No but if they did it would look like this IMO:

Player- Dirk
Rookie- Casspi
Improved- Marc Gasol

Wouldn't be a bad idea at all in my opinion. It could help the league's popularity outside of the States and wouldn't really cost anything.

THOSE awards DO EXIST already.

The french sports newspaper L.equipe gets them with votes form european coachs.

They already have awards for that its called the MVP and Rookie of the year they can win it to so they dont need to be handing all this other crap out.

Wow, your contribution to this tread is overwhelming. Would love to hear your reason why.

Why would anyone be against this? Does it tarnish the validity of the other awards? No. Heck the MVP award has always been a bit of a joke anyways. Kobe and Shaq have only won the award once each:crazy:. I'm all for this as it would create more global exposure which will only help in expanding the game thus more lucrative tv deals and revenue for the league. Now what would be wrong with that?
