Kevin Pelton at Basketball Prospectus has released his "Every Play Counts All-Defensive Team" for this year, and gives the Pryzzly Bear an honorable mention at the center spot. This is based on KP2's first hand observations of players and how they play defense, not stats. Good stuff. Here's what he said about Joel: "Joel Przybilla, Portland - For the second straight season, injuries to Greg Oden have helped remind the rest of the league just how valuable Przybilla is defensively. Przybilla's block totals aren't off the charts, but he also doesn't play himself out of position by trying to block every shot in the paint. He's also developed into an excellent taker of charges."
