We'll see if Wall or any other Wizards win awards tonight on TNT.

Green beat out Utah center Rudy Gobert and San Antonio forward Kawhi Leonard for the award after leading the league in steals with 2.03 steals per game.

Green openly campaigned for the award during the season, and was the key to Golden State's attack. This past season, Green led the National Basketball Association in steals per game (2.03) and was the first player in Warriors history to record at least 150 steals and 100 blocked shots in a single season.

Green led the league in steals per game (2.03) and finished 12th in blocks per game (1.39).

Green was able to overcome Leonard for the first time in three years, after finishing runner-up for the last two years to The Klaw. With per game averages of 23.1 points and 10.7 assists, he officially rose to superstar level in the eyes of most members of the national media.

The NBA Announced on Monday that Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley was named NBA All-Defensive First Team.

Now, he said, reporters want to talk to jurors about their deliberations, and what led to the jury becoming deadlocked. For Constand, the worst-case scenario is that she has spent a decade braving legal scrutiny as a victim for nothing.

Like Green, Leonard was named to the first team for the third time.

Leonard stayed as one of the NBA's top defenders in the 2016-17 season, locking opposing players down in one-on-one situations. It was also the second time Davis earned that distinction.

Philadelphia 76ers rookies Joel Embiid and Dario Saric fell short of the NBA Rookie of the Year award, but they weren't the only two Sixers players to get votes for an award during the NBA's two-hour show on TNT Monday night.

Roberson, a fourth-year pro for the Oklahoma City Thunder, received three first team and 47 second team votes to finish eighth overall in the polling.

Andre Roberson and Giannis Antetokounmpo joined him as frontcourt players with 53 and 35 points respectively. A number of NBA players, including 2017 MVP victor Russell Westbrook, showed off their fashion sense at Basketball City at Pier 36 in New York City.
