Yes he will. The other day on LA radio they were going over the Lakers saying what each player gave them. Criticism most of them, but when Kobe came up they said, "We know he's going to give you amazing offense and all defensive 1st team defense." Analyst don't watch these games as close as people on freaking ISH.

Good thing the analysts don't actually vote for defensive teams....

Kobe should not have been on defensive teams for most of the last few seasons. Yes I know he can play D when he wants but for the most part he has been conserving energy on that side of the ball for offense.

0% chance of him making it.



He certainly shouldn't have been 1st Team in 2011 and he shouldn't have made either team last year. But he managed to make the 2nd team last year. This is the year he falls off.


OP is not exactly making a bold statement. For those who think he will, you'll have to be very wrong...unless he literally turns around his defensive season.

Although he's not playing the greatest defense for his standards, nobody on his position is playing better than him defensively.

Kobe can do so much.

There's probably literally dozens of guards playing better defense than Kobe this year. 3/4 of the All-Defense guard spots right now should be reserved for Tony Allen, Sefolosha, and Iguodala, and Kobe's not the fourth....not even close.

You're saying Kobe plays better defence than Avery Bradley and Tony Allen?

Sorry, but to be considered right now you have to have played more than five games. Bradley has zero case or argument to be All-Defense right now. Of course I'm sure he's probably played about as much defense in five games than Kobe has all season this year.

I've listed three guards that I think deserve 3/4 of the guard spots on the All-Defense teams: Allen, Sefolosha, Iguodala. I'm sure there's at least 10-15 others that deserve that fourth spot over Kobe.
