For a second season in a row, Warriors' Draymond Green (44 first-place votes, 421 points) finished runner up to Spurs' Kawhi Leonard (84 first-place votes, 547 points) for Defensive Player of the Year. Like last year, Green was left off several DPoY ballots. 

During the last season, Green was left off 42 ballots – this year, he was left off nine ballots. Even if Green had won all 9 ballots as first-place votes (5 points each), he still would have come in second. 

However, fans think Draymond was snubbed, arguing he guards against multiple positions. Was he snubbed?

Kawhi Leonard is a steller defensive player. There's a reason he has won two years in a row. He's only the second player to win that title back-to-back.

But some fans still feel like Draymond got left out in the cold.

Most agree Draymond has more versatility as a defensive player.
