How hard is it to update 11 guys who made all-defense? ...and why does whether or not they make the list dictate what their defense is? Don't the people here at at WhatIf make up the defensive ratings themselves for all of the other players? If other player's (and the current all-defense guys) ratings are based on some metric(s), then what are the numbers the all-d guys currently have and why does making some list because people voted for them change how well they play defense? That seems like pawning the job of giving out def. ratings off on the the real NBA...not that I am surprised.

It's simple:

1. Make up defensive ratings for all players at the end of the season.
2. Ignore lists of people generated by other people voting because this doesn't change how well a player played defensively.
3. Stop neglecting basketball.
4. Profit (oh, wait...they already do that).

I must admit as much as I love this site (been coming here off and on since early 2000s), the way they decide defensive numbers has to be off.  Lebron has way too low a rating for this season.  So does Marc Gasol and some others.  You really start to get the feeling that these people don't actually watch basketball, they just plug in the numbers and put defensive ratings in on a whim.

On another note, here my top ten sim players from this season (no particular order):

1) Lebron: absolute beast.  I mean seriously, could that have been the best season ever stat wise.
2) Drummond: Look at those numbers with that defense.  Really solid in those limited minutes
3) Korver: Another great three point season to consider when drafting.
4) Curry: Perfect compliment to inside dominant teams. Probably won't be used on too many serious contenders though.
5) CP3: Solid season at the point, good defense and a good point guard platoon candidate.
6) ED Davis: makes this list because hes 100% eligible at SF. Excellent rebounding option if you want to stack rebounding.
7) Duncan: Excellent platoon candidate. 100 defense with very high def rebounding
8) Danny Green: ridiculously good efg with 84 defense
9) Durant: 50-40-90, solid defense, lots of minutes
10) Kidd: another good statistical season; perfect for platooning.

I'm waiting to unleash 12-13 Lebron till he's got his 90 d-rating.

Please accelerate this process.
