Didn't he have 2 rebounds in game 1 vs. the Clippers? No DPOY should ever have 2 rebounds in a game unless he's carted off 2 minutes in after breaking his femur...just sayin

Yeah it's real. Apparently Duncan wasn't even in the top 5? What a shame....

MRJONESIII 04-22-13 06:39 PM

Don't worry, he'll be watching Duncan in the next round and further.... While he sits and admires his trophy!

i read the topic title and my first tought: &#$%&"$%# WTF!!!??? seriously watta disrespect for the best PF of all time having that remarcable season and at that age

JuanCaca 04-22-13 07:22 PM

i just read the link... and wondering, if thats the criteria, why tim duncan never got that thropy, if he literally was the heart and soul on a defensive juggernaut spurs teams...??? those years was because "others" has better statistics... this is a joke...

Kager 04-22-13 07:54 PM

For me the ones I am pissed about are 5 years ago and earlier, where we were the best D and he was the heart, soul and arms that allowed Bruce and co to be so aggressive..... if they didn't give it then they were never going to acknowledge him this year.

Duncan robbed again...but not as bad as the many years they got it wrong with Bowen. Will never convince me Ron Artest was a better defender or worked harder than Bruce Bowen. A travesty.

What a joke! The league as a whole is a joke at times. LOL at not top 5.

Flipmode Master 04-22-13 10:59 PM

Ibaka should have gotten it...easily...smh wow.

spurscrazed 04-22-13 11:17 PM

This is just So Very Wrong and Unfair! :sigh

Which team's D as an OVERALL ended with the BETTER SEED because of TD's HUGE Defensive Presence! ALL YEAR LONG!!!

No Question Timmy Got Robbed again! :smirk :cry
Gasol is a very good defensive player, but Tim is SO Much Better!!!

Here's for TD to get his NBA Championship Trophy and have the last laugh... That would only be Justice!!:wink

The Best Revenge is ending up not only with the Better Seed but also with the Best Reward in hand!

C'mon people, this is good news. Don't you all think Tim Duncan will make this his own motivation to come out and crush the Lakers in tomorrow's game? DPOY, indeed.

maldoror 04-24-13 01:54 AM

There's no way Gasol is DPOY. That's a joke, just like some of the MVP awards. Stupid media. He's not even the best defender on his own team. That would be Tony Allen.

tuncaboylu 04-24-13 04:00 AM

Who cares. I don't think that even Ducnan gives a s.it to it.

dark21horse 04-24-13 12:15 PM

Just goes to show you, all you have to do to be awarded DPOY is to be a 7 foot traffic cone.

clovisnmspurfan 04-24-13 02:04 PM

Give him the trophy, we have Duncan.
