    I would...

    If I already had AD, LBJ, and Kawhi

    Meh. I'd still take him. AD at the 5, KD at the 4, LBJ at the 3, Kwahi at the 2.

    Add Jrue at point guard, and even with me as head coach, we'd still win 50 plus games.

    You could put a cardboard cutout of yourself up there and still win 50+

    I mean, I was purposely being a little tongue in cheek, but only half-way. I genuinely do think there are arguments for both Kawhi and AD at their best over KD, and I don't think I need to spell out why LBJ is better.
    Watching Pelicans games is what Georges Bataille meant by limit experiences.

    Im not even sure KD is as good as 4th. Id take some different players over him though.

    Oh wow, now that's a surprise. Who would you take over KD, I'm curious?

    For sure, for all we know he could come back and be a shell of himself, or he could comeback and have an MVP season. Have to wait and see, really.

    Realistically, I think that just as there are arguments for KD (pure scoring ability, especially with efficiency, solid all around game), there are also arguments for AD (best big man in the league, best rim protector in the league, top 3 two-way player, elite scorer), and there are for Kawhi too (league's best perimeter defender by far, efficient and capable scorer, capable of totally erasing an opposing superstar), but I'm not really too mad whichever order you have them in. If you want KD as 2nd, or as 4th, I think either is justifiable.

    So you wouldn’t put KD as a 2 way player ? But I agree it is interchangeable... I would put KD second and AD third

    He is, but his defense is not as good as either Kawhi or AD's. It's still good, and he is a good defender, I'm not trying to say he isn't, but Kawhi is simply the best perimeter defender in the league without question, and AD might be the most versatile defender the league has seen in years.
