Before the Philadelphia 76ers take on the Atlanta Hawks in game 4 the team FINALLY got some recognition. Three members of the team were named to All-Defensive teams. (The Rightful heir to the NBA Defensive Player of the Year) Ben Simmons was named to the first team. While Joel Embiid and Matisse Thybulle were named to the second team. This is the second time in franchise history that the Sixers have had three members named to All-Defensive teams.
Ben Simmons was a lock. He got shafted for the Defensive Player of the Year award last week. But Joel Embiid finished 7th in the DPOY voting and Matisse, a role player, finished 12th. The Sixers are the only team to have three players named to All-Defensive Teams. The Bucks do have two players (Antetokuounmpo and Holiday) who were named to the first team.
Ya love to see it,.
