More on this storyline

Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green has some strong thoughts about a system in which members of the media vote on the NBA’s top awards. Green said on his podcast Wednesday that it’s “absolutely disgusting” the media determines the league’s individual honors. “I think when you look at voting for All-NBA, when you look at voting for Defensive Player of the Year, Most Improved Player, MVP, ultimately these things are voting on by the media, which I think is absolutely disgusting,” he said at the 4:40 mark. “Because these are human beings that could have personal issues against guys because that does happen.” -via Bleacher Report / April 21, 2022

Gerald Bourguet: Monty Williams on Mikal Bridges finishing 2nd in DPOY voting: “One, congrats to Marcus, he’s an amazing defender and has been for a long time, and he’s finally getting his due. At the same time, I was a bit stung when Mikal didn’t get it, but I was also happy he finished 2nd.” -via Twitter @GeraldBourguet / April 19, 2022

Mark Medina: Draymond Green on the DPOY award: “I’m extremely happy for Marcus Smart. That’s a guy I respect as a defender. Well deserved.” -via Twitter @MarkG_Medina / April 19, 2022
