MAGIC: Denton: Howard Earns Defensive Honor; Makes History

I think everyone figured it was going to be him. I think by the end of it all he'll have more awards then Ben Wallace and Dikembe.

which is sad (in a way) because on paper it will create the illusion that howard is the superior defensive player.

howard is a great weak-side shot blocker but he isn't half the overall defender that ben wallace was. not to mention wallace had to check guys like tim duncan in his prime, KG in his prime, etc. wallace's footwork on D was superior, he could guard SFs to Cs effectively, and there were multiple seasons where he averaged close to 2 steals. ben wallace was amazing, and i was scared whenever the raps played him. i've never gotten that sense playing the magic.

i'm not old enough to comment on mutumbo, though. from what i understand there's no contest there either.

Kevin Love was an All-Star this season. He deserves more rewards

I don't think the voters put enough thought into this one. It's hard to rely on statistics. So what else comes into play? I think with Dwight there is the feeling that he is always up for MVP consideration, but never a favorite, and so this is a chance for a consolation prize.
