Rajon Rondo made first team All NBA Defense today, finishing second in total votes behind Dwight Howard.  Here are the 2 teams:

2009-10 NBA All-Defensive Team
First Team
Position Player, Team 1st 2nd Points
Center Dwight Howard, Orlando 28 1 57
Guard Rajon Rondo, Boston 23 4 50
Forward LeBron James, Cleveland 20 5 45
Guard Kobe Bryant, L.A. Lakers 13 8 34
Forward Gerald Wallace, Charlotte 11 8 30

Second Team
PositionPlayer, Team1st2ndPoints

GuardDwyane Wade, Miami8420
ForwardJosh Smith, Atlanta6820
ForwardAnderson Varejao, Cleveland21115
GuardThabo Sefolosha, Oklahoma City3814

Kevin Garnett received 5 points (1 1st team vote) and Kendrick Perkins received 4 points (1 1st team vote).  My guess is Stan Van Gundy picked KG and Perkins for 1st team.

Does Bean really deserve to be on the first team?  He'd certainly have my vote for the player who bitches the most to officials.

    Good stuff TB. That's pretty cool that Rondo got so close to taking the #1 spot. Not sure about Kobe on the 1st team. What I am sure is that he's on the decline and the Lakers paying him 30 mil a year for the next few years is awesome. lol.

    How come I knew Rondo and Bibby were going to be sliding to the left? But now look! All that white space on the right lol...

    You added all those tables just to make my life difficult. :/ lol.

    Bean on the 1st team is obviously wrong choice.
    If Van Gundy gave Perk and KG the first spots, he has my sympaties (and a brain).

    As much as I love KG, he is no longer an all defensive team player, but Perk sure is. I'd take him over the Brazilian baby any day.
