Ultimately, they deserve to be pretty close in any GOAT rankings, but I would certainly take Hondo.
Pip was better defensively but not by much like some may think, Hondo was also an amazing defensive player. Passing and rebounding Pip is also a bit above and yes Hondo was the better scorer and more clutch.
