The NBA has released the All-Defensive Teams for the 2013-2014 season.  Not very surprisingly, there were no Denver Nuggets listed as starters.

2013-14 NBA All-Defensive First Team

Center | Joakim Noah, Chicago

Forward | Paul George, Indiana

Guard | Chris Paul, LA Clippers

Forward | Serge Ibaka, Oklahoma City

G/F | Andre Iguodala, Golden State (fooey!)

2013-14 NBA All-Defensive Second Team

Forward | LeBron James, Miami

Guard | Patrick Beverley, Houston

Guard | Jimmy Butler, Chicago

Forward | Kawhi Leonard, San Antonio

Center | Roy Hibbert, Indiana (I still want you in Denver)

The surprising aspect of the All-Defensive Team was a couple of the NBA players who collected votes.  For me specifically, it was Houston Rockets James Harden.  I love watching Harden play basketball but “All-Defensive Team”??  A tip of the hat goes to former Denver Nugget Corey Brewer for collecting a vote.

This got me to thinking, which Denver Nugget is most likely to receive an All-Defensive Team vote?  Wilson Chandler and Darrel Arthur spring into mind.  Kenneth Faried in a year or two with some proper defensive tutelage from Denver’s coaching staff is a possibility.  Maybe Danilo Gallinari but I’m not sure if that is just me missing him after a year off.  What do you think?  Please vote in the poll.
