2014 - 2015 Mid-Season NBA Awards

That time of the year again to recognize our top performers halfway in the season.

Let's start with my picks.

MVP - Stephen Curry (GSW)

If we are going by the "Best Player on a top team" narrative that has been the basis for the past years, then the MVP so far definitely goes to Steph Curry. Of course he has a terrific support system, namely his fellow splash brother Klay Thompson, but without a doubt he is the engine that drives the Warriors' offense and he opens up a lot of opportunities for his teammates because of the defense that he attracts.

All-NBA first team:

Steph Curry (GSW)
James Harden (HOU)
Marc Gasol (MEM)
LeBron James (CLE)
Kevin Durant (OKC) / Anthony Davis (NOP)

Second team:

Kevin Durant (OKC) / Anthony Davis (NOP)
LaMarcus Aldridge (POR)
Pau Gasol (CHI)
John Wall (WAS)
Kyle Lowry (TOR)

Third Team

Paul Millsap (ATL)
Klay Thompson (GSW)
DeMarcus Cousins (SAC)
Damian Lillard (POR)
Chris Paul (LAC)

    Defensive Player of the Year: Marc Gasol (MEM)

    While I would be inclined to select Anthony Davis because of stats, they should also translate to team success and the Pelicans are not considered a top defensive team. My nod goes to Marc Gasol, who anchors one of the top defensive teams in the NBA.

    Rookie of the Year - Andrew Wiggins (MIN)

    Because the award is concerned mostly with stats, I give the nod to Wiggins. He also has superstar potential.

    Coach of the Year: Mike Budenholzer (ATL)

    Be honest, before the season started who among you had Atlanta as the number 1 team in the east halfway through the season? I'm guessing none. The Hawks are playing at a high level that reminds us of the San Antonio Spurs' ball movement and defense last year, and they don't have a single superstar in their roster. Credit goes to Greg Poppovich's former assistant coach Bud.

    6th Man of the Year: Isaiah Thomas (PHO)

    IMO the only way he can lose this award is if he, or any of the Suns' PGs gets traded before the deadline.

    Most Improved Player: Jimmy Butler (CHI)

    Butler has emerged from a reliable role player last year to arguably the Bulls' MVP. Like I said in the MIP thread, he is running away with this award. Although, Hassan Whiteside and Draymond Green deserve recognition as well.

    Executive of the Year: Danny Ferry (ATL)

    I do have love for Westbrook, but which among the guards would you take out? I had to snub guys like Conley, J. Butler, Monta Ellis, Teague etc who also deserve to be in these all NBA teams but the reality is, there are just TOO.MANY.GUARDS that if you factor in stats + record, madami talaga ang massnub na players that people will deem are also deserving.

    Thanks! I do this thread every year since 2012.

    You have very good observational skills. Kudos
  • rationalrational PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Pinaka-obvious na award talaga yung COY. So happy for Budenholzer. Tagal din niyang nag-tiyaga as assistant ni Pop.
  • Nakita ko pa lang si KD sa NBA first team :rolleyes:...
    Kung ang title siguro ng thread ay projected awardees baka pa, pero sa dami ng games na wala ni KD considering midseason awards ang thread title parang may mali, just my thoughts....

    KD will make a run till the end of the season though for sure.
  • renaissance11renaissance11 PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ni hindi nga dapat nakasali si durant sa all-star, ilang games ba siya wala? tapos nagwawala pa sa mga mediamen

    definitely davis over him

    Nagrereact ka lang ng ganyan kapag si KD or Kobe eh noh? How about my other picks, do you agree or not? Or ang pinansin mo lang is yung KD to 1st team?

    Relax, it's just my picks. You don't need to make a big deal about it. But fine, you guys are right. Davis over KD folks. I just made a judgement call based on team record pero di nga naman nakakalayo and RW has been OKCs best player.

    What are your picks, taj_2306?
  • jaysonwafuxDjaysonwafuxD PEx Rookie ⭐
    Louuuu as 6th man *okay*
  • deronwilliams08deronwilliams08 PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Yup, Louis Williams should now be the top candidate for 6MOY.

    Nagreact ako kay KD lang kasi agree naman ako karamihan...

    MVP: Steph Curry

    All-NBA first team:

    Steph Curry (GSW)
    James Harden (HOU)

    MIP can be Butler as well but ive seen him that good already since Im a fan of Bulls-Heat rivalry before.

    Im sure KD and Westbrook will make a run and the lowest that they get can get particularly Westbrook is NBA 2nd team.

    I understand your Butler sentiment but Mozgov really? Over Whiteside? Or Draymond Green?
