Grindfather named National Basketball Association 2nd team all-Defense

Russell Westbrook #0 of the Oklahoma

It is the first time in his career he has been named to an All-NBA Defensive Team.

While Bradley played some spectacular defense against the likes of Jimmy Butler and John Wall during Boston's playoff run, he did miss 27 games due to injury during the regular season, which likely cost him a spot on one of the two All-Defensive teams.

In fact, a panel on ESPN gave Leonard no shot at all at the MVP, with 86 percent picking Westbrook and 14 percent going with Harden. Players who received votes at multiple positions were slotted at the position where they received the most votes.

Finalists for the other major awards to be announced on tonight's show, at 8 p.m. This marks the sixth straight season (and 7th overall) that CP3 was named to the All-Defensive First Team, and Beverley's first. He also averaged a career-highs of 25.5 points and 3.5 assists to go along with 5.8 rebounds in 33.4 minutes.

The league revealed the results of voting in an official release Monday afternoon, Wall's name found in the "Others players receiving votes" category despite his league-leading 157 steals and 49 blocks - best among National Basketball Association point guards.

In addition, Beverley averaged 1.48 steals, helping the Rockets rank fourth in the league in turnovers forced (opponents 15.1 tpg). He was also a 2nd team pick during the 2014-'15 season. Each All-Defensive Team consists of one center slot, two forwards and two guards.

San Antonio reached the Western Conference Finals in its first season without Duncan, who retired last July.
