NBA MVP- Jokic is the MVP but it is razor thin between about 4 guys
Most improved player/breakout star- Julius Randle
Coach of the year- Quin Snyder, most wins in the regular season, totally under the radar. Crowded western conference, and the guy’s never won the award.
ROY- LaMelo Ball, wouldn’t be upset if you gave it to Anthony Edwards, but Ball made a huge impact as a rookie. 15ppg, 6 assists, 6 boards. He did miss 20 games…
Top Shot Highlight dude of the year- Mikal Bridges, this guy posterized more people than FatHead this year.
Fans that deserve the biggest round of applause: Magic fans! Sure, I’m biased…but come on, look @ what they’ve been through. Isaac down, Fultz down, best players traded…and they still showed up to the Amway Center, interacted with us, and all of that. Credit to the Amway Center and the fans for making the gameday experience safe. Hopefully Magic fans will get the winner in this town they deserve…but until then, ((golf clap)).
