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?

The numbers are what they are.
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.
