Default Defensive player of the year so far

Usually a clear cut winner is in the forefront at about this time of the year.

Not this time.

So who's your pick if you had to pick now.

Maybe Bruce Bowen for the sole fact that he has never won it. He should've won it at least once.

That dirty ****er

he's been quite bad this year, and not even the best defender on the team, i think Tim Duncan has a good chance to win it, as does Josh Smith maybe.

Tim Duncan is quietly anchoring the best defensive team in the league again this year. If anyone has watched the Spurs this year, you'd realize how valueble Duncan is. Bruce Bowen has been utter trash.

What about Marcus Camby?

He leads the league in blocks (i think), he plays great help and weakside defense. He has to be in the conversation.

Co-sign

Can anyone really point out one great defensive player.. this might actually be one of the toughest DPOY races ever.

I forgot Timmy D...he should runaway with it. Hands down. He's played the same brilliant d all year and hasn't missed a game.

Josh Smith a close second

Camby's stats are worthy but a bit inflated due to the high pace the Nuggets play. If he is so valuble, they why are the Nuggets such a terrible defensive team?

good on me then huh?

Do you think any other players could be considered though, bcoz for some strange reason I dont see Tim Duncan winning it, and 'analysts' will most likley think up about 100 about why Josh Smith shouldn't win it.

finally someone who says it, if you are so good deffensivelly why your team sucks at it ? "but its a team game and his teammates suck" whatever, if you are the best defender in the league you'll make a defensive impact anywhere, period, last year when the kings got artest they allowed around 7-8 less ppg than before they got him, and lower fg% too, i think it's duncan this year, he anchors the best D in the league and rebounds and blocks shots well.

So Duncan should "runaway with it. Hands down" yet Josh Smith is a "close" second??? how does that work? j/p

I think Duncan is deserving.

I think Shane Battier will finally get his due and make the all defense team.

artest's defense is overrated imo, and i'm a kings fan. more of it is just hustle and effort rather than defense, although he is a great defender.
