Its a close one, i gotta admit im not really sure who deserves it. I forgot to add Bruce Bowen to the list, i apologize to anyone who wouldve voted for him. Josh Smith did help the Hawks make the playoffs with his good defense and great shot blocking ability. Chris Paul played great defense for the Hornets and so did Kobe for the Lakers. Kobe finished 4th i believe in the vote for defensive player of the year.
Because of how great the celtics play defense as a team the entire team has to get credit. Its hard to determine who has the most impact but i will say ray allen is the worst defender in the celtics starting 5 not that hes bad but hes not garnett, peirce, rondo, or perkins.
If you go by stats Camby is the clear leader because of his rebounding and shot blocking.
This year for me at least its a tough call. Theres alotta players who i think are worthy of it.
