Sixers’ Doc Rivers States His Case for Ben Simmons to Win DPOY

Fan Nation

Article Summary:

Ben Simmons has been gunning for the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year award for a few years now.

“I think because Ben plays everyone,” the coach explained. “Ben doesn’t just play 5s. Ben plays 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. He’s played every position on the floor. When he’s played those positions, he’s been able to come up with stops. There are very few players in NBA who can do the things that Ben does defensively.”

Through the first half of the season, it’s probably safe to assume Simmons is the frontrunner for the award. There’s still tons of basketball left to be played, and Simmons will have to remain healthy and sustain his high level of play defensively to win the award truly.
