Default Dwight Howard wins defensive player of the year again. Voting results inside

Complete voting results here: http://www.insidehoops.com/nba-defen...-history.shtml

Dwight Howard has won his second straight NBA defensive player of the year award after becoming the only player to lead the league in blocks and rebounds in the same season twice -- let alone in consecutive years.

Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy and players confirmed the All-Star center will accept the award at a news conference Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET.

Well deserved, can only applaud him. Looks really good after his game 1 vs Charlotte.

I don't see another player that could possibly take this away from him for many years to come.

just about every educated cav fan (you can't hold PleaseBelieve and similar posters against us) have been saying that. Lebron can be great defender but he only does it in spurts. He gets highlight chase-down blocks, but for the most part he eases up on man d to play passing lanes and get those blocks.

Dwight is able to anchor an teams D and that why he's a 2x DPoY. props to him. there simply was no need to bring Lebron into this thread

And Dwight can become an even better defensive player. He struggled with foul trouble a lot early in the season and generally looked unfocused at the start of the season.

Well deserved. Best defender in the league and it's not close.

How many DPOYs will he win ? I don't see him losing one in the next few years.

Yeah. He doesn't even deserve to be on the All Defensive 1st team this year. 2nd team ? I'm not even sure.

Cavs fans soon to claim? You're just a hater. No one stated Lebron will finish first in the DPOY. I don't know why you're making up such BS.
