Now time for the most awkward award winner ever. Tyson Chandler of the New York Knickerbockers won Defensive Player of the Year. So of course that means he will also be on the All Defensive First Team, right? Nah, nothing ever goes as planned in the NBA. Just to troll everyone Dwight Howard was named to the First Team and Chandler was thrust upon the lowly second team. Tyson tried so hard and got so far, but in the end it didn’t really matter.
