I've never seen the actual voting (writers name associated with vote) for an award before. Is this new?

PJ Tucker is the best choice ever.


DeAndre Jordan has no business in third place, and LeBron has no business there either. DeAndre Jordan is the same thing than Ibaka on previous years (ironically, Ibaka finally was really a great defender this year, and did worse in the voting, and LeBron is kinda like Kobe on 2012, but maybe even worse. LeBron not only wasn't elite on defense, he was just bad... but there he is, and he'll probably even be an All-Defensive First Team.

Glad for Noah, who I do think did a great job. Also glad for Hibbert, who even with all the hate he's getting (it is true he is VERY bad on offense and a bad rebounder), he's still an impressive defensive player. No one's better than him in the paint.

He's the best team defender in the NBA for some time ... the multiple efforts , the way he can help and quickly recover to his man AND the way he can stay with perimeter players on pnr switches are unmatched imo

There is how the voting broke down.


Sad to see Hubie's 2nd and third choices ...

I'm not a fan of this award as I'm of the opinion that Defense is a team aspect of the game not an individual one. With that said Noah is deserving of recognition for the things he does that aren't Sportscenter highlights.

Very well-deserved. Congrats Joakim Noah

Would love and wish to have a player like him on my team.

The guy from the Bay Area that voted for Andrew Bogut and the guy who voted for PJ Tucker from KTAR Radio in Phoenix should have their votes taken away. :man11:

Most of the guys here in PHX on the radio are drunk at work….. no joke….. most have had DUI's after their show. Even Tom Chambers, Suns commentator, got pinched a few months ago…… :man10:
