  • Kobe Bryant? They’re kidding me… but I see a pattern, maybe the guys on the 1st team are the ones who sell more jerseys, right?

  • Wow, I’ve never seen so many superstars on the first team…..
    Clearly the NBA is going in a different direction on this.

  • I don’t think Kobe’s really a first teamer anymore. He might have been once upon a time… but not anymore.

    Generally a joke…. Kobe, and CP3 dont belong on first team, they just are because of their names, same could be said about KG, who is a great defensive player, but didnt have a great year
    Id actually take the 2nd team defense. also perk was robbed, he deserves it more then anyone on the celtics

  • How about Howard… I would be a defensive mvp too if they whistled fouls on every attacking player near me. This is supposed to be an award for defensive specialists, and instead the league turned it into just another superstar parade. Way to promote marketing AND ruin things!

    I agree w Baron, I take that 2nd team ANY day for defense. Pretty much everyone on that first team is a good help defenders.

    Next year, if Perk gets more weak side blocks by cheating off his man and shows up at the dunk contest wearing a superhero costume and gives himself a lofty nickname, he might give Dwight Howard a run for First Team.
