Pretty sure Asik has the best defensive rating, followed by Howard.

I feel stupid forgetting Luol Deng. He's not the best defender in the league this season, but he is worth being on the team and it just confirms, beyond any question, that Serge Ibaka will NOT make the All-Defensive Team. And he shouldn't. He has no chance.



I actually think Lebron's defense has been down the last few weeks. Not down, but not as high as before. I don't think he's taken it to any new level and I could make a very good case of him not being on either of the 1st 2 teams. Luol Deng, Josh Smith, Andre Iguodala, Shawn Marion...that's rough.




Should add that I believe the NBA has an obligation to make an All-Defensive Third Team and that Serge Ibaka will not make that team either...and again, rightfully so.

Arguable, but I can't make the case that Deng or Marion or Smith or Iguodala are playing better? I certainly can.

I dont know if Ibaka can get it,but i hope Howards not gonna win it by default again.For sure he's a great defender but watchin Magic games it doesnt feel like he's head and shoulders above everyone else in the league.There are a lot of good defenders deserving some recognition.
