Y'all laker fans need to get over that CP3 thing lol. He's on the other side now, and looking like he's going to sign an extension. He didn't really wanna be a Laker. Y'all could've possibly had Dwight, but he doesn't wanna be a Laker either. Dude doesn't wanna play with Kobe. And don't start complaining about the bench and supporting cast now. Just sit back and join us bobcat fans watching the rest of the playoffs.

NEW YORK (AP) NBA Most Valuable Player LeBron James was the leading vote-getter for the league's all-defensive squad Wednesday, while Defensive Player of the Year Tyson Chandler didn't even crack the first team.

Confused? So were plenty of others - even a Harvard graduate.

Jeremy Lin, Chandler's teammate in New York, took to Twitter to ask for an explanation of how that was possible.

The answer is because the voting is done by different parties. A media panel voted for Defensive Player of the Year, while the all-defensive team vote was conducted by the league's 30 head coaches, who voted for a first and second team by position and were not allowed to pick their own players.

They favored Orlando's Dwight Howard, the NBA's leading rebounder and its top defensive player three straight years before Chandler, as their center.

Also on the first team were Thunder forward Serge Ibaka, who led the league in blocks and was runner-up to Chandler for Defensive Player of the Year; Clippers guard Chris Paul, the league leader in steals; and Grizzlies guard Tony Allen.

Ibaka and Allen earned first-team honors for the first time.

James totaled 53 points, including 24 first-team votes. He averaged 1.9 steals and 7.9 rebounds as Miami ranked fourth in the league in opponent scoring.

Joining on Chandler on the second team were Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett of the Celtics, Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, and Chicago forward Luol Deng.

LeBron makes 1st team all defense for the 4th consecutive season. Its interesting to see how the coaches gave him the most votes, but didn't even have the DPOY on the 1st team. Im of the opinion, the NY media is responsible for Chandler getting DPOY when he didnt clearly deserve it this year. I always felt LeBron and Ibaka were more worthy candidates, and that Chandler should've got it LAST YEAR with the championship D he provided the Mavs.

Despite having a reputation of being a playoff choker, LeBron James leads all players in playoff scoring in 2012.

His 2012 playoff stat line of...

29.9 PPG, 8.9 RPG, 5.5 APG, 2.1 SPG 74.3 FT%

is nothing to sneeze at. And compares favorably to Karl Malone who I've been comparing him to this playoff.

Karl Malone's playoff stats (193 games)

24.7 PPG, 10.7 RPG, 3.2 APG, 73.6 FT%

LeBron's 3,026 playoff points has him at #19 on the all time playoff scoring list directly ahead of first ballot HOFers like James Worthy, Clyde Drexler, Reggie Miller, and Charles Barkley. Think about that for a second, all the great moments and playoff games those guys have had in their careers, LeBron at 27 has already surpassed them.

His playoff career scoring average of 28.8 rests at #4 all time behind Michael Jordan, Allen Iverson, & Jerry West (all 3 HOFers or soon to be)

Title this year or not, LeBron is already a first ballot HOFer and is only adding to his legacy the closer he gets to a championship. And the reputation of "playoff choker" doesnt hold up.

In 1991, LeBron's GM Pat Riley sat down and interviewed Michael Jordan (28 years old). In this interview before his first championship Jordan explains how winning a title doesnt define him and how not winning one "wouldn't tarnish his career".

So basically your argument is Jordan didn't win his titles completely by himself? Scottie Pippen & Dennis Rodman are the only two good players Jordan ever had. John Paxton, Steve Kerr, Tony Kukoc, Bill Weddington, Luc Longley, etc. LOL

Wade & Bosh > Pippen & Rodman

& Rodman was only around for the 2nd 3-peat. Other than those two guys Jordan was surrounded by scrubs. LeBron can put up all the big numbers he wants but when it's crunch time he needs Wade or Bosh to carry him because he can't.

Jordan was 1-9 without Pippen in his early career, and never made the playoffs without him later in his career. Please keep the hillbilly UNC homer troll stuff in the appropiate forum (college basketball).

I would love to see LeBron lead the Wizards to the playoffs surrounded by scrubs at age 42.

Hillbilly? I'll post wherever I want you black turd.

Did you actually just call someone a "dork"? That is hilarious. You are either 12 years old....or have the mental capacity of a 12 yo. I am betting on the latter.
