The 2017 Players Voice Awards pick for "Best Defender" goes to...
On June 26, Draymond Green took home the Defensive Player of the Year award at the first annual NBA Awards Show.
He received 73 first-place votes, 22 second-place votes and three third-place votes. (Yes, he was left off of two ballots entirely)
Rudy Gobert was the runner-up with 16 first-place votes, 53 second-place votes and 30 third-place votes.
Kawhi finished in third with 11 first-place votes, 23 second-place votes and 58 third-place votes.
While the media recognized Draymond as the best defensive player in the NBA last season, his peers don't agree.
In 2015, Draymond finished runner-up and was left off 42 ballots.
