Giannis Defensive Player of the Year; Simmons fourth

Giannis 432
Brow 200
Gobert 187
Simmons 32
Bam 17

Others with votes: Beverley, Smart, Drummond, Kawhi, BLopez, Whiteside and J Allen.

Simmons got one first place vote.

Giannis likely to double up with MVP and DPOTY, joining Jordan and Olajuwon as the only to do it in the same season.

Good result for Ben. Will surely make all defensive first team too given he's the only guard in the top five of voting.

Who would give Lopez a vote over some other bigs in the league?

Surprised Kawhi was that far down the list. Isn't he considered to be a brilliant defender?
