    Sub par defender in space is giving him way too much credit. He was a poor defender, and dreadful in space.

    No, it’s too early to tell. Defensively he’s as bad as Bozo. Offensively, though different games, they’re fairly similar as well. So now, let’s see how Bogey plays in the playoffs. Bozo was huge at times.

    Bogey is almost serviceable. Boozer was bad defensively.

    I like Harpring, but I rate Bogey above him.

    He was as good as Bogey is, probably better. At least in the playoffs he was

    Jazz traded for a perennial all-star HOF player not even mentioned so far...

    Why would anyone mention a perennial all star the Jazz traded for?

    The thing I found most grating about Boozer is after watching him for 5 years I'm convinced his bad defense was due to a lack of effort rather than a lack of ability.

    You can't average a double/double if you're on the bench due to foul trouble - my guess is this notion was tattooed on the inside of Boozer's eyelids.

    Bogey is limited on defense but I don't think it's because a lack of effort.

    Boozer wasn't bad on defense, he was horrible. I'll never forget the time Mike Bibby took him one-on-one and made him look like an old man the way his feet got twisted. He had almost no lateral movement ability. So far as the list, it's too early to tell, but I think Boyan is as good or better than any of those players. No one, not even Memo could shoot like him.

    I made my list considering both player PEAK and LONGEVITY. I think most people would say Bogey this year has been better than peak Harpring (although I think Matt his first year was a similar quality player), but the longevity isn't even close. Hapring contributed for 7 years, 6 of them at a high level, during an important and successful period for the franchise.
