Smart should make at least 2nd team this season. Ridiculous if he doesnt

Brown, Horford, Rozier ?

I don't think Brown will because guys like George, Klay and Jimmy Butler get the attention for long defensive wings.

Horford should for sure be in consideration for second team. AD and Gobert will be the bigs for the first team

Brown, Smart, and Horford.

Semi could a few years down the road if he progresses and becomes more of an impact help defender. (and gets some respect from the refs lol)

Horford should be on it.


Eventually, I expect to see Brown and Smart on it. 


I don't think any of the other top level defenders the Celtics have will ever have a big enough role on the Celtics to get the needed votes. 

Knicks: Irving, Drummond, Marcus Morris, S. Muhammad, C. Lee, Sullinger, Hield, M. Chriss , V. Carter, T. Zeller, N. Cole, T. Prince, Livio Jean-Charles, Tyler Ulis, N. Collison

I really don't think Horford is going to make it this year, which will make me roll my eyes. This is based on the DPOY votes and public media ballots seems likely.

Will seem very silly based on these playoffs if it happens.

Doubt it. Too many big men with better numbers who would go ahead of him, like Davis, Gobert, Jordan, Embiid and the like

Edit: Didn't realise how poor DJ was this year with his defensive stats

Smart should be First Team every year. No one in the league plays defense like he does.

Won't happen this year -- again -- because of the injuries.
