PostSubject: First Quarter Awards   Mon Dec 06, 2010 5:23 pm

First topic message reminder :

* I know not everyone has played 21 games yet, but I won't have time to do this later so I did it now.. and it probably wouldn't change much in the next week. Also, I'm aware that it's too early to pick awards... but these are the awards for the first quarter of the season IMO!

MVP: Deron Williams, Utah Jazz.

He’s probably playing the best basketball of his career so far this season and it’s translating into wins for the Utah Jazz. He has repeatedly dug the Jazz out of deep holes and continues to come up big when the Jazz need him most.

*Other MVP candidates so far: Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks and Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic.


DPOY: Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic

He’s the best defender on the best defensive team [in terms of point allowed] in the league. He’s also one of the better defenders in the league… obviously.

*Other DPOY candidates so far: Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Milwaukee Bucks and Rajon Rondo, Boston Celtics.

MIP: Michael Beasley, Minnesota Timberwolves.

A lot of people were writing him off as a bust after 2 seasons in Miami. But this year, he’s proving that he is the same player people were drooling over when he played in Kansas State. He isn’t getting the rebounds he did in college, but that’s because his teammate Kevin Love is getting all of them. But he is doing a much better job scoring the basketball and he looks comfortable playing basketball again.

*Other MIP candidates so far: Eric Gordon, Los Angeles Clippers.

6th Man: Wilson Chandler, New York Knicks.

He has been a huge spark off the bench for the Knicks and seems to play better off the bench than in the starting line-up. He has done a lot to help the knicks stay in the playoff race early in the season.

*Other 6th Man candidates so far: Jason Terry, Dallas Mavericks and Jamal Crawford, Atlanta Hawks.

ROY: Blake Griffin, Los Angeles Clippers.

No, the Clippers aren’t winning games, but the ROY award is more of a stat award. Blake Griffin has been putting up great numbers and has been making jaws drop around the world with his dunks. John Wall could be here, but he’s missed a few games with injuries and has been a little inconsistent.

*Other ROY candidates so far: John Wall, Washington Wizards.

COY: Gregg Popovic, San Antonio Spurs.

A lot of coaches can be mentioned for this award so far, but I don’t think anyone really expected the Spurs to start off the season THIS good.

*Other COY candidates so far: Monty Williams, New Orleans Hornets, Jerry Sloan, Utah Jazz, Doc Rivers, Boston Celtics.

MVP: I actually would've put Dwight in here had he not missed the couple of games with the flu. Can't go wrong with Deron though....

DPOY: Dwight. Shout-out to KG too as he's seems to be back to his old form.....atleast on defense

MIP: I agree...Beasley

6th man: I would go with Jason Terry because the Mavs have one of the best records right now. And didn't Mike D'Antoni plug Wilson Chandler into the starting lineup a couple of games ago?

ROY: Blake Griffin. He's putting up big numbers consistently. Wall's just been too inconsistent for me...and points off for missing a couple of games. Close race though...no doubt.

COY: IDK. You can go with Greg. You can also go with Tim Thibodeau...no mentioned him....just thought I'd throw him out there...




That's just temporary Chandler in the starting lineup. When Mozgov lost his starting position @ C to Turiaf, Chandler was still on the bench. Turiaf has played well when he's healthy but missed a string of games due to minor injuries. It's during these DNP's that Amar'e is played @ C and Chandler fills in the starting role left by a recooperating Turiaf @ PF. This marks the 3rd time this season Turiaf misses a couple of games. Whenever he comes back in full game form Chandler is placed back on the bench. Terry on the other hand has also started his fair share of games. I've seen Carlisle alternate Terry, Stevenson, and Marion into the starting lineup this season. Chandler has started in 7 games and Terry has started in 5. Both are more than worthy at this point for 6th Man of year. But, Chandler does more than Terry when he's on the court: he rebounds, defends, and gets blocks. Not to mention he's leading sixth men in scoring so far this year.
Terry actually hasn't started since the first few games of the season. Chandler has started the last few games, and Turiaf's health is no guarantee.

Chandler started a few games too due to Gallinari being injured. That's why he has a few starts. Gallinari is the Knicks regular starting SF

lol you're way more off than tony. gallinari and chandler (both) have started the knicks last 6 games. it was turiaf who was injured, as tony said. just don't know if they'll plug him back into the starting lineup when he's healthy, or if he'll stay healthy.

Gallo has played and started in all 23 games this season. He has a nagging wrist injury but has been playing through it never sat out so far. But now Taste you may have jinxed him. You have to get chalk draw a circle on the concrete floor of your sidewalk at 8 paces from your house. Then you have to stand in the circle with a chicken leg or breast taken out of your freezer (let it defrost before you take it with you). And then wipe the uncooked chicken to and fro across your face and neck so the blood gushes through your face. And then chant nonsenical grunts like humpf chalala bingwong gruff piya or something like that while hopping up and down in the circle. That's the only ritual that would undo the curse you put on Gallo.

Sure..How the hell does Wade and Lebron make the list though?
Dirk is probably 1, 2 or 3 in the MVP run right now, how did u miss it?

Gasol has slightly dropped, still better.

Amare is carying the Knicks to a 6 game win streak with 6 30+pt games in a row.

Westbrook slightly worse record than Miami's stucked team with him picking up Durant's sluck.

Kobe same with Gasol.

or maybe Rose and Rondo, both have been playing phenomenal, the one carying in his shoulders the team till Boozer came and the other helping Boston have the 2nd best record in the league even though he missed some games.

Then I'd place Lebron.

The Heat have a stacked team. 15-8 isn't bad but it isn't good either. Imo they have to win 65-70 games to get MVP consideration. But who knows with espn and nba..
