    Default A member of the Nuggets wins DPOY...put Bowen on suicide watch.

    http://www.denverpost.com/nuggets/ci_5763899



    I'm sorry, I love what Camby brings to the floor (Pacers fans can vouch for that), but he can't be the DPOY on one of the worst defensive teams in the NBA. It'd be like a guy winning MVP off a 20-win team.

    And if Bowen couldn't win DPOY this year, where he was basically the only candidate off a team known for its defense, it is just never going to happen for him.

    I think it's fine. A 5-man defense, an individual's role in a team defense, and individual defense are not all the same thing.

    MVP is most valuable player, not neccesarily the best, which is why it almost always goes to guys on top-5 teams.

    DPOY should always go to the best defender, and Camby was as good as anybody this year sans a pre-injury Jermaine O'Neal

    As for Bowen being the only viable DPOY on the Spurs, Tim Duncan is a perenially All-Defensive 1st teamer and a top DPOY candidate. I'm sure they take votes away from each other, which is probably why neither has yet to win the award.

    I don't have a problem with Camby winning. Ben Wallace had a down year, Artest had a down year defensively, Bowen didn't seem to do that great this year.

    Bruce Bowen's key defensive move -slide his foot under a player in the air causing injury , was highly publicized causing him some lost respect and bad press.

    Well, I guess this proves how dumb the voters are. Jermaine at 10th in the voting is a travesty.

    Everyone said Bowen wasn't as good this year, but from the little I saw it didn't seem like it. I think he should have won.

    2 thumbs up for Bowen not getting it.

    He shouldn't even be allowed to play in the NBA after trying to injure opponents.

    If Bowen is so dirty, why did the coaches give hime the most votes when selecting the All-Defensive team? Seems if he was dirty the coaches would say so by not respecting him with the highest vote total.

    It is also interesting that Camby almost didn't make the 1st team. B. Wallace had more first place votes, but less second place ones. Missed tying Camby by one point.

    On the local front, JO only got 3 points.

    How does Jermaine come up what top 10 in the voting for DPOY, but gets 3 votes for all defensive teams.

    Because sports writers chose the DPOY award.

    Sorry, i forgot to finish the sentence. The coaches vote for the teams, but they cannot vote for their own players.
