Of course, the most important is an NBA title ...but, I think we have the trifecta.
MVP, COTY, EOTY, AND 6TH MOTY.
That's right. The Grand Salami.
Yes, we do. But will the media recognize it? We'll see.
Won't be surprised if we win NONE. LOL
EOTY to Les?
Don't forget DPOY to Beverley.
I'll give COY to Spo he really deserves it....
Everything else is ours.
Rockets gonna get Leo'd.....or Susan'd, depending on what you're into.
I think Gordon and/or Williams for the 6th man is a lock at this point. The other we will see, but i feel like Morey (or Les? Lul) has a really good chance to win it.
MVP seems like it'll be more and more a battle between James and Westbrick at this point, the COTY i'd say it's between MDA and Snyder.
DM on EOTY.
The only "lock" is SMOTY.
Don't think any others are locks or favorites.
As said above, I'd give it to Erik Spoelstra.
idk about 6th moty... i heard Eric Gordon sucks and that Lou Williams is hot garbage... lol
Giving the COY to a guy who's team is currently a game under .500 with only 13 games left to play and fighting to make the playoffs? Not too sure about that one. He's done a nice job, but COY nice? No way. Scott Brooks/Mike D'Antoni/Gregg Popovich/Brad Stevens battle for me. Harden wins MVP and Morey 'should' win EOY, but I could see that somehow not happening.
Yes, they are 34-35 & currently 7th in the east.
Not COY nice? I would say look at that roster & then get back to me.
and of course Dragic & Whiteside.
You haven't heard of half of these guys and the HEAT are winning with them.
A team that was 11-30 in the middle of January, the unlikeliest 13-game win streak & has gone 23-5 since & are now 34-35?
Not COY nice?
Doc Rivers won his 1st COY by guiding an Orlando Magic squad that was suppossed to be 1 of the worst teams in the league to 41 wins. What Spoelstra has done is absolutely COY worthy. That team started out 11-30 and is now 7th in the East with a 34-35 record. They have beaten numerous good teams, and it's not like their team is even that talented. Their turnaround has been amazing.
Bob Myers probably gets EOY on the (stupid) basis that "he brought in Durant so he's the best executive".
Even though some solid cases can be made for the Rockets to get ALL those awards, I doubt it will happen. Might see voter fatigue here. All 3 of of those awards to the same team that is #3 in the West?
Yeah, for whatever reasons, Daryl has never done well in EOY voting.

Exception to the rule here, my man, but I get your point. I know he's done a remarkable job! I just don't think he's quite on the same level as the others I mentioned for the year. Still yet, he's absolutely proven himself as an elite coach, without question. Miami has a good one.
