Dwight's got this shit locked up for the forseeable future. LeBron has the MVP locked up for the forseeable future. Every now and then they can trade places.

including last year... and the year before... need I go further?

how often have the two award winners played each other though besides 2007-08 and 2008-09.

Dirk Nowitzki didn't go against Marcus Camby in 06-07
Nash didn't meet up with Ben Wallace 04-06
KG didn't go against Artest in 03-04
Timmy didn't face B.Wallace from 2001-2003
and 2000, it wasn't possible because Mutumbo and AI played on the same team

Agreed, how the hell did guys like Kobe, Lebron, Kirilenko, Rondo and even Duncan(he's not that great of a defender anymore) get more votes than Perkins.

In my opinion, Perk is honestly the second or third best defender in the league. He's probably the best post defender, a very good shot blocker, good rebounder and tough in the paint. According to the voting he wasn't even the best defender on his team!

LeBron23: LeBron deserved DPOY. He blocks shots and steals the balls. Dwight will be good when he makes shots. They will count as 2 points and if he shoots far enough they will count as 3 points. LeBron won't care tho because he is a 2x MVP and 1x Finals MVP.

Dwight = 5 top player in league.

Anyway congrats to Dwight. He's a hell of a defensive player and can get better. Hopefully he wins his first ring this year.

Like to see a perimeter defender win it. Oh wait, the rules in the game today wont allow that.

I'm more interested in the players that got one vote. Who the **** is still voting Ben Wallace DPOY?

If Lebron wants to win a DPOY, I'm sure he could. Especially since Dwight has two DPOYs now, and these awards tend to be biased and they tend to favor players that have never won it before over players that have, for all the awards.

Josh Smith in second place. Nice to see him get some recognition in the voting.

The Hawks are too reliant on him though. Nothing frustrates me more than Smith contesting a shot inside and getting the block/ causing a miss with the other Hawks standing around watching. Sure enough an opposing player will get a follow up basket while the rest of the Hawks stand around flatfooted.

All-NBA 1st + DPOY? Pretty nice... that's what puts him above guys like Deke and Ben... but on the other hand, you could say that there were better centers back then... and you may be right. Still, I think he deserves props.

Lmao you gotta be joking me. LeBron isn't even a better defender then Dwyane Wade, never mind guys like Perkins, Josh Smith, Artest or Battier.

Uhhh, Wallace is a 4 time DPOY and was all-defensive first team every single time he won. Mutombo too is a 4 time DPOY and was all-defensive first team in three of those years.... I'm not claiming any one of these players is better than the other, but as defenders I don't see the separation you speak of. All three of these guys are/were some of the best defenders we've ever seen, but you got to respect winning not 1 or 2 defensive player of the years, but 4 of them, which is freaking intense and achieved by those two (big ben and deke) only.
