Finally, Andrew Bogut gets his due

After being snubbed for an All-Star nod, Most Improved Player and All-Defensive Team honors, Andrew Bogut was named to the All-NBA Third Team.

The fifth-year center averaged 15.9 points, 10.1 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game this season. Moreover, he was second in the league in DEF (the sum of a player’s blocks, steals and charges) with 3.83. This, along with Tim Duncan’s presence on the All-NBA Third Team as a forward — Duncan was listed as a center on the All-Defensive Team — makes Bogut’s exclusion from the All-Defensive Team all the more perplexing.

Bogut received the 11th most points (149) in the voting, but didn’t receive any First Team votes. Amare Stoudemire finished 10th with 239 points.
