The excitement of the NBA season is upon us and bold predictions have been made about who will win this seasons awards. Plenty of change in NBA caused for a frenzy in who will win this seasons awards. Here are our predictions on who will take —
Coach Of The Year
Winner: Quinn Snyder, Utah Jazz
Others: Jim Boylen, Chicago Bulls and Alvin Gentry, New Orleans Pelicans
After an off-season that saw the Jazz bring in a capable back court counterpart in Mike Conley. They have also added more offensive weapons so that the whole load is not on the shoulders on Donovan Mitchell. The additions of Mike Conley, Bogan Bogdanovic, Jeff Green and Emmaunel Mudiay will give the Jazz some depth which will be there main I am concerned that they are going to rely on a lot of rookies this season. Which is why I think Snyder will take home the award. He has already been considered before for the award and this will be the year he gets them done.
Sixth Man Of The Year
Winner: Lou Williams, Los Angles Clippers
Others: Derrick Rose, Detroit Pistons
Lou Williams is going to have a great chance of winning this award again based on a few things. One being that everyone already knows that he is one of the best off the bench players in NBA history and is always considered for this award every year. The other factor for Williams is that the Clippers are going to be very good this year with a lot of prime time games. Williams will be a force once again coming off the bench. The only way I can see him losing this award is if Derrick Rose really has a great year and it almost becomes a feel good story for him to win the award.
Most Improved Player
Winner: Aaron Gordon, Orlando Magic
Others: Jaylen Brown, Boston Celtics and Lonzo Ball, New Orleans Pelicans
I have high expectations for the Orlando Magic this season, I think they have a real chance to be a top 4 team in the east. Much of my expected success is because of the year I think Gordon can have. He has improved every year and I think this can be the year he makes the next step and becomes an All-Star. The Magic will be a better team and it will be because of the growth of Gordon. Big things to come for Orlando and Gordon.
Rookie Of The Year
Winner: Zion Williamson
Others: RJ Barrett, New York Knicks and Ja Morant, Memphis Grizzlies
This might be the easiest pick out of all the awards, the only way Zion does not win this award is if he gets injured. There is just too much talent to ignore here and he will have all the opportunities to be successful with the Pelicans. it will also help him that he is given probably one of the better rosters a number one pick has had in recent years, which will allow Zion to not have all the pressure on him in terms of offensive and defensive responsibilities. He will be able to go out there and just play his game.
Most Valuable Player
Winner: LeBron James, Los Angles Lakers
Others: Giannas Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks and Ben Simmons Philadelphia 76ers
To win the MVP now a days you don’t just have to have an unbelievable season but also have a story line to go along with it. James will have that this season as it will be his revenge season after not playing in the postseason last season and missing parts of the season with injury. He will win without being to go to guy in LA. Mainly because the durability of Anthony Davis will be a huge question mark. I don’t think Anthony Davis will play the whole season without a significant injury. This will make way for LeBron to regain the MVP crown.
