The NBA All-Defensive Team is an annual National Basketball Association (NBA) honor given since the 1968–69 NBA season to the best defensive players during the regular season. The All-Defensive Team is generally composed of ten players in two five-man lineups, a first and a second team. Voting is conducted by a panel of 123 writers and broadcasters.[1] Prior to the 2013–14 NBA season, voting was performed by the NBA head coaches, who were restricted from voting for players on their own team.[2][3] The players each receive two points for each first team vote and one point for each second team vote. The top five players with the highest point total make the first team, with the next five making the second team. In the case of a tie at the fifth position of either team, the roster is expanded. If the first team consists of six players due to a tie, the second team will still consist of five players with the potential for more expansion in the event of additional ties. Ties have occurred several times, most recently in 2013 when Tyson Chandler and Joakim Noah tied in votes received.

Tim Duncan holds the record for the most total selections to the All-Defensive Team with 15.[4] Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant follow with twelve total honors each, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has eleven total selections. Michael Jordan, Gary Payton, Garnett and Bryant share the record for most NBA All-Defensive first team selections with nine. Scottie Pippen, Bobby Jones, and Duncan made the first team eight times each. Walt Frazier, Dennis Rodman and Chris Paul made the All-Defensive first team seven times.[4]

Thirteen players born outside the jurisdiction of the United States, plus two players born in U.S. insular areas (territories), have made either the first or second All-Defensive Team—Manute Bol, born in a part of Sudan that is now the independent nation of South Sudan; Hakeem Olajuwon of Nigeria; Patrick Ewing of Jamaica; Dikembe Mutombo of the Democratic Republic of the Congo; Andrei Kirilenko, born in the portion of the former Soviet Union that is now Russia; Anderson Varejão of Brazil; Thabo Sefolosha of Switzerland; Duncan and Raja Bell of the U.S. Virgin Islands; Luol Deng, a naturalized citizen of the United Kingdom born in what is now South Sudan; Serge Ibaka, born in the Republic of the Congo and naturalized in Spain; Marc Gasol, born and primarily raised in Spain; Rudy Gobert of France; Giannis Antetokoumpo of Greece; and Joel Embiid of Cameroon. Ewing, Olajuwon, and Kirilenko are naturalized U.S. citizens, and Duncan and Bell are U.S. citizens by birth, but they are still considered international players by the NBA because they were not born in one of the fifty states or Washington, D.C.[5][6]

When the coaches were responsible for voting, there were occasionally inconsistencies between the All-Defensive Team and the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award, which has been voted on by the media. On four occasions, the Defensive Player of the Year winner was not voted to the All-Defensive first team in the same year. Player of the Year winners Alvin Robertson in 1986, Dikembe Mutombo (1995), Tyson Chandler (2012), Marc Gasol (2013) were instead named to the second team.[7]

Contents Selections Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, formerly known as Lew Alcindor, has been on 11 All-Defensive teams. Walt Frazier is the only player to have been on all of the first seven All-Defensive first teams. Patrick Ewing is the only Jamaican-born player to have been on an All-Defensive team. Dennis Rodman has been on the All-Defensive first team seven times. Scottie Pippen has made the All-Defensive first team eight consecutive times, from 1991–92 to 1998–99. Gary Payton has the record for the most NBA All-Defensive first team selections consecutively, with nine, from 1993–94 to 2001–02. Dikembe Mutombo, who has won four NBA Defensive Player of the Year Awards, has been selected into the All-Defensive first and second team three times each. Tim Duncan is the all-time record holder for most All-Defensive team selections (15). Kobe Bryant has made a total of 12 All-Defensive teams, more than any other guard. Ben Wallace, who has won four NBA Defensive Player of the Year Awards in five years, has been selected into the All-Defensive first team five times in six selections. ^ Denotes players who are still active in the NBA * Denotes players inducted to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Player (X) Denotes the number of times the player has been selected Player
