    Trevor's defense is underrated. He can lock up 1-4 and has been vital to what this team does on that side of the court.

    last game showed us how good DeAndre is defensively...Duncan schooled him like a little kid, and just because of athletism he made some blocks but his defense was really bad

    one game doesn't dictate what he does over the course of a season.

    I believe he only got 1 vote (Bill Worrell). Him finishing 2nd on Bill's ballot gave him the 3 points. So it's even sadder than you realize.

    We have such low expectations of our players and coach. So sad.

    Apparently you didn't see game 1 when Jordan shut down the paint. One game doesn't dictate an entire season.

    DeAndre Jordan and Anthony Davis getting votes is a joke.

    Jordan is a terrible man defender and Davis is not a good defender yet.

    I am fine with Leonard winning, but Green for the Warriors has probably been better.

    I second this, they only gifted with their athletism and nothing more.

    look at players like Marc Gasol or Joakim Noah, they are not gifted with athletism to block shots and touch the rim with their head....they worked much harder to be where they are and they are much more deserving to get points when it comes to rating defense

    DeAndre's defense is overrated, and his bbIQ is really questionable...just sayin

    definitely about noah and gasol, I love what they bring to the table defensively. but you don't just take away someones attributes and fault them for it. there are so many people who are athletic freaks that try to make the league. most of them don't
