Derrick White definitely deserves some more love. When he starts next season, he will. Still, this season he had a tremendous positive impact on defense.

Kawhi on the second team shows these voters have no idea.. Kawhi was not a defensive stalwart this year at all.. He focused far more on offense and rested games come on..

Wow. Position-wise it is a mess.
Kawhi Leonard and Patrick Beverley should be on first team instead of Ben Simmons and Rudy Gobert. Anthony Davis moved to center position where he belongs.
