I'm usually against voting for 2nd year players for most improved (because they should be expected to improve the most) otherwise it would hands down be Anthony Davis.

DeAndre Jordan, DeMarcus Cousins, Arron Afflalo or Lance Stephenson for me.

DPOY Lebron? Yikes. It would be an uphill battle to argue he's been average on that end.

ROY and MVP aren't debates, but it's interesting to see the 6th Man and DPOY picks. I'd probably take Crawford on his 4th quarter play alone, and Hibbert anchoring the leagues top D is probably the right choice there.

Nick's been good. Similar role to Jamal, but with Crawford you get the added benefit of some playmaking duties when they need him.

Manu's been solid this season too.

x2. LBJs getting kobe treatment. lbj doesn't even deserve a spot on the first team this year, reputations aside. now all the LBJ fans can stop complaining about Kobes defensive first teams, LBJ is about to start racking just as many that he doesn't deserve.

Which SF is a better defender than LeBron in the NBA?

This year? Durant, Iggy and Deng easily. Have to think a little more on others, but I'm sure there's 3 or 4 more. Him and the Heat's D has been slightly above average at best. Hell Draymon Green's D has been better.

If you look at his Synergy stats it shows us that in iso D opponents are averaging 0.95 PPP. That isn't good. Ranks 147th. KD on the other hand is holding opponents to 0.50 PPP in iso. 5th in the NBA for all players.

I agree with that. Could've made the argument for last year too in terms of that & where he finished in DPOY voting.

he has been above average for sure, but his back issues, and the fact that he is coasting SHOULD knock him off 1st team all defense. But remember how many Kobe made?

we can stop complaining after Bron makes like 4 more without deserving it haha. Cmon dude, you know I am right.

01-20-2014, 10:47 PM
I wouldn't have a problem with Bron getting a couple donation awards, he should have 2 more defensive teams than he currently has. And yeah, Kobe rode that rep for about half a decade in the awards voting.

LeBron's defense this year has been his worst in the last 5 years. There's no way he's getting close to winning DPOY. He'll likely get on the ALL-NBA team, but he has had a bad year, not just by his standards but in general he has not been very good.

I think that Ibaka is overrated defender. He is great help defender (big block/goaltending ratio tho) but he is not good man to man defender in the post

MVP : Three Man Race between PG / LBJ / KD it's so close I can't really pick but I honestly might pick George based on record .

ROTY : MCW

6th : Nick Young would be my choice if Kobe comes back and plays enough games

DPOTY : Hibbert , I think Noah might come in 2nd or 3rd . I still think Noah should have gotten it last year over Gasol . Noah makes 1st team all defense over Gasol but doesn't win the DPOTY . Puzzled

Coach : Vogel will prob win it

Most improved : Ant Davis

Sixth Man of the Year: Manu

COY: Hornacek
Most Improved: Anthony Davis


Notes:

1. Durant is the obvious MVP. LeBron is the only other person who should be getting votes, in my opinion...but I care more about individual play than most do. PG isn't close to being in the other two's class. Don't get to cute with it. PG over Aldridge if anything, but nah.
2. If you have George over Hibbert for your DPOY you're just wrong. Period. Opinions are fine, but you can still be wrong about it
3. 6th man usually sorts itself out better. Not totally in love with the Manu pick, just seemed to make the most sense now
4. MCW pretty easily. So happy that he's playing well, all things considered. My favorite (not saying he'll be the best) of all the rookies by quite some margin
5. Hate picking COY. My heart's not too into this either. A bunch of guys have a strong claim, and it's always the award that's hardest for me to pick
6. Don't like giving it to sophomore, but he's turned into a star
