Default What if all of a sudden everyone was a good defender

Suppose this year everyone trained hard on defense OR got some magical defensive potion.

Everyone's defense increased by a large %. So EVERYONE in the league was a "Good" Defender.

Would our definition of a good defender change? Or would we call everyone a good defender. So will we only still call the "best" Great Defenders, or many Great Defenders...

if that happened then good would become average, great would become good, and there still wouldn't be anyone vaguely comprably to hakeem and robinson.

Everyone in the nba is a good defender just the standard offensive play is so high they are made to look bad.

If everyone became a "good" defender, and every team in the league started to play good team defense, you'd still hear people say that defense use to be better in the 60s, 70s, and 80s... I doubt it would do anything to change people's bias...

You'd have a Suns-Raptors NBA Finals if that were the case.
