Last year, these 3 players are often compared to each other (except Antetokounmpo).
Kawhi has always been on the top because he is the best defender amongst other small forwards, but how would you rank Paul George, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jimmy Butler?

Giannis and George are in the better positions, because they are the best players in the Bucks and the Pacers.
Do we all agree that Kawhi is the best defender here? Who is the best offensive player? Many fans will said is Paul George, but he scores only 20 points per game. He is the best player in the Indiana, but he still can't reach his full potential.
Who would you select for your franchise? Giannis is hot now and maybe best prospect amongst them, but I would select Kawhi Leonard because he is the best two-way player in the league.
