Re: Should Dwight Howard have won 2011-12 Defensive Player of Year?
If it were up to me, KG would have gotten it every year since arriving in Boston. There is something about that team still being competitive that I have to credit to KG getting the *whole* team to be great defensively. Since being a Celtic, Ray Allen never was consistently good on offense... and Pierce's prime has been over for years. And KG wasn't even a top tier offensive player in his prime. Even though they've had 3 HOFers plus Rondo this whole time, that's never been why they've won. Those 3 HOFers have never really blown me away offensively. They win because of defense. And none of these guys were known for defense before KG.
