In this episode, Sam is joined by Jon Krawczynski and Danny Leroux to break down NBA defensive standouts. On Wednesday, Krawczynski and Josh Robbins published their anonymous coaches poll of who should make the All-NBA defensive team. What did the coaches look for in their conversations with Jon? What were the trends? Did anything surprise them about how the coaches voted? 

Then, I chat with Danny Leroux, and we chat about what we look for when evaluating defenders as public facing analysts. How do we contextualize scheme? How do we look at effort defensively throughout the regular season? Who are some of the best defenders, and what are some of the differences we'd have with the coaches from taking a league-wide view?
