Anthony Davis will end yet another season without a Defensive Player of the Year award. On Tuesday, the NBA announced that Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is the Defensive Player of the Year for the 2019-20 season. This is Antetokounmpo’s first time winning the award. Is Davis upset about the 2nd place finish? Kendrick Perkins seems to think so:
Congratulations to Giannis on getting the DPOY…on the other hand watch out for a Pissed off AD because he got ROBBED!!! Some media people getting caught up into those deep statistical numbers instead of evaluating with the EYE TEST. Carry on…

Davis averaged 2.4 blocks and 1.5 steals per game before the 2019-20 season was suspended in March. The Lakers had the third best defense in the NBA.
