    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 :doh:.

    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.

    Apparently that's BBen award until Ron-Ron can put in a full season.
    Kobe is a jerk-%%%%%%% and doesn't deserve to be considered with the "decent" people.

    Still Kobe is the best player in the league until 'Bron wants it. The guy makes ridiculous shots, dunks, and has tenacious defense that is top 10 quality on the ball.

    They should change the MVP award to "Most Outstanding Player" so there is no confusion. I could see Nash and Nowitski battling it out for biggest MOP.

    Also, if they are goint to have a DPOY, then why not an OPOY?

    Other suggestions:
    • Best starting 5 ever award
    • Coolest goggles
    • Biggest flopper
    • Least valuable GM
    • Mr. Intangible

    Best starting 5 ever? I'll go with the '73 Knicks...5 Hall-of-Famers, and 4 of the NBA's 50 All-Time Greatest players!

    Its all politics. I knew we would get somethng. I was expecting MVP - Billups and DPY for Ben and COY - Flip. At least we got one.

    I heard or read somewhere that the MVP always goes to one of the top teams recordwise so I knew Lebran would not get it. Kind of figured it might have been Billups, Duncan or Dirk. I did not see Nash comming as its extrmerly rare to win it twice in a row. With Stoudamire it has been amazing that the Suns finished as high as they did.

    GM survey names Ben Wallace first, then, with distance, Bowen and Kirilenko third.

    Kobe should have received the MVP award flat out.

    The award is supposed to recognize what happens ON the court! This man carried the Lakers early. Scored 80+ points in a game; second only to Wilt. Saw a stretch where he averaged 40 ppg. Plays defense and is as unstoppable as they come. He has had a phenomonal season, the likes of it rarely seen.

    Make no mistake, I ain't a Kobe fan and wasn't one long before his "incident" in Colorado. My issue had more to do with the folk he dissed in Philly....but that's another story. Plus I don't like his "personality" such as I know it from TV and all.

    But make no mistake about it. This is one cat who can flat-out ball, and to not give him the award is akin to robbery.

    The Playoff Kobe playing now I would vote for but not the one we seen during the regular season. The reason Nash gets so many votes is because he makes everyone around him better. I didn't even know what a Diaw was before this season. Kobe made no one better during the regular season.....may have even made Odom worse. If he would play next year like he has the past two weeks then I would agree.
