Marcus Smart ‘Honored’ By All-Defensive Nod But Focused On Greater Goal

The 25-year-old was named to the NBA’s All-Defensive First Team on Wednesday for the first time in his career, leading all guards with 63 voting points. Smart received an outpouring of support on social media following the milestone, leading him to thank fans with a little twist.

His teammates were out in full support after the All-Defensive teams were released, with Al Horford and Jayson Tatum leading the charge.

Horford is right. Well-deserved indeed.
