Should veteran Boston Celtics point guard Marcus Smart be in the 2023 Defensive Player of the Year race?

Voter fatigue is not something that just impacts who wins each season’s Most Valuable Player award, it also affects most of the NBA’s regular-season awards. And that might make veteran Boston Celtics point guard Marcus Smart’s chances to repeat with the award even harder than it already is for a guard to take home that particular piece of hardware.

That begs the question of whether the Flower Mound native deserves to be in the 2023 Defensive Player of the Year race based on his play so far this season. The folks over at the “First to the Floor” podcast discussed at length with serial Marcus Smart supporter Dan Greenberg on as a guest.

Take a look at the clip embedded below to get their takes on where Smart ought to be in the DPoY race this season, why his haters are wrong, and plenty more to boot.
