2009-10 NBA Lester Awards
Happy Birthday Jake!
Time to hand out the basketball hardware.
MVP - LeBron James
I’m bitter that he left me hanging in the fantasy playoffs, but he was amazing this year.
Rookie of the Year – Tyreke Evans
Stephen Curry was close, but some of his ridiculousness was due to the system he plays in. Evans 20-5-5 season was historic as only Oscar Robinson, Michael Jordan, and LeBron James were able to accomplish the feat.
Most Improved - Kevin Durant
When you go from good to passing Kobe as the game’s best player not named LeBron, you made a big leap.
Comeback Player of the Year - Carlos Boozer
I considered Monta Ellis, but his team was junk.
Sixth Man of the Year – Jamal Crawford
Turned out much better than I anticipated.
Defensive Player of the Year – Dwight Howard
In a class by himself defensively.
Coach of the Year - Mike Woodson
Atlanta may be the 2nd best team in the East without a superstar.
NBA First Team
NBA Second Team
NBA Third Team
Those are my picks. What changes would you make?
