Defensively Wall is one of the best and as far as breaking down the defense and finding teammates goes he is as good if not better than Westbrook. What doesn't show up on the statsheet is his dynamic presence, every time he is on the court the opposing team has trouble containing his drives, which leads to open shots for everyone. He has an impact on the court matched only by Westbrook/Rose.

Curry/Irving can get hot and win you a game on offense, but they are not anything special defensively or at controlling the flow of the game. Wall controls the pace and dominates if not gameplanned correctly.

Since the all star break deron has upped his play big time. He's finally found a groove and has been playing right there where he should be. basically right there with Westbrook not fourth. Cp3 has been off and on, not sure how you seen him ahead of deron.

Parker has been missing games left and right since the all star and hasnt nearly been as strong as he was in the first half.

And curry has been phenomenal since the break. He's more than just an honorable mention. I know you hate the warriors but don't let that blind your judgement.

Wall is good though. Battled injuries earlier but is playing to his potential. Should easily be a top five pg. but as far as him leading the wizards to a winning record in comparison to Irving.....well wizards are overall a much better team.
