Cavs: The Blog’s Awards Ballot

April 13th, 2010 by John Krolik

Because, like LeBron, I need a bit of rest before the playoffs start, here’s my quick awards ballot:

Most Valuable Player:

1. LeBron James (duh)

2. Dwight Howard (I can’t help but think of MVP candidates relative to LeBron, and Dwight is the only player who could have any kind of argument to win over LeBron)

3. Kevin Durant

Defensive Player of the Year:

1. Dwight Howard

2. Gerald Wallace

3. Andrew Bogut

Rookie of the Year:

1. Stephen Curry (I’m big on scoring efficiency, but Tyreke will be better down the line)

2. Tyreke Evans

3. Brandon Jennings

6th Man of the Year:

1. Anderson Varejao

2. Jamaal Crawford

3. Manu Ginobili

Coach of the Year:

1. Jerry Sloan

2. Scott Skiles

3. Scott Brooks

Most Improved Player:

Like Pelton, I’m abstaining on voting for this one because the criteria is too muddled. Kevin Durant has improved more than any other player, though.
