Terrible logic. The coaches have traditionally included a SF on their ballots, and LeBron has the position locked up because there is no competition at SF.
Meanwhile, we have great defensive Centers in the league such as Gasol, Noah, Howard, etc. who all play the same position and thus the coaches votes are split between the 3.
All 3 are better, more valuable defenders than LeBron James yet receive less votes because they're going up against each other in the voting process while LeBron is going up against... no one.
