Looks pretty legit to me. Except for the All NBA 2nd and 3rd team, I might switch KG and Pau just cause Pau has been healthier.

I pretty much agree.

I was a little bit shaky about putting Yao on the 2nd team due to the media. Perkins might get in.

Doubt it. ^ Yao will take that spot over Perkins.

Well It also depends if Duncan is considered a Center or not too. Yao is not very loved in the media say like a Dwight Howard or a LeBron James.

It's all reputation really.

Why should I post just to say I agree?

I think on the defensive teams it's probably far more likely to see Artest switched with KG. I think they'll go for the true SF unless the 2nd PF is very very dominating (which KG hasn't been able to show with the injury).

They don't list these teams by position, they list them as guards and forwards. KG has had the better year defensively than Artest easily. Artest's defense actually hasn't been that good, however it is All-Defensive 2nd team at best.

People either agree with your list or don't care what you have to say. Given your history of posting, I'd say more lean toward the latter.

That's a pretty good point, not sure how the media thinks of that. If you ask me the Celtics' MVP this season has been Ray Allen. However, he clearly will not get that credit that Pierce, KG or even Rondo gets.

It wouldn't be surprise me though, Good Eye.

take it from a knicks fan. David lee = ZERO defence...i love the guy to death and i hope we never trade him..but he won't be winning any defensive awards anytime soon

i dont this KG has done enough this season to be in the defensive team. hes a great defensive player but his time off with injuries has hurt his chances. i wouldnt be surprised if the defensive team and all nba first team were the same players.

Camby has been injuried all season long, no way he gets all-defensive team. His rebounds don't even show on ESPN anymore because he's not qualified.

Yao is the only defensive center that gets enough attention and has been playing amazing defense. He should get the award clearly.

I agree with most of the teams, however I think LeBron will land on the first defensive team as well. He's gotten a ton better at D, and also a lot of press about his defense.

Iggy has to be a first teamer defensively

It's based on reputation anyways, Yao is the only one I am iffy about because he might not get there due to reputation.

Yea it is, but does Iggy have enough rep? Yao can go either way, hes one of the few guys in the league that can be a huge asset defensively yet have to be pulled out at the end of close games because hes also a huge liability.

I agree with most, except KG won't make 1st team defense with an injury. Probably go to Artest or LeBron even.

pretty much the bolds are the ones i'd switch around. maybe i might consider dirk for 2nd all nba instead of pau but either or is great. dont think kg should be as high as he is because of the injury.

honestly, kobe should be all first defensive team. kobe only plays d when he feels like it. id give the nudge to cp3 instead.

I think Iguodala should make the 2nd team. he doesnt have the big name of other people but he plays great defense night in and night out while putting up 18 6 5 and 2 steals to boot

I don't think he does have enough rep. Especially when he's up against Artest, Battier, LeBron, Duncan and KG.

Yao can be a liability in the end, but he can also be helpful. Another defensive limited player like Yao would be like Shaq or even Patrick Ewing. They were slow similar to Yao, though they were much more athletic they were limited on defense just like he is.
