This past season, Green led the National Basketball Association in steals per game (2.03) and was the first player in Warriors history to record at least 150 steals and 100 blocked shots in a single season. He also became the first player in franchise history to register at least 150 steals and 100 blocked shots in a season. The 35-year-old led the league in steal percentage (3.1), his second time to lead the league in the category (4.1 in 2014-15).

Green recorded two blocks and 1.4 steals per game in the regular season.

While signing Kevin Durant, Golden State had to jettison Andrew Bogut and Harrison Barnes, two key role players who played large parts on the defensive end as well.

New Orleans center Anthony Davis was named to the second team along with guards Tony Allen (Memphis) and Danny Green (San Antonio) and forwards Andre Roberson (Oklahoma City) and Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee).

This is Leonard's third time on the All-Defensive first team and fourth overall spot on a Defensive Team. The other three are George Gervin, Robinson and Duncan. DRPM estimates a player's impact on team defense, measured in points allowed per 100 defensive possessions.

Often recognized due to their explosive offense, the Warriors, behind Green, ranked second in defensive rating and No. 1 in opponent field goal percentage.

In a long battle for this award, Green set out to win it from the start of the season, claiming the only reason he'd chase this personal accolade is because it helps everyone else on the team. The Spurs have now been represented on the NBA All-Defensive Team in 27 of the last 30 seasons.

From there, players fired away on Twitter with their displeasure, including a former teammate in Jared Sullinger and some players who were checked by Bradley this season.
