Marcus Honored On All NBA Defensive Second Team
(FortCollins-CO) The Denver Nuggets center Marcus Camby has been selected to the All-NBA Defensive Second team. Camby was a legitimate candidate for Defensive Player of the Year in many voters' eyes due to leading the NBA in block shots at 3.3 per game and posting career highs in rebounding and steals. Marcus was snaring boards at a rate of 11.9 and swiping 1.4 steals per game. Marcus Camby also averaged 12.8 points per outing and if it weren't for injuries he might have been even better. The Nuggets are going to be heavily reliant on Camby next year to produce like numbers, if their quest for second round playoff action is ever going to come to fruition.
