Anthony Davis named to NBA All-Defensive Second Team

Mike D'Antoni is the favorite to win the 2017 NBA Coach of the Year Award

Having already won an NBA Championship with the San Antonio Spurs back in 2013, former UNC standout Danny Green received the first individual honor of his eight-year pro career on Monday.

Draymond Green is the Defensive Player of the Year, ending Kawhi Leonard's two-year reign.

Paul was named to the team for the sixth consecutive season and seventh time overall while Beverley made it for the first time.

For Draymond Green, this is the third time in a row he has made an appearance on the All-Defensive first team. He is the only Spur to ever win multiple Defensive Player of the Year awards. The metric measures a player's impact on team defense per 100 defensive possessions.

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.

For the previous three years, China was on the Tier 2 Watch List. "Responsible nations also must take further action", he said. She wrote on Twitter that she was "honored to join the Department of State" for the report's release.

His versatility, being able to guard all positions on the floor at an elite level ultimately sparked the difference for the Michigan State standout, now heavily decorated in only five seasons in the league.

Allen (6-4, 213) appeared in 71 games (66 starts) for Memphis this season, averaging 9.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists and a team-leading 1.62 steals in 27.0 minutes per game.

Jazz point guard George Hill also got one third-place vote. Green isn't just Golden State's most talented defender; he's the one who directs his four teammates into the places where they need to go.

The awards show capped its ceremony by announcing Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook as the Most Valuable Player for 2016-17.

The team then earned its NCAA bid by winning the Big Ten Tournament before losing in the Sweet 16.
