Who's your DPOTY?

Dwight Howard is out of the race.

Tyson Chandler? Twice in a row seems unlikely.

Noah will probably get a few votes.

Marc Gasol deserves consideration. Memphis is the second best defensive team, and it's not because of Randolph. But it could be because of ...

Tony Allen, the elite perimeter defender.

But I think one guy who's deserves serious consideration but won't is:
Roy Hibbert. Pacers are the best defensive team in the league. It's not because of David West or Lance Stephenson.

There isn't a clear cut winner. KG will probably win.
#3Kevin_KlobbPosted 1/10/2013 6:25:28 PM
Chris Paul

will win

The hype train is slowly gaining some steam
Carmelo Anthony is the best player in the NBA. Anthony Davis is a bust. Canada sucks. Go Knicks! Future 2013 NBA Champions

Crediting one player for a top defense is like crediting Rondo for running a good offense
Waiters gonna wait

Lebron or Allen(if Memphis can get a top 2 seed in the West, I hope he can have enough popularity)

Tyson Chandler because I'm a homer.
#7KrodisPosted 1/10/2013 6:30:33 PM
Hibbert and Gasol seem like good bets, but they do have good perimeter defenders on their team. Larry Sanders I think would be a great candidate if he could stay on the floor some more. Garnett is a very good candidate as well.

Go Tar Heels/Scarlet Knights/Blue Hens, Panthers, Diamondbacks, Thunder! (Mish-mash of teams!)

Gasol or Allen right now.
