Draymond Inexperienced not a High 5 defensive participant within the NBA


Ballot: Draymond Inexperienced not a High 5 defensive participant within the NBA initially appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com

It seems Draymond Inexperienced is not very properly preferred by his fellow NBA gamers.

On Monday, The Athletic launched the outcomes of an nameless participant ballot. And the three-time All-Star cannot be happy with a number of the primary takeaways.

Not solely is the three-time NBA champion thought of essentially the most overrated participant within the NBA (tied with Russell Westbrook), however he is not even considered as one of many 5 finest defenders within the league:

1) Kawhi Leonard (30.3%)    
2) Paul George (16.2%)    
3) Rudy Gobert (14.9%)    
4) Patrick Beverley (10.5%)    
5) Joel Embiid (4.4%)    
6) Jrue Vacation (3.5%)    
7) Giannis Antetokounmpo, Draymond Inexperienced, Kris Dunn (2.6%)    
10) Klay Thompson, Torrey Craig, Mikal Bridges, Marcus Sensible (1.7%)    
14) Myles Turner; Kyle Lowry; Steven Adams; P.J Tucker; Royce O’Neale; David Nwaba (1%)

So of the 114 gamers who positioned a vote, solely three tabbed the 2017 Defensive Participant of the 12 months as the highest defensive participant.



Kris Dunn obtained the identical variety of votes. That’s ridiculous.

Whereas it is true that Draymond hasn’t been a dominant defensive drive as persistently in the course of the common season, when he’s giving most effort (whats up playoffs) he’s with out query one of many High 2-Three guys on that finish of the ground.

On Sunday towards the Clippers, he racked up 5 steals and three blocks.

Moreover, Draymond got here in first place in one other class, as almost 34 p.c picked him because the man who talks essentially the most trash.
