No defensive votes for Denver Nuggets


After watching the Denver Nuggets struggle to defend the perimeter and give an average of 101.2 points a contest – which was second worst in the NBA, it wasn’t too surprising to see no Nuggets players get a vote for All-Defensive Team.

JaVale McGee, Kenneth Faried and Corey Brewer were most likely to get recognized for their defense. Each brought great defensive energy in the playoffs and made life difficult for Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Surprisingly Derrick Rose and Carlos Boozer each got a vote, despite their inefficiency on defense and Rose dealing with injuries for much of the year.
