All-NBA Defensive First Team Announced


This is Green's first time making an All-Defensive Team.

Davis is joined on the second team by Oklahoma City's Andre Roberson, Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo, Memphis's Tony Allen and San Antonio's Danny Green. Roberson is a 2010 Wagner High School graduate.

The Rockets had a chance for a big night on Monday at the first NBA Awards show, with James Harden a finalist for MVP and Mike D'Antoni a finalist for Coach of the Year.

Fair or not, voter fatigue may also help Green get the upper hand this year. He added a sixth consecutive season to that accomplishment on Monday. He was one of only three players to finish the season with at least 130 steals and 50 blocks.

McGruder made 65 starts as a rookie and averaged 6.4 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists for Miami.

Green, who helped the Warriors take their second National Basketball Association crown in 3 seasons, was a near unanimous pick with 99 first-team votes. He shot.379 (118-311) from beyond the arc. This past season, Green was the unquestioned leader of the Warriors' second-ranked defense during the regular season. The other three are George Gervin, Robinson and Duncan. San Antonio Spurs' star Kawhi Leonard finished third (182 points).

Green led the league in steals with an average of 2.03 per game in earning his third straight selection to the first team. He understood every team's playbook and broke up every set from the beginning of the season to the NBA Finals.

It's Green at his best, showing both his ability to guard every player on the floor without hesitation but also his knowledge of when and how to do it.
