Harden, yes of course.
Ellis is past is prime, and don't defend more than DD.
Afflalo, i think he is at the same mevel as DD. maybe he was a better defender at one time, but not too much difference ight now.
ok, how thompson is better than DD ? the only good thing about thompson is his 3pt shooting. and if curry don't open the floor for him to shoot what do you have ?
stephenson, i heard he was more of a SF than a sg. at 6'8 it's not surprising, even if he play the position of SG. the fact is that indy as 3 good SF 'PG, LS, DG) but yeah, he has a more impact on team resultat than DD.
Matthews has a pretty good year and i would say he is better than DD.
Bryant, for sure he is better. like Jordan is still better than DD i suppose.
as for dragic, PHX play two pg in their starter unit like us yesterday. it don't make vasuqez a sg.
Hayward is good but at 6"8.5 the guy is a sf. he play PF at college level.
just fair to say that DD is a top 5 not the best, just that he is a top 5, even if you put him as the 5th.
he is with Harden the only sg whom made it in the MVP ladder this season. so i think is PIE was pretty good at that time.
so here is my top 5 at this time of the season :
