Anthony Davis, Jimmy Butler, John Wall, Tim Duncan and Andrew Bogut were named to the NBA's All-Defensive Second Team on Wednesday.
The Scoop: The surprising omission here is Rudy Gobert, who helped the Jazz become the toughest interior defense after the break. However, he is a center, so it would have been tough for him to make it over DeAndre Jordan or Bogut. Although, it's not a tough case to make, especially since he played 575 more minutes than Bogut this season. Anthony Davis led the NBA in blocks per game, but his numbers with on-ball defense don't match up with Kawhi Leonard and Draymond Green, the First Team forwards.
