Something was amiss with Bill Worrell's ballot.

Of the 130 sportswriters and broadcasters who had an official Defensive Player of the Year vote, Worrell, the Houston Rockets' play-by-play announcer for Root Sports Southwest, was alone on a peculiar hill.
Every single ballot, save Worrell's, included Spurs defensive ace Kawhi Leonard. The single absence did not hinder Leonard from taking home his second consecutive Defensive Player of the Year award, but the lone omission was still vexing.
...
For the second season in a row, Worrell was the only voter to list Ariza on his ballot.
...
"I had (Leonard) number one, but apparently it was left off," Worrell said via email.
By the time he supposedly realized his miscue, it was too late - the vote was in.
"I just made a mistake," Worrell said,"I think he's one of top ten players in the league."

BILL WORRELL - ROCKETS PLAY-BY-PLAY

One of the most familiar faces within the Houston sports scene, Bill Worrell's broadcasting career spans more than 37 years. Worrell, who won a Lone Star Emmy in 2011 for best play-by-play announcer, begins his 30th season as the play-by-play announcer for Rockets telecasts. Worrell broke into the television business in 1970 shortly after graduating from the University of Houston, where he attended on a baseball scholarship. His first assignment was with KPRC Channel 2, where he served as sports director from 1974-1980. During that time, he received six "Best Sportscaster" awards from the United Press International and the Texas Association of Broadcasters. Worrell was one of the original employees for Home Sports Entertainment, Houston's first sports cable channel. He signed the network on the air January 3, 1983, with a pre-game broadcast prior to the network's inaugural event, a Rockets home game. Worrell quickly established himself as one of Houston's most versatile sportscasters. He served as an analyst on Houston Astros telecasts from 1985-2004, and has been the TV voice of the Rockets for the past 28 seasons. He has also broadcast play-by-play for the Houston Oilers and a variety of college sports. During his career, Worrell has covered and reported on numerous national sports events, including the Super Bowl, Kentucky Derby, Indianapolis 500, Major League Baseball Playoffs and NCAA Basketball Tournaments. A civic leader as well as broadcaster, Worrell generously donates his time to numerous charities and organizations and serves as master of ceremonies for many events. He currently serves on the Board of My Friends Foundation for at risk children. In 1998, he was awarded Distinguished Alumnus of the University of Houston School of Communication.
