John Henson and Anthony Davis are the two frontrunners for the NABC Defensive Player of the Year award, but a whole slew of other elite defenders could earn it, too.
Since the award's inaugural year in 1987, only one freshman (Greg Oden) and one mid-major player (Kenneth Faried) have collected the hardware. Davis looks to become the second freshman Defensive POY while the likes of C.J. McCollum and Kent Bazemore strive to follow in Faried's footsteps.
So, who are the top contenders for the award?
