I'd go for Kawhi, not only does he make his opposing counter part work on offense, he makes them work back on defense.
The GM went on to raise an interesting statistical argument: Let's say Bowen defends the other team's top scorer each night, and that the scorer attempts 20 shots per game. If Bowen actively contests half those shots, he's looking at 820 times per season (10 shots x 82 games) where he's flying out at his man trying to get a hand in his face. Over the span of five years, that's 4,100 plays.
"How many times has he been accused of [sticking his foot underneath] over that time span? Four or five? Out of [4,000] plays?," the GM notes. "When you look at it like that, it doesn't seem like it's intentional."

Nag uumpisa pa lang naman mag beastmode si Kawhi,
hintayin muna natin ng ilang taon bago natin sila ikumpara.
Pero ang swerte ng mga players ngayon, di nila inabutan si Bowen, malamang iiyak sila haha..
l can only imagine how he will go into Harden's head..
Kahit si Steph siguro masisira ang diskarte sa kanya.

Haha ewan ko kung kaya ni Bowen pero sinira na ni Kawhi si Curry panoorin mo yung spurs vs warriors regular season game last april ata nagulat ako dahil best ball handler and shooter si curry ngayon pero kung agawan ni kawhi walang ka effort effort frustrated si curry hindi siya maka iscore kay Kawhi.
Pero kung Harden vs Bowen tingin ko di kakayanin ni Bowen yun dahil Harden is combined finesse + power and has an insanely good footwork iiyak laterals ni Bowen dun baka ma foul out pa galing kasi magpasabit.

Bowen > Kawhi
though Bowen is kinda dirty defender

We haven't seen Kawhi's peak as a defender so mahirap icompare. Pero alot of sportswriters call him the greatest perimeter defender since Pippen. That's saying alot. I like that he has the length, strength and speed to match up with anyone in the perimeter. Plus, hindi agad kumakagat sa fakes. Lamang siguro sa kanya si Bowen in terms of dirty plays, pero baka matutunan nya yon later on.
