This. If Dwight doesn't get hurt, he probably wins it again. However there's not much issue with Chandler winning it. There would have been if Ibaka had won it though, for although he is a outstanding shot blocker, he's an average to below average man defender.

Someone remind me, is DPOY voted by the media or coaches?
