Draymond Green, the linchpin of the Golden State Warriors' championship defense, was named Defensive Player of the Year Monday night. Throughout the entire National Basketball Association season, the conversation had been between those two defensive stars, and Green bested Gobert in the voting numbers.

In addition, Beverley averaged 1.48 steals, helping the Rockets rank fourth in the league in turnovers forced (opponents 15.1 tpg). He added a sixth consecutive season to that accomplishment on Monday. Paul was previously named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team in 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2009 and was also named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team in 2011 and 2008.

CNN retracts story about supposed Russian meeting
Jon Passantino at Buzzfeed reported on Sunday a crackdown on CNN reporting on Russian Federation to prevent future mistakes. The story had been quickly questioned both internally and externally, including by the conservative site Breitbart News .

This is Green's first time making an All-Defensive Team.

Green also earned a spot on this year's NBA All-Defensive First Team accumulating more points (198) and First Team votes (99) than any other player in the league. Wall led all point guards with 49 blocks last season. He is one of four players in Spurs history with at least 350 steals and 350 blocks in his career.

CNN journalists resign over retracted story
Rather, it meant that 'the story wasn't solid enough to publish as-is, ' one of the people briefed on the investigation said. Scaramucci applauded the retraction , calling it a "classy move" as he accepted their apology.

And for constantly facing opposing teams best players, which in many cases are point guards, it's fair to say the gunslinger is known equally for both his sharp shooting and derailing defense. Yet, Miami wasn't represented on either of the league's two All-Defensive teams.

San Antonio reached the Western Conference Finals in its first season without Duncan, who retired last July.

AC Milan yet to receive offers for Gianluigi Donnarumma, confirms club chief
Real Madrid are said to be very interested in the 18-year-old, while Manchester United have also been linked with a move. However, the agent took to Twitter , himself, this morning to deny the reports.

The Warriors' 6-foot-7 Swiss Army knife ranked first in steals and 12th in blocks, but his true impact could be seen when digging deeper. Green will go extended stretches matching up with and containing bigger and stronger centers.
