Houston's rocket head coach, Mike D 'Antoni, is pleased that James Harden is in the final for the NBA's most valuable 2018 Player award, but it is very disappointing that none of his players received any recognition this season. D 'Antoni feels that PJ Tucker failed to pass the rockets to the elite circle defenders in the series this season. D´Antoni believes that Tucker is worthy of inclusion in the 2018 NBA All-Defense Team this year. The veteran coach said that the player was being stolen the second year in a row.
“It should have been done last year,” said D´Antoni through Mark Berman of Fox 26 Sports Houston. “It's not a big voting system. It's definitely worth it. I'm sure other guys are going to be there. ”
Tucker sees many people as the best defender in the Rocket offensive system. Often entrusted to the 34-year-old person the best player of the other team to exist. It is also worth noting that the initial hurdle was 1.6 high-career thefts this season.
The series named Rudy Gobert, Paul George, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Marcus Smart, and Eric Bledsoe entered the NBA First Defense Team this season. Jrue Holiday, Klay Thompson, Joel Embiid, Draymond Green, and Kawhi Leonard comprised the Second NBA 2019 Defense Team.
