    Marc Gasol to be named DPOY

    Chris Vernon @ChrisVernonShow
    I was just told that Marc Gasol will be named NBA Defensive Player of Year
    Can't say it wasn't deserving... Was hoping Timmy got it, (but knew he probably wouldn't, thought he was deserving as well) but can't be mad at this. Props to MG

    I thought Noah/LeBron/George had a legit shot to win it.
    Oh well, congrats to Big Marc

    I'm 100% fine with this.

    anchored the league's best (or second best) defense. insanely impressive on/off numbers.

    Nice. Wonder if a backcourt player will win one any time soon.

    Awesome, absolutely awesome.

    Casual fans will not understand this decision at all, given he isn't an elite rebounder/shot-blocker (good but not great), and the fact that a lot of fans just hate the Gasols, but no big man commands interior space better than him right now.

    Would be nice huh? Bowen never did which I still don't understand, Tony Allen get's overlooked, etc... Artest won it like 10 years ago, and Gary Payton in 95-96. Other than that, it's PF's and C's. (since GP won it)

    If Howard would've played defense the way he has for the last 30 games or so he would've been the DPOY easily

    Love him or hate him, call him overrated, a punk, chump, and whatever blasphemy you people speak, fact of the matter is there is no denying he's the best of his generation and will go down as a top 5 player ever...what he has done for the NBA is amazing he's the biggest name in basketball all around the world and his chase for number 6 continues! All that matters though to us Laker fans is #17! Lakersnation! #16to17

    Don't know if they've released that info yet, thought I'm sure he will be. people will vote for him cause he blocks a lot of shots
