Marc Gasol is my DPOY as of today, Hibbert and Noah have also been excellent on that end (Duncan has as well but he's missed a good deal of time; I've also gone back and forth on KG...he's probably not a DPOY based on team record, but Boston's defense is 7th right now and IMO will finish 5th, and they completely fall apart without him).
It's nice to see Chandler within 1rpg of the league lead though. I think he's been better than every center in the East other than Noah this season.
