If you have to pick one of them who would you pick?? Both are excellent defenders and are able to shoot from downtown.

I dunno...long term I'd take Battier since Bowen is much older. But I think Bowen is a better perimeter defender and can defend the Kobe's, T-Mac's, etc... better than Battier can. It's close though.

i picked Battier coz i like his length and his ability to alter shots

and he's not a dirty defender

I'll take Battier. He's the better all-around player. A better rebounder, a better scorer, and a little younger. I do think Bowen is still the better defender however.

Battier...look what he did against Kobe in their game when Houston was on their 22 game win streak. Now...look at what Bowen is doing night in and night out in these playoffs against Kobe.

Right now, I'd have to take Bowen due to his experience. But if I were building a team, I'd be more likely to take Battier.

Battier's going to win this poll because he is a more likable player. But just because Bowen may be dirty, doesn't mean that he's not a great defender. Battier flops a lot as well, so it can go both ways. Bowen is the better defender, but Battier is the better all-around player.

I think Bowen is the better defender, but Battier is a better overall scorer then Bowen.

Everyone seems to forget that Bowen held Kobe to like 18 points in their first meeting of the season

Battier is not only a better shoter and scorer he is also a better defender

Bowen is a much better defender overall...and Battier is a less reliable 3 point shooter IMO....I'll take Bowen only by a hair because Battier is a better offensive player....but Bowen has it on D and 3 point shooting....

I think Bowen is more of a guy who gets under peoples skin, but I like Battier in this match up because he is that "Nice Guy" who you really cant get mad at, but he is so darn good defensively. Its like the guy who waves and smiles at you after he cuts your off on the road.
