John Wall's response to not making either NBA All-Defensive Team: 'Lol'

NBA announced All-Defensive Teams

Davis averaged 2.2 blocks per game this season to go with his career-best 28 points 11.8 rebound average.

After finishing second for two straight years, Draymond Green claimed the 2017 NBA Defensive Player-of-the-Year Award at the first NBA Awards Show Monday in NY.

Having already won an NBA Championship with the San Antonio Spurs back in 2013, former UNC standout Danny Green received the first individual honor of his eight-year pro career on Monday.

Green finished third on the team with 71 steals, behind Manu Ginobili (82).

Green is the second guard in Spurs history to make an All-NBA Defensive team.

But as the league announced its first and second teams of top defenders, the Washington Wizards star was nowhere to be found.

Green finished second to Leonard in DPOY voting each of the last two seasons, but this year the tables were turned and Leonard finished behind Green in the voting.


Chris #Paul and Patrick Beverley made the NBA All-Defensive First Team as backcourt players.

On the season, Wall averaged 2 steals and 0.6 blocks per game. He garnered the eight most votes in the league. He's the fourth Rockets player in franchise history to earn First Team All-Defense honors, but the first since Scottie Pippen in 1999.

National Basketball Association will give out regular-season awards today and for the first time in league's history, it will happen during a special show.

Green was a decisive victor, receiving 73 of the 100 first place votes and a whopping 434 total points.

Saric's Sixers team-mate Joel Embiid, Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield and New York Knicks center Willy Hernangomez were also voted First Team.

No player was more important to a team on the defensive side of the floor than Green, even though Utah's Gobert may have had better raw numbers.
