Hopefully the guys who deserve it will win.

COY: Gregg Popovich
Why? Lead the Spurs to the best record in the NBA while resting his best players the entire season. Who played the most games for the Spurs this season? Patty Milles, Marco Bellineli, and Boris Diaw. Re-read that list again. This is a team that had 17 players start at least one game. No Spur even averaged 30mpg. Parker - 29.4, Duncan - 29.2, Leonard - 29.1. I don't believe it is possible for him to have done a better job preparing his team for the playoffs while simultaneously having a tremendously successful regular season.
Challengers: Thibs, Jeff Hornacek, Dwayne Casey

DPOY: Joakim Noah
Why? Anchored the league's 2nd best defense with very little defensive help outside of Jimmy Butler. He was the true leader on the floor for that team this year and helped propel them into the playoffs.
Challengers: Paul George, Tim Duncan, Roy Hibbert (poor rebounding and limited minutes hurt him)

MIP: Goran Dragic
Why? He went from 14ppg on bad 25 win team with mediocre efficiency to 20ppg on a 48 win with elite efficiency. When Bledsoe went down this team could have went in the tank but Dragic's career year would not let them. Although they fell short of the playoffs, his career year should be recognized as a legitimate sustainable jump to an all-star caliber player.
Challengers: Lance Stephenson, Anthony Davis (!)

MVP: Kevin Durant
Why? Led the Thunder to the #2 seed while missing the team's second best player for a significant amount of time. He has improved his game on both ends (especially his passing/defense) and his scoring carried this team in the dark days of winter.
Challengers - LeBron James but even he conceded.

ROY: Michael Carter-Williams
Why? I believe he leads all rookies in points/assists/rebounds and is also a hound with steals. A weak year for rookies but still a solid campaign by MCW.
Challengers - Victor Oladipo

SMoY: Taj Gibson
Why? Had a career year as well and played a ton of crunch time minutes for the Bulls this season. This is probably the most difficult award to predict.
Challengers - Gerald Green, Jamal Crawford, Manu Ginobili

Love that. Especially the Anthony Davis pick. He had a great year.

COY: #1 Pop, #2 Thibs #3 Hornacek #4 Casey #5 Clifford
DPOY: #1 Noah, #2 Duncan, #3 Hibbert, #4 Bogut, #5 Jordan
MIP: #1 Dragic, #2 Stephenson, #3 Cousins, #4 Gibson, #5 Conely
MVP: #1 Durant, #2 Lebron, #3 Noah, #4 Griffin, #5 Curry
ROY: #1 Carter-Williams, #2 Oladipo
SMoY: #1 Gibson, #2 Green, #3 Morris, #4 Jackson, #5 Crawford

I don't like giving MIP to second or third year players, their progression is expected (especially for players like Cousins & Davis. And I really wish the league would have a Comeback Player of the Year Award for players like Al Jefferson and Kyle Lowry

Really? MCW became just the third player in NBA history to average 16pts 6reb 6ast in his rookie season, the others being Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertson, but he doesn't deserve the award? Just because this year's rookie class was not very good overall, should not diminish the season that MCW put together.
