The NBA announced the 2014-15 All-Defensive teams on Wednesday, and Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard headlines the All-Defensive First Team.
Leonard received 116 first-place votes and got 242 points overall. Defensive Player of the Year runner-up Draymond Green finished with the second-most points, racking up 107 first-place votes and 229 points.
Mr. “First Team All Defense” himself Tony Allen finished third in the voting, while teammates DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul are the final two players on the All-Defensive First Team. Interestingly enough, the Los Angeles Clippers finished with a league average defense despite Jordan and Paul garnering these honors.
Anthony Davis headlines the All-Defensive Second Team. Davis is joined by Jimmy Butler, Andrew Bogut, John Wall and Tim Duncan. Noticeably absent is Rudy Gobert, who helped transform the Utah Jazz into the best defensive team in the league the second half of the season.
Here are the full voting results for the two teams. Countless other players received votes:
