Alvin Robertson? Do you know why they gave him the DPOY, but didn't put him on First Team All-D?
Good job...actually, it's happened twice, I actually missed Robertson.
Also, Dikembe Mutombo was DPoY in 1995, and only made 2nd team all defense.
The reason for the discrepancy is because the All-Defensive teams are selected by the coaches of the NBA, whereas the DPoY is an award that is voted on by the writers and broadcasters of the league.
In checking the lists, I missed Robertson in 1986.
1986 NBA standings, playoff results, leaders and awards.
