yeah I don't understand this opinion. TO me the Boring ball is the uncontested layups and dunks so frequent with the run and gun. THat game between the suns and mavs last fall was terrible in my mind. No D at all, just run the floor and fill it up. Highlights are not good basketball. Give me spurs, pistons or bulls anyday of the week.

I completely agree with you give me the Spurs incredible team D and offensive execution, Kirk Hinrich's D, and the Pistons flawless chemistry over and offensive shootout 8 out of 10 times. The other two times i would rather watch a shootout because i enjoy those too but to a lesser degree.

its only partly the spurs style of play that makes me dislike them. it is also because they have ZERO players that i like on the team. many of my least favorite players in the league and the players that i personally think are very boring play for the spurs. actually my opinion is probably caused more by the players on the team than the way the team plays.

No mention of Artest?

He might be crazy. He might be on a losing team.

But he's one helluva defender.

Here we go with the "Blocks don't count" bullcrap again. If Camby or Josh Smith aren't good defenders even though they block 3 shots per game, then how in the hell do you determine DPOTY?

"In the 4 games I saw Bruce Bowen play he really stayed in front of his man"

"Artest was good in Indiana so he has to be still good in Sactown, right?"

Stats don't obviously tell you the entire story but if you don't have stats you shouldn't be in the discussion.

I think that Salim Stoudamire is the best 3 point shooter in the league but since he only shot 38% from 3 in limited action I can't give him the 3 point title.

Need further evidence center Marcus Camby should clear a shelf for a trophy?

Commissioner David Stern is scheduled to attend Game 3 at the Pepsi Center after being scheduled to attend tonight's Dallas at Golden State game. Camby is expected to be honored for winning Defensive Player of the Year. Golden State's Monta Ellis will be honored tonight for winning Most Improved Player.

Camby is expected to be named Defensive Player of the Year today. He would consider it a team honor.

No Bruce plays great defense because hes always out there guarding the best player at the position at which most points are scored. Why dont you watch some games instead of boxscores.

Report: Marcus Camby Defensive Player of the Year

April 27, 2007 12:17 PM


Marc J. Spears of the Denver Post has the scoop:

"It would be the greatest award I've received, other than college player of the year (at the University of Massachusetts in 1996). There are so many great people that won the award," said Camby, in a phone interview Thursday.

The Nuggets are expected to announce the award during a press conference today. NBA commissioner David Stern will be at Game 3 Saturday night at the Pepsi Center and is expected to give Camby the award prior to the game against San Antonio. While the media voting for the award has yet to be released, other candidates included San Antonio forwards Tim Duncan and Bruce Bowen and Phoenix's Shawn Marion. Chicago center Ben Wallace won the past two awards and four of the past five as a member of the Detroit Pistons.

"I just try to be consistent with rebounding the basketball and blocking shots and having trust from my teammates that if they get beat I'll be there to block a shot," Camby said. "I led the league in blocks and finished top four in rebounding. I try to be consistent with that."

Camby is no doubt getting the award on the basis of his gaudy block (3.3 per game, first in the league) and rebound (11.7 per game, tied for fourth) statistics. And at those things, he is amazing. He has the gift of the block, and he should absolutely be recognized in some fashion for that.

We need better ways to measure defense, though, because more than one basketball person has told me that Camby could help his team a lot more on the defensive end.

When defending pick and rolls, the key skill of NBA defense, Camby doesn't often even try to show, trap, or do anything to impede the ball-handler's path to the paint. That means a lot of plays that might have resulted in a frustrated offense -- but no stats for anyone -- instead result in a large number of plays at the rim. That's an inflated number of layups, runners, floaters, and dunks for the other team, which really hurts Denver, as well as an inflated number of blocks and rebounds for Mr. Camby.
