LeBron James on Anthony Davis tonight: "That’s why he’s the Defensive Player of the Year.”
Of course, AD was voted 2nd in DPOY voting (Giannis), but LeBron, Vogel, etc. felt he was the best player on that end.
Davis was +17 tonight. Next highest Lakers were KCP and Rondo with +8’s.
He was everywhere defensively: stopping Butler at the rim, contesting Herro and Robinson on the perimeter, helping on Bam and Crowder. DPOY stuff.
How AD didn't win DPOY is beyond me.
AD showing the world what a REAL DPOY looks like!!! Carry on...
DPOY level defense by the Brow tonight 🔒
Quand tu mets en prison Butler puis que tu repenses au fait que celui qui t’as volé le DPOY n’a même pas daigné défendre sur lui quand il le fallait. https://t.co/rzrMdKdLiN
Anthony Davis putting the clamps on Jimmy Butler in the 4th mean while this is what yalls DPOY said about girding him. https://t.co/Zkf83OyE54

LeBron à propos d'Anthony Davis : 💬 "C'est la raison pour laquelle il est le défenseur de l'année."
Giannis va apprécier... 😬
This Finals has been a good example of why we should have full season awards on top of regular season awards, cause this playoff run has presented pretty strong cases for LeBron to be season MVP and AD to be DPOY with the body of work from the past month-plus.
Thoughts on last night games (Oct 6)
- 3 - 1 LA lead. The difference maker was AD defending Jimmy in the 2nd half. More reason why I felt he should have been DPOY this year. He didn't let the switch happen up top, protected the rim and on offense, knocked some big shots
They really didnt give that DPOY to AD
Kobe est plus impressionnant mais Duncan est plus affûté. Duncan méritait des DPoY mais la NBA valorise le spectacle sur l’efficacité, au poste bas personne passait face à Duncan.
mais completo? Jordan conseguia ser MVP e DPOY no mesmo ano kkkkkkkkkk, sou fã do Lebron, mas não dá pra ele nessa discussão
Duncan na jamais été DPOY. Dans ce qu'il sait faire de mieux y avait meilleur que lui. Si il a bcp de titre c grace au collectif mis en place par Popovitch y a pas un truc quil fait mieux que Kobe qui est bien plus impressionnant ds son jeu
I mean you put Giannis and Lebron together. I’m sure his stats would be crazy to. Giannis just won back to back mvp and a dpoy. With bums on his team. I’m sorry but AD is not better. He is more skilled tho!
I love #MeganRapinone but there’s a way to enjoy the win without disrespecting @CandaceParker who showed good sportsmanship and congratulated the team. Candace deserved DPOY and got it, end of story. If Clark wants the award, tell her to work harder next season #WNBA
