2016-2017 NBA Awards selection

This NBA season has been fantastic from start to finish. Records are broken left and right as players from across the league have stepped their game up. This has made the race for the annual NBA awards tighter than ever.

Here are my favorites for each 2016-2017 NBA award:


Most Improved Player: Giannis Antetokuounmpo

Milwaukee Bucks Giannis Antetokuounmpo has officially certified himself as a legitimate superstar with his amazing play this season. His level of play has sky rocketed this season as every single one of his core stats has risen which has elevated him to being considered one of the best small forwards in the NBA. Runner Up: Isaiah Thomas


Sixth Man of The Year: Eric Gordon

Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon should manage to edge out competition such as Andre Iguodala and Zach Randolph. He has been the perfect compliment to James Harden when he comes off the bench knocking down three pointers. Gordon is no one trick pony as he has shown he is more than capable of driving to the basket as well. Runner Up: Andre Iguodala


Rookie of The Year: Malcom Brogdon

The former 2nd round pick, Malcom Brogdon, has spent the season exceeding expectations in Milwaukee. Brogdon leads all rookies in assists and steals per game and is second among rookies in points per game for the sixth seed Bucks. Runner Up: Joel Embiid


Defensive Player of The Year: Draymond Green

Draymond Green is my pick for DPOY by a narrow margin. In a tight race the slight edge goes to Green because of his versatility. As the anchor of the Warriors defense, Green’s ability to guard multiple positions separates him from the pack. Runner Up: Rudy Gobert


Coach of The Year: Mike D ‘Antoni

What D ‘Antoni has done with the Houston Rockets is utterly remarkable! He has coached to the strength of his team making the Rockets one of the best offensive teams in the NBA. His offensive system has elevated the play of superstar James Harden and has given the Rockets the third best record in the NBA. Runner Up: Steve Kerr


Most Valuable Player: Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook has had an amazing season and it seems like he’s on the road to winning the MVP award. Shockingly the 6’3 inch point guard has averaged the coveted triple double which has catapulted him into NBA history. Westbrook has put the team on his back and has led them to the playoffs through his clutch play. Runner Up : James Harden
