsoe and Bradley.

They're both good in stealing the ball and defending. But I think Rondo has a slight advantage because of his long arms and he's better in rebounding.
