Pistons center Ben Wallace won the NBA's Defensive Player of the Year award for the third time in four years Monday.

Wallace, who was presented with the award at an afternoon news conference, joins Dikembe Mutombo as the only two players to win the award three or more times.

Like he was blocking a shot, Wallace deflected credit to his teammates.

"I wish we could divide this up and give a piece to everybody," he said.

Wallace also won it in 2002 and 2003. Mutombo won in 1995, 1997, 1998 and 2001.
