LeBron James isn’t happy with finishing second in voting for the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year award for the second time in his decorated career.
“It sucks,” James said Thursday as he prepared for Game 3 of the Miami Heat’s first-round playoff series against Milwaukee. “It definitely sucks, though, finishing second. Who wants to finish second?”
Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol beat out James for the award after receiving 212 points and 30 first-place votes among a panel of media members and analysts. James finished with 149 points and 14 first-place votes.
James stopped short of criticizing Gasol’s defensive merits, but the Heat star said he probably put together the best defensive effort of his career this season
