In full disclosure, I had voted Oklahoma City forward Serge Ibaka for first place, Gasol for second and Howard for third. Miami forward LeBron James finished second, followed by Ibaka and Chicago forward Joakim Noah. The Clippers’ Chris Paul (11th) and Boston’s Avery Bradley (12th) also finished ahead of Howard. “Serge Ibaka with all the stuff he did this year, he should’ve been the guy to win it this year and last year,” said Howard, though the award went last season to New York’s Tyson Chandler. “With the stuff he’s done on the defensive end. I thought he was the clear cut winner. But people saw it otherwise.” Los Angeles Daily News

Heat guard Dwyane Wade believes the NBA went easy on Oklahoma City’s Serge Ibaka for Sunday’s incident in which he hit the Los Angeles Clippers’ Blake Griffin in the groin. Ibaka was fined $25,000 but not suspended. Wade was slapped with a one-game suspension by the league when he kicked Charlotte’s Ramon Sessions in the groin during a Dec. 26 game, costing him about $156,000. Wade believes the two incidents were similar. “I’m not happy,” he told reporters at Wednesday’s shootaround. “It’s not about (Ibaka). I don’t want him to lose out.” Palm Beach Post
