    Not bad, but how in the hell does Curry get more votes than Marcus Smart?

    This.
    Basketball is like war in that offensive weapons are developed first, and it always takes a while for the defense to catch up.

    I feel like Chris Paul and Jimmy Butler got on these lists off of reputation alone.

    Is CP3 still defending at that level anymore? I dont understand the criteria. Is he better than someone like Tony Allen?

    The problem is the criteria from voter to voter is vastly different.

    Some vote on bulk blocks/steals.
    Some vote on PER blocks/steals.
    Some vote on opponent averages.
    Some use advanced stats.

    It's why you get such a wide range of players garnering votes.

    How do you think Boston almost won 50 games this season? Their defense was elite... between Smart/Bradley/Crowder they might have had the best perimeter defense in the league.

    Bradley is a beast on the defensive end.
