Talk about every NBA except the MVP in here. Basically, discuss the race to the ROY, DPOY, Sixth Man, MIP, Coach of the Year, Sportsmanship Award, All-Star game MVP, Executive of the Year, and NBA Finals MVP.
My favorites for the top five most important awards, imo (ROY, DPOY, MIP, Coach of the Year, and Sixth Man) are:
Krie Irving - Best rookie undoubtedly. He has earned the number one pick of last year's draft. Great shooter, can set up others nicely, and is a good floor leader.
Dwight Howard - He can do it all. Block shots, grab defensive boards, close out the driving lane, etc.
Luol Deng - Much improved from last year. He has been a big factor to the Bulls winning without Rose. Even has the clutch gene which he showed off against Toronto.
Coach of the Year:
Scottie Brooks - Has been a great coach for the Thunder. Can't argue with his record, best in the West, at the moment.
Sixth Man of the Year:
James Harden - Another key to the Thunder's success this year. Is a great impact player, if you will. Has a great stroke for the three point line.
