To show what it means to be on the all defensive teams. The last two years the guy that won the Defensive Player of the year did not even make the first team all defense. This year Gasol makes 2nd team, last year Chandler makes 2nd team. Please explain.
I am not sure without looking it up , maybe one is chosen by the coaches and one by the media but either way one of the awards is a joke IMO.
I tend to think its the all defensive teams that are the joke. Many guys have made it numerous times on their name alone. Kobe comes to mind for one. I think we had a guy make it one year that had no business on it either.
