Tayshaun Prince receives single vote for All-Defensive second team

Tayshaun Prince received an All-Defensive second team vote. Hurray!

Obviously, that’s not nearly enough to make an actual All-Defensive team. So, to nobody’s surprise the Pistons – after placing someone on an All-Defensive team every year between 2002 and 2008 – have gone three straight years without an All-Defensive team representative.

Prince also received a single second-team vote last year, and that was totally undeserved. He played just 49 games and his defense was pretty lacking in those.

This year? I wouldn’t have voted for him, but it’s not nearly as egregious. Prince’s defense bounced back quite a bit this season. He’s no longer the lockdown defender he once was, but he’s at least solid again.

    The lockdown defender is extinct.
    If you look at the all defense team it has been relegated to players that can:
    -block a shot, which I would venture to guess is more help side blocks than straight up
    -steal a pass, which is more of the variety of knocking the ball away from behind as the offensive player passes the defender (i.e. Rondo)
    You can no longer body up  or work for position because you will get whistled. So, if I were Prince I would pay no heed to that accolade
