Clippers' Chris Paul named to NBA All-Defensive First Team

Joining Green at the center of the honors, General Manager and President of Basketball Operations Bob Myers was named the NBA Executive of the Year.

He added a sixth consecutive season to that accomplishment on Monday.

On this year's All-Defensive Team ballot, Roberson, who started at small forward for the Thunder with the addition of Victor Oladipo into the starting lineup, was designated exclusively as a forward.

Green recorded two blocks and 1.4 steals per game in the regular season. That unit terrorized opponents for much of the season and kicked into high gear in the playoffs as Golden State romped its way to the title.

Often recognized due to their explosive offense, the Warriors, behind Green, ranked second in defensive rating and No. 1 in opponent field goal percentage.

The NBA finally got around to releasing the All-Defensive Teams on Monday, and it provided former Kentucky star John Wall with a laugh, apparently.
