Pacers' Myles Turner says it's "blatant disrespect" he didn't make All-Defensive Team




 

The NBA's All-Defensive Teams were announced on Wednesday. When it came to the center position, Utah's Rudy Gobert was named to the first team, and Philadelphia's Joel Embiid the second team.

That left Indiana's Myles Turner, the league's leader in total blocked shots last season, off the list. He took to Twitter to vent about that.


His teammates and GM had his back.

Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown says All-Star guard Ben Simmons is "good to go" for the NBA restart after sitting out the final games before the shutdown with a back injury. Brown, whose contract runs through 2021-22, also expected fellow All-Star Joel Embiid to start the season in the best shape of his professional career. The Sixers need their franchise stars at full strength if one of the early favorites to win the East Conference can shake off both an ordinary regular season (39-26; 6th in the East) and a nearly five-month layoff to return contenders for their first NBA championship since 1983.
