Current All-Defensive First Team
NBA Honors: All-Defensive Teams
The voting panel for the NBA All-Defensive Teams consists of the NBA’s 30 head coaches, who are asked to select All-Defensive First and Second Teams by position.
Two points are awarded to each player for a First Team vote and one point is awarded for a Second Team vote. Coaches are not permitted to vote for players from their own team.
In the case of a tie, both players are considered part of the team, like in 2005-06 with the tie between Kobe Bryant and Jason Kidd in the guard spot.
Tim Duncan, the player with more selections (15) was selected 13 consecutive times for one of these teams, the last one in 2010.
