Paul being a very good defender is way overstated. Advanced stats and everything pretty much show that defense from the PG position has very very little effect on the team defense.
I'd like to see some actual evidence of that. Even if that IS the case, I would still think that it is a good thing to have a good individual defender as your PG.
A good defense is anchored by a big man. Do you think Horford or Gortat are defensive anchors?
Neither one of them is Dwight Howard or Hakeem Olajuwon, but they are both SOLID defenders. I would also argue that two strong defensive players playing next to one another actually makes both of them better than they are individually.
