    Someone give me a non nephew, casual take on why Marcus Smart "deserved" this award over Bam, Gobert, or even Giannis. Again, I emphasize, don’t give me some regurgitated, media pushed, highlight watcher BS narrative about "well, a guard hasn’t had it in a long time!" garbage. Give me a statistical reason why, and back it up. No only that, tell me why he was +20000 to win the award, and leap frogged 4 other contenders, including his own teammate, in Williams, who, ironically happens to be a better defender then he is…on why he "deserved" the award… So far, comments are just a bunch of casual bums who started watching hoops when the Warriors started their run, and the league turned into a sabre metric, 3 point, soft ass league!

    Out of disrespect on Smart! Not a mean or cleanest defense as I’ve seen for him even on swipe or block nor taking charges,. Seems have a physicality involve everytime he collides the officials letting it go! But seeing some is he had a highest +- on D if he’s around and he helps his team winning with the way he plays D and he deserves probably due to Celtics improvement from last year finish on regular season..Don’t get me wrong it’s just my opinion..

    Draymond and GP2 gonna let everyone hold its beer in the playoff,lol

    Let’s be real. Marcus Smart is a young Pat Beverly. Only reason smart actually won this award is Ben Simmons didn’t play all year, everyone tired of Rudy Gobert, Draymond Green injuries and Bam injuries. Guess he "deserves" it for staying healthy

    People need to appreciate good defense isn’t not just steals and blocks. A suffocating defensive possession leading to a forced bad shot is just as satisfying to watch.



  6. Jovanie Ortiz on April 20, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    Just because you annoying doesn’t make you a good defender.



  7. Thomas Brady on April 20, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Jordan Pippen Rodman
    Curry Thompson Green
    Tatum Brown Smart
    Giannis Middleton Holiday
    Butler Herro Adebayo
    Dirk Terry Chandler

    You need Batman, Robin and a the most undervalued one, a defensive Joker. This is the formula to success.

    He is so smart!



  9. Jay Brown on April 20, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    No



  10. frankenstien forever on April 20, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    he’s not an all star but hes a great leader and a heart and soul of these celtics team…i hope someday the celtics will retire his jersey…he deserve it



  11. NewwNeww on April 20, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    Personally would’ve went with rudy but marcus is also a good one!



  12. biko kampungu on April 20, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    No one deserves it better



  13. Kyler Mathis on April 20, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Damn how long has it been since a guard won defensive player of the year🤔



  14. Certified LG on April 20, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    He got better and cuter wth



  15. Clix on April 20, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Well deserved



  16. GRUMPYTHIRTYSEVEN on April 20, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    The NBA is a FUCKING JOKE. This award should’ve been given to Mikak Bridges.



  17. Κωνσταντίνος Μουστάκας on April 20, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    Marcus’ best steal was the one early in the season he wasn’t even looking at the ball and instictually moved his arm



  18. Franco Avila on April 20, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    I’m more Smarter subscribing…



  19. GrassJelly_GJ 涼粉 on April 20, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    Well-deserved, this guy got nasty kungfu kick and ankle breaking skills in his bag



  20. Tyler ferguson on April 20, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    but kyrie just gave him 39



  21. LV on April 20, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Still the perfect barometer for gauging if someone’s bball opinion should hold weight. You don’t like Marcus’ game, you simply do not know ball!



  22. jeremy morris on April 20, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Yeaaaaa Marcus well deserved 💯💯



  23. Dirty Mitten on April 20, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Bro is fr the clamp god



  24. TheRand0m on April 20, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    let’s go!!! Well deserved. Let’s go celtics.



  25. Mai Big Butt on April 20, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Imagine a guy back in the days acting as a dolphin flopping in the air is now a DPOTY. Well deserved award though and no one can even deny that fact.



  26. Jabari Samuel on April 20, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    I love how shallow and stupid some of the arguments are as to why Marcus Smart shouldn’t have won DPOY.



  27. Umar Farooq on April 20, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    This man is finally being rewarded for his efforts!



  28. Burton Jekel on April 20, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Before people start arguing about this and pulling up stats he also runs the defensive play calling on the floor. He is extremely talented with knowing where to be and where everyone else is.



  29. David Steege on April 20, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Just undeserved from almost every way you look at it, I love Marcus Smart but fr? Not even the best defensive guard this season, at least statistically.



  30. electrichoney24 on April 20, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    He should also have best actor award for flopping.



  31. 6WI4 on April 20, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Not much effort put into this video it seems… I’m glad at least half of the plays were defensive, but still, I would have liked a 3 minutes of pure defense highlights. Smart and others have plenty.



  32. KeyYaruu on April 20, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    Hell nah



  33. Greg Cantelli on April 20, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    We’ve heard this every day from the so called analyst this year…They need to trade Marcus Smart or can Jaylen and Jayson play together. Guess what? They don’t need to trade Marcus. Yes Jaylen and Jayson can play together. The analyst are wrong. They needed a head coach. Look, I liked Brad Steven but he just wasn’t good enough. Ime should get coach of the year for where this team started this year to where they are.



  34. 陈GXH on April 20, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    You need IQ to play defence!



  35. Storytelling by Noblesse on April 20, 2022 at 7:13 pm


  36. Coach Jackson on April 20, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    Well deserved



  37. P a u l on April 20, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    This is the least impressive defensive highlight reel I’ve ever seen for a DPOY



  38. Gabriel Pagaran on April 20, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Not a deserving player



  39. Josef Cagas on April 20, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    Finally, Smart realized he could put his body into good use instead of just flopping and pleading for fouls 💪



  40. P.J Felix on April 20, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    He is a dirty player



  41. Cedric Asdfghjkl on April 20, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Congratulations, that was a very SMART decision.



  42. SunriseOverIbiza on April 20, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    High basketball IQ. They should call him Marcus Intelligent.



  43. Regis on April 20, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Well deserved



  44. Adithya G S on April 20, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    Y’all missed how he guard steph ankle the other day 🙄



  45. flakeins69 on April 20, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    The dirtiest player that is it. He has injured players without remorse.



  46. Gabriel Pagaran on April 20, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    Ay that man who dived and injured Steph Curry so that Curry will be out of the conference.



  47. MatthewB25 on April 20, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    Well deserved



  48. Razwan Iqbal on April 20, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    He’s guarded 1 through to 5 for a few years this was long overdue👏🏽 YOUNG GAME CHANGER🏆



  49. Landon Lakes on April 20, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Where’s the badass video with the badass soundtrack of him taking charges in the face for 20 minutes straight?

    COME ON NBA
