Default Better defender: Duncan or KG?

Who is the better defender? Career/Prime and peak/best? They both were PFs and played around the same times.


Me

Career- Duncan
Peak- KG

Kevin Garnett is a better defensive leader and a more versatile defender. Kevin Garnett's defensive impact > Tim Duncan's defensive impact.

A past his peak Kevin Garnett instantly turned the Boston Celtics into the best defensive team in the league.

Duncan

I remember him averaging like 4+ blocks per game one season (or was it during a playoff series). KG is more of a team defender whereas Timmy is both a team defender and also 1v1.

Duncan. KG can defend SFs and whatnot (I'll say slightly above average at that), but Timmy can defend centers and PFs as good/better than anyone in his era. KG could never defend centers, and was decent at defending PFs.

KG isn't really a great man defender. He's great at coming in on the weak side for help defense. Sort of like Serge Ibaka, only KG is a better man defender than Ibaka. Timmy can stop bigs by himself, and is a great help defender.

Tim Duncan easily. KG being able to defend a SF is more of a luxury than a neccessity. It does not put him above Duncan simply because he can do something no sane coach would have one of his 7 footers do very often.

The question is not who is the better defender.






































It's who is the better fisherman?

Give me Duncan, he was such a dominant force defensively around 2003. Elite shot blocker who didn't bite on many fakes, could guard either PF or C well and didn't really have a weakness defensively.

This, im taking Garnett because he was better at protecting the paint. Duncan was beter defending around the rim but I think that's got more to do with Garnett in Minny having to be ALL over the floor defensively for the team

Duncan is so boring and almost never screams, there's no way he could be as good a defender as KG.

KG is better at the defender at the PF position. Duncan is better at the C position, which should have been his natural position.
