With the season tipping off tomorrow, let’s talk preseason NBA Awards..

MVP - LeBron James
Back-to-back MVPs for Bron Bron.

Rookie of the Year – Blake Griffin
His work ethic along with that talent will ensure he’s no Michael Beasley.

Most Improved - Anthony Randolph
If he can stay healthy, he could make a huge leap this year.

Comeback Player of the Year - Gilbert Arenas
I’m not convinced he’ll last the whole year, but if he does he should win this award in a landslide.

Sixth Man of the Year – Lamar Odom
Mr. Kardashian can do it all for the Lakers.

Defensive Player of the Year – Dwight Howard
Howard is such a beast on defense.

Coach of the Year - Jerry Sloan
If his team can stay healthy, Sloan can win the long overdue award.

    I drafted Griffin in the 5th round so I’m hoping your right. Great note on Arenas, I don’t think he’ll last the entire season either.

    He broke his kneecap Les, off to a great start in fantasy basketball. I drafted Oden his rookie year too. Looks like the beginnings of a Daddy Sports curse lol
