Cole Anthony believes that Orlando Magic teammate Jalen Suggs is the NBA’s best defensive guard (averaging 1.9 SPG).

(via Orlando Magic):

Reporter: “I wanted to get your take on Jalen Suggs. Obviously you guys kind of came in the league at the same time, just a year after you he came in. What have you seen from him and especially his growth defensively as a player?”

Anthony: “Oh man, that’s my young boy, man. He’s an All-Defensive talent. I think this year he could and should get All-Defensive recognition. He’s just such a unique defender. I’ve heard Moe [Wagner] say this before: he’s a combination of instincts, strength, speed, and just a quick twitch. He’s, in my opinion, the best guard defender in the league.”
