nonsense, if you are a great defender you'll make a defensive impact no matter how much the team sucks, look at the kings with artest last year, i hope camby doesnt win it, he is the most overrated defensive Pos in the league, going up for a block against midgits who aren't afraid to drive to him is far from impressive, better give it to alonzo mourning, look at how much shots he blocks in the minutes he plays.
Camby is overrated, and Bill Walton pointing this out in a game a few weeks ago made me fully realize it. His stats do lie (although it's still true that "ball don't lie"). He's a help defender that only helps out his teammates about 40-50% of the time. He only has an interest in grabbing boards, and never steps out to challenge a shot that's outside of the restricted area. He should be averaging Rodman-type numbers in rebounds the way he plays for them. I've never seen a player steal so many from his own teammates - he must have a rebounding bonus clause in his contract.

I think it's a close race between Emeka Okafor and Tim Duncana right now. Duncan has the advantage, soley because the Spurs are the defensive team they've always been, but we'll see how these last, what, 18 games play out.
