Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young is known for being a prolific scorer less than two seasons into his NBA career.

With all of the down time due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Young is interacting with fans more on Twitter.

He was asked who the top three defenders in the NBA are and mentioned Warriors guard Klay Thompson as one of them.

Thompson routinely guards the other team’s best players, and Young experienced just how good Klay is on the defensive end when he was held to just four points on 2-for-12 shooting in their first meeting of the 2018-19 season.

Who do you think are the top 3 defensive players in the NBA?
