Default Dwyane Wade Defensive player of the year

Is there any question that wade has been the best defensive player in the league this year?.....If he doesnt get this award it would be a huge robbery

Dwayne Wade had just start playing great defense since the All Star Break, while Dwight was doing it since the beginning of the season

This is probably the easiest of all of the awards to pick.. Dwight's running away with it again.

Here's the problem with giving wade defensive player.
He sucked the first half of the year on defense. He also is just inconsistent from play and play.

DWade doesn't deserve it this year. But he's had years that totally trump anything Kobe every did defensively., where Wade deserved first defensive teams selections instead of 2nd team selections.

In fact, when you look at overall defensive synergy numbers, Wade had 3 defensive seasons that Kobe didn't come close to having even one of in his career.

These awards are given more for popularity and the market the team is in rather than true performance by the players.

wade is a better steals man and shot blocker than kobe has ever been, but Bryant has better raw and fundamental defesnive skills and technique than wade. Bryant does a better jon of moving his feet and getting low. I love watching lakers playofff games which is where Bryant plays defese in the latter parts of his career. Wade moves his feet well, but plays defensive with his hands more than kobe does to make up for the lakc of th technique thaat kobe has

The defensive synergy numbers take everything into account. For instance, Isolation defense - Wade has had 3 seasons where his matchups have only shot 27%-28% on him.

Kobe has not come close to being under 30% for his matchups in isolation D. Wade is extremely crafty on man D too.

When you take EVERYTHING into account, all the defensive categories for synergy (and there's about 10 categories there breaking everything down as it's very precise), Wade has had overall synergy scores in 3 seasons that Kobe has not had even one season of.

And the only season where Kobe has had a clear advantage over Wade was Wade's rookie season when he was new into the league (and even then Wade's overall synergy score was only 1.5% behind kobe).

Wade beats him in every other season in the other 7 years except for one year where they were basically tied.

So Wade for 6 seasons has been better. Tied one season. And Kobe was only better in one season when Wade was a rookie.

FACT
