Check out who made the All-Defensive NBA Teams this year.
The first annual NBA Awards show is going down tonight at 9pm on TNT, but the league has already announced the All-Rookie Teams as well as the All-Defensive First Team, which is headlined by the three Defensive Player of the Year finalists, Draymond Green, Rudy Gobert and Kawhi Leonard.
Draymond finished as runner up for the DPOY to Kawhi in the past two seasons.
In addition to those three players, a global panel of 100 sportswriters and broadcasters also selected guards Chris Paul and Patrick Beverley for All-Defensive First Team honors. This marks the sixth straight season (and 7th overall) that CP3 was named to the All-Defensive First Team, and Beverley's first.
Check out the full breakdown of the NBA's All-Defensive First and Second teams below.
