Despite having a top-ten defense and embarrassing the winner of this years Defensive Player of the Year award, Joakim Noah, in the first round of the playoffs, no Wizards players made the NBA 2014 All-Defensive Team.

 

John Wall and Trevor Ariza were the only ones to get votes with Wall receiving 8 Second Team votes and one First Team votes. Ariza received 5 Second Team votes and two First Team votes.

 

The curse of Les Boulez strikes again!
