Marion Shafted for Defensive Player of the Year

Marcus Camby won the award and Shawn Marion came in fourth.  The interesting thing is what Henry Abbott of TrueHoop has to say about it.  I won't quote the whole thing here because it's kind of long  but the gist of it (Abbott is quoting 82games.com):  

The 6-7 Marion starts at the small forward position, yet Marion grabbed more defensive boards per game than 53 of 60 starting centers and power forwards in the league, and did so playing next to an accomplished rebounder in 6-11 Amare Stoudemire.

It goes on for quite a while.  Check it out if you want to be able to argue with friends for awhile this weekend.

What do you think?
