One of the most notable role players of the Los Angeles Lakers, Danny Green, details why he thinks LA’s big man Anthony Davis should win the Defensive Player of the Year award this season:
“The reason why we’re one of the top defensive teams is because our team collectively has been great. The reason why Anthony Davis is the best defensive player on the best defensive team in the league and it’s credit to JaVale, Dwight, Avery Bradley, LeBron, KCP, all of those guys have played great defensively all year and the best player for us defensively is Anthony Davis. He should get the award, obviously it’s an individual award, but it’s also a team award in that aspect,” Green said.
In 26 games so far this year, Davis is averaging 27.4 points, 9.3 rebounds, 1.5 steals, 2.6 blocks, and 3.3 assists per game, while shooting at 49.9% from the field.
The Lakers are 1st in the Pacific Division with a 24-3 record.
