    Great stuff for Kawhi.

    I feel like wing players winning this award is going to be more of a consistent thing. It's just much harder and rarer for big men to have to be as flexible defensively, which rewards guys like Leonard and Draymond.

    As the league tilts to shooting even more threes, the impact of big men defensively is going to go unnoticed.

    Money's greatest failure. Selecting a 6'9 offensive power forward over a defensive stud SF to play alongside Harden.

    Morey had a crystal ball in 2011 that he would get Harden a year later?

    On SF Bay Area radio yesterday, there was a hilarious exchange btwn Tom Tolbert and his guest, NBA reporter Marc Spears. They weren't salty about Draymond, by the way. They thought Kawhi was a solid winner.

    Tolbert was laughing that, now that votes are public, he could see that only one voter didn't have Kawhi on his ballot AT ALL.

    "Who is this guy, Bill Worrell? Bill. Worrell. Marc, have you heard of this guy?"

    "Naw man. Who is he with?"

    "Southwest something something. Just. What was he thinking?"

    "(laughing). It's harsh. It really is. Some people shouldn't be allowed to vote, and now this poor guy is hung out to dry in public like that. Just a shame."

    And the hits just keep on coming for Rockets-related embarrassment. LOL.

    Hahaha, Worrell put Antony Davis in 2nd and Trevor Ariza in 3rd.
