Predicted 2011 NBA awards with videos


Although these last four weeks i’ve only followed college basketball, the NBA regular season is nearing a close and awards are soon to come out.  For MVP, Derek Rose is the obvious selection.  Rose has finally become that star player everyone envisioned he would dating back to his days at Simeon high school.  He has led the Bulls to the top spot in a tough Eastern Conference and is currently 7th in the league in scoring at 25 ppg and around 8 assists per game. Those numbers pretty much speak for themselves and saying he is the NBA’s best player is not far from reach. Just take it from Lebron,  Rose is deserving of MVP.

Rookie Of The Year goes to the one and only, Blake Griffin. This, along with MVP, is a pretty obvious selection. Griffen has freakishly set himself into the NBA and categorized himself as one of the most best big men. He probably is the most athletic player and provides the most jaw dropping plays the NBA has seen for awhile. In my opinion, the most important aspect to Blake Griffen is the fact he plays for the LA Clippers. The Clippers and their fans are deserving of a little hope and Griffen certainly provides that.

Coach of the Year goes to Chicago Bulls, Tom Thibodeau. As stated before, Thibodeau and the Chicago Bulls have the best record in the Eastern Conference. The thing I have been most amazed with the Bulls, is that have been able to click as a team all season.  Even with the injury to Carlos Boozer, Chicago found ways to win games at the begging of the year. When Boozer returned, the Bulls didn’t become a different team but a better one. Chicago has been the most surprising team this season and has been great against the NBA’s best teams.

    I'd go with Dorrell Wright for most improved, but that's probably because I'm a Warriors fan!

    Love the most overrated award!

    Chappy,
    I don't think i've even seen a Warriors game this year. It's tough staying up for west coast games in Michigan. Chris Bosh has had some atrocious games this year. The game against Chicago where Bosh got elbowed was hilarious. I don't know, I'm clearly not a huge bosh fan but that didn't look as painful as he made it seem. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reqvz-9C-RY

    Yeah, I feel ya. I wouldn't stay up to watch a team that wasn't all that good most of the time. I like Dorrell because he doubled up his stats in every category (pts, rebs, asts), and led the league in 3pt made!

    Bosh is weak, he's a flopper too. I wonder if Lebron and Wade wish Miami had spent its money on three players instead of spending a crap load on one okay player…

    Don't you think Wright's improvement has mostly is in part to playing in a run and gun offense? I remember when he played for the Heat and he seemed "ok" at best. The award has everything to do with numbers, so its very possible he will. My assessment is that he just fits well in GS offense because he can shoot. True?

    I have to think that Miami wished they dished out money to Felton, Frye, and anyone instead of what they got with Mike Miller and Bosh. That organization really didn't have it planned out as well as everyone thought. I would think that if they had the chance to re-do everything, they sign Wade, Lebron, and find SEVERAL mid-level role players to actually make a decent bench.

      Yeah that might be part of it for Dorrell. Plus, he's getting twice the minutes per game than he did last year. I think I just didn't expect him to be as good as he was this year, and since he was such a surprise, maybe that's why I thought he was most improved…. Someone like Kevin love will win that though, even though he was great at the end of last year!

      I think Pat Riley would love a mulligan!
