    Default Tyson Chandler Named to SECOND team ALL-DEFENSE

    How does this happen exactly, can someone fill me in? How do you win Defensive Player of the Year, yet your NOT on the (1st) ALL-DEFENSIVE TEAM?

    either these coaches voting are blind or Stern is trolling... seriously if your DPOY you should automatically be on the first team smh congrats to Tyson anyway

    lol at this. Its a total joke, seriously. I have never heard of the DPoY being named to the second all NBA team. If anything DH12 should be on the second team. Tyson is probably livid.

    Kobe being on it is an absolute joke, just disgusting that he keeps getting these all defensive team nba awards when he hasnt deserved them the past 2 years SMFH. Now when some kid looks back and see's Kobe has as many all nba defensive teams as Jordan they're going to think he was his equal on the defensive end which is complete BS. Also this stuff is based too much on stats,just because someone has alot of steals or blocks does not make them a great defender.

    ^^

    Agreed in todays NBA numbers are so inflated that every award is based off of who has the best numbers.

    Tyson was the best defender in the NBA this year evidence you ask, he won Defensive Player of the Year yet he was voted the 2nd Best Defensive Center

    Probably wouldn't have happened if the same people voted for both awards. My guess is the players and coaches vote for the all D teams and the writers vote for DPOY.

    Just looked it up the dpoy award is voted on by 121 writers and broadcasters. The all d team is voted on by the 30 coaches.

    so 30 coaching oversaw the fact that Tyson was the DPoY? So they go on and vote Dwight on the first team?

    are the coaches trolling or what?

    No, Tyson barely won.

    Ibaka was the consensus winner, but the media went in a different direction.
