MVP: Amar’e Stoudemire – While many experts are pointing to LeBron James as MVP, James has the help of Ru Paul and Dwyane Wade. STAT brought the Knicks back to the spotlight. Stoudemire threw the Knicks on his back and is willing to carry them, til Melo comes along
Rookie of the Year: Blake Griffin – I tried to give it to John Wall, the PG has a bigger future, but this season belong to Griffin, as far as rookies are concerned.
Defensive Player of the Year: Dwight Howard – What more can be said about Superboy?
Most Improved Player: Russell Westbrook – OKC Thunder’s PG is having a dreamy season. In 2010-11, OKC is his team, not Durant’s.
Sixth Man of the Year: Glen Davis – Big Baby is helping the Celtics anyway he can. Giving up his body, getting charges. He’s making a difference.
Coach of the Year: Gregg Popovich – Either Pop or Jerry Sloan deserve this prize every year. This years, it’s Pop’s. Nobody believed in the Spurs (I did, but… ok…) and they are making noise.
