    Historically, I wonder where he stacks up to all-time great defensive centers. It's hard to gauge because the eras are so different, but has he joined the ranks of Olajuwon, Russell, Mutombo, Wallace, Robinson, etc.?
    I absolutely think he has.

    I do agree that there may be some voter fatigue at some point but I honestly don't see how he ends up with less than 4 for his career. And look at Simmons for example....he has 2 other guys on his team that made the all defensive team. Gobert has absolutely nobody on that level and still leads a top defense every single year. And stats don't fully describe his impact on that end of the floor.

    Itís almost like the guys playing those positions are able to impact the game more

    Everyone gets it. Even the voters who appropriately usually vote for a center or QB.

    No one thinks Deke was a better one on one defender than Bruce Bowen. No thought he could defend a wider variety of players. Everyone knew he a more impactful defender bc of what he did in the paint. Thatís why everyone votes for Deke
