NBA Ball: Rank these Up and Coming NBA Small Forwards

Between Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, Michael-Kidd-Gilchrist, Alex Poythress who do you see being the best in 5 years both offensively and defensively? Will any of them be 1st team all NBA defenders? Besides Paul George do any of them have all star potential or just role players? What are there potentials?

I don't see Alex Poythress as

I don't see Alex Poythress as a full time small forward; if you put him in might as well go all the way and put Wiggins,Parker, and Vonleh in.

Now: 1. Paul George 2. Kawhi

Now:
1. Paul George
2. Kawhi Leonard
3. MKG
4. Alex Poythress

5years:
1. Paul George
2. MKG
3. Kawhi Leonard
4. Alex Poythress

George will be the best offensively in terms of scoring, however MKG wil be the best all-around player on offense of the 4. I see both of them with multiple All-Star berths and I see Leonard as a border line All-Star that make get into 1-2 for being effective on a winning team.
MKG will be the best defender followed very closely by George. I can see George with better numbers, but doesn't mean he will be the better defender.
Poythress will be a 3-4 sorta like Thad Young I feel.

Poythress perimeter game may

Poythress perimeter game may be WIP but not his jumpshot. He will be a knockdown shooter. His problem is his motor and I think thats more mental than anything with him. He may not ever be able to get his head right so he can be in beast mode the whole game. Doesnt have a mean streak. If he did, he could be the best out of all these guys. I agree with Festar on 5 years from now.
