Leonard, Green named to All-Defensive teams


The All-Defensive First Team included Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors, Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz, Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs, Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers and Patrick Beverly of the Houston Rockets. Roberson played his first three seasons in the league primarily as a shooting guard and typically guards the other team's top perimeter player whether it's a point guard, shooting guard or small forward.

Leonard also made the All-NBA first team and is a finalist for the MVP award, which also will be announced in tonight's show. According to basketball-reference.com's Defensive Box Plus/Minus, which measures a player's defensive impact per 100 possessions, Roberson logged a 2.1, 15th among players who played 30 or more minutes per game this season. Green averaged 7.3 points and 5.3 rebounds in his seventh season with the Spurs, helping the team reach the Western Conference finals.
