The Warriors' frontcourt set the tone on defense the entire season and were rewarded with NBA All-Defensive team selections per NBA.com's Official Release.

Draymond Green was named to NBA All-Defensive 1st Team had 107 first team votes and 229 total points putting him second overall behind San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard in voting. Green's ability to guard one through five allowed Golden State to switch off of pick-and-rolls. On top of that, Green was one of the best in defending isolation situations via Synergy Sports Tech.

Green's frontcourt mate, Andrew Bogut received 33 first team votes and 102 total points, landing as the center for the NBA All-Defensive 2nd Team. With this selection, Bogut will earn extra incentives. Per Chuck Myron of Hoops Rumors:

Bogut's selection is perhaps most important, since he triggers a bonus worth 15 percent of his nearly $12.973 million salary for this season, giving him approximately $1.946 million in extra pay. It also means his cap hit for next season jumps to $13.8 million instead of $12 million, since the bonus will fall in the category of a likely bonus.

Below are the listed of all players selected to All-Defensive Teams.
