Ben Simmons gave his list of top 5 defenders in the NBA, which included preferring Anthony Davis over Rudy Gobert.

"I look at (Los Angeles Lakers big man Anthony Davis). I think like he’s a better defender than Gobert, ’cause he can defend, like, guards at times," said Simmons on a recent stream with Duane Jackson, the director of eSports development for SLAM.

"I play ball. I’m lookin’ at guys who can guard 1-5, man," added Simmons.

Simmons' list of top 5 defenders in the NBA included himself, Davis, Patrick Beverley, Kawhi Leonard, and Joel Embiid.
