We've talked about all the other award categories at length, but not DPOY - which this year will be a lot less of an obvious winner than in years past. Last year's winner Natasha Howard got off to a slow start and her stats dramatically decreased from last season so it won't be her. Previous winners Sylvia Fowles and Brittney Griner played only partial seasons this year, taking them out of the running. Alana Beard of course retired. So we're all but assured to get someone new this year, but the question is, who?

I don't know for sure what categories they look at, but I'm guessing the major ones taken into consideration include Defensive Rebounds per game (DRPG), Steals per game (SPG), Blocks per game (BPG), and Defensive Win Shares (Def WS) - probably amongst other ones.

The likely candidates, with notable stats listed:

Alysha Clark: Led League in Def WS (.220), 1.5 SPG

Napheesa Collier: 6.3 DRPG, 1.8 SPG, 1.3 BPG

Candace Parker: Led League in DRPG (8.0), 1.2 SPG, 1.2 BPG, .163 Def WS

Breanna Stewart: 7.3 DRPG, 1.7 SPG, 1.3 BPG, .205 Def WS

Alyssa Thomas: Led League in SPG (2.0), 7.2 DRPG, .171 Def WS

Brianna Turner: 6.4 DRPG, 1.95 BPG, 1.1 SPG

A'ja Wilson: Led League in BPG (2.0), 7.0 DRPG, 1.2 SPG, .174 Def WS

Hope I'm not missing anyone obvious! Poll will run through Saturday.

Man, f*** all this f***ing horsesh*t (no, yeah, for sure [RIP RBG])

It's CP for me , the progression from how her defense use to be and her rebounding effort til now deserves recognition . Give Princess the award yall Laughing Laughing Alysha Clark in a close 2nd. ESPN /WNBA is not going to let the princess leave awardless after the effort she gave in the bubble Laughing Laughing Is she the best defender in the league ? HELL NO , but shes Candace Effin Parker !
