Trevor Ariza DPOY 2009?
Posted February 15, 2009 - 12:20 PM
I think our points allowed per game average should play against him and I think his first rival is... Lebron James, with amazing stats on blocks and steals and one of the best team defense.
What do you guys think?

I'd plow Vanessa Bryant.

Being a backup, Ariza defends other backups quite a bit. I'm not saying he doesn't defend others well, but he'd have to do it consistently, for 30+ minutes, before he's recognized as a top 10 defensive player in the NBA.

Dwight is winning the award.

United we stand. Divided we fall.

KG and Camby winning over TD is a crime beyond humanity...

Yeh very unlikely. Unless he starts all the remaining games and just somehow becomes a defensive beast for 48 minutes per game.

A guy like Ariza doesn't stand a chance to get it this year.
Slowly, but surely, who could work his way into the discussion, though. He probably needs a full post-season where he makes some big plays.
But again, Kobe still takes the #1 defensive assignments in big games. That hurts Trevor's chances immensely, at least in the near future.
Plus, his size (weight) prevents him from being able to effectively D up some of the larger 2's and 3's (see: Pierce, Paul), which is an area that hurts us as a team.
