These are from the NBA GM Survey. I doubt the official results will be any different. Coach of the Year Avery Johnson (official) Most Valuable Player Steve Nash Rookie of the Year Chris Paul Defensive Player of the Year Ben Wallace Sixth Man Award Mike Miller Most Improved Player Boris Diaw Executive of the Year Elgin Baylor Which of these don't belong? Steve Nash, Michael Jordon, Tim Duncan, Karl Malone, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Moses Malone, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Dr J. Guys with at least 2 MVP awards. The problem is, who was a better choice? Make a case for Bron, Kobe, Chauncey, etc, but Steve Nash undoubtedly was a large part of a potentially .500 team winning 50 games with a bunch of scrubs (exception: Marion). Actually LeBron did it too and probably deserved it more, but a 21 year old MVP makes me more upset . It's kind of sad what a joke some of the season awards have become. It's in some ways a matter of "Well, there's no one better, might as well pick him". I don't want to diss on Ben, but it's similar to the DPOY award. This confirms everybody [strike]thinks[/strike] knows Bowen is dirty, so who could possibly dethrone Ben? God love em, but is Ben really among the all time defensive greats, does he deserve to be in the Hall of Fame? An MVP that doesn't play defense, a DPOY that doesn't play offense? This also boosts the NBA Finals MVP up in terms of meaning as well, most people already think more of the MVP of the Finals anyway, but Steve Nash two time MVP kinda kills any respect the award had.
