Ben Wallace is NBA.com’s DPOY

New, comment

The official Defensive Player of the Year award, voted upon by the media, has yet to be named. However, NBA.com polled the league's general managers, who picked Ben Wallace in a landslide, with Bruce Bowen and Andrei Kirilenko finishing second and third, respectively. Also receiving first-place votes were Kobe Bryant, Alonzo Mourning, Dwyane Wade and Gerald Wallace.
