This is simply formality and he deserves a thread, but congrats to Josh Smith and Bucs for the Season One Baseline Award for Defensive Player of the Year! His peers could not even come up with a candidate to challenge him. Iman Shumpert was nominated, but could never be seconded. FYI: For those that did not nominate a DPOY, I looked the other day and the numbers for Josh Smith were just crazy good. It wasn’t going to be a contest. League leader in blocks, over a steal per game, and 7+ boards a game.
