Didn't win it last year due to his injury but probably would have. He probably wont have as much defensive responsibility on the lakers now though.

Easily if healthy. Less offensive responsibility is gonna lead to much more energy defensively. He may pull down 17 boards and have 3-4 blocks a game.

He's motivated, his jobs been made easier, he has better defenders around him

If he's healthy he's going to be a monster defensively

I want him to average 25 rebounds like Wilt did in 60s and block 8 shots. Why? BASKETBALL REASONS.

Will have to do alot with our record. If OKC has the best record, I wouldn't be surprised if Ibaka gets the votes, even though he's not a great defender outside of his shot-blocking abilities. If Lakers get the best record, Howard for sure really. And Lebron's name will be glooming amongst the candidates aswell if Miami gets the best season record.

Thats pure BS, it does not matter the record , Orlando never had the best record in league and still Howard won it 3 times in a row, same story this year with Chandler.

I think Dwight is going to win the MVP. Can't wait to see him, and Nash get to work.

DPOY is media-voted. That's why this time around the record will dictate alot of the media's votes. Howard won it three times had alot to do with his popularity, along with his tremendous defensive capabilities along a team that had really no other defensive player.. And Chandler won it for his playoff defense in his championship run with the Mavericks. He most likely still would've gotten even if Howard was healthy throughout the season, despite Dwight clearly putting on a better defensive effort as opposed to Chandler with the Knicks. Chandler then landed in the 2nd All-Defensive team, and Howard was on the 1st All-Defensive team. Take a hint from that.

I'm not saying who will deserve it and who won't, but if Oklahoma get the best record, the media will give them more attention, and in-return they will be given more accolades like MVP, DPOY etc etc. Ibaka was the league leading shot blocker last season, and will most likely replicate it again this season, now what's stopping media members from voting for Ibaka if OKC does land an incredible record and he puts up solid defensive numbers once again? Nothing. Same goes for Lakers with Howard or Miami with Lebron James. It's just how the system works.

Well Dwight will prolly be our MVP and DPOY candidate he can prolly win both too but it depends how much time he will sit and also how much time it will get him to jell in our system.

PS. I wish Kobe wins MVP and Dwight DPOY...Kobe deserves one more at least...

I think Dwight is undoubtedly the favorite to win this every year.
Just like he told Stephen A., it should of been his 4th DPOY award this past season

The dude barely played the second half of the season. He didn't deserve it this year.

KOBE. #VINO. BRYANT.

Well I think he meant while telling Stephen A. it should of been his 4th DPOY award if he didn't get hurt and played his usual full season.

I mean no knock on Tyson Chandler (who I must say deserved it this season no doubt) but if Dwight was there the entire season it's his every year.

I think in due time Anthony Davis might be able to give Dwight a run for his money
