NBA Awards Predictions

Our very own Brandon Taylor and Calvin Kamrath give their takes on who’s taking home the hardware this season…

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR:

BT: Ben Simmons

CK: Are we asking who it is? Or who it should be? If it’s the later, it’s Donovan Mitchell hands down. When the Jazz lost Gordon Hayward, everyone expected the Jazz to fall back into mediocrity. Mitchell kept them relevant and gives them hope for the future.

But Ben Simmons is gonna win.

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR:

BT: Rudy Gobert

CK: With Embiid missing 19 games, Gobert gets the ✔

COACH OF THE YEAR:

BT: Brad Stevens

CK: How is it not Brad Stevens? Could really only argue Snyder here.

MOST IMPROVED PLAYER:

BT: Victor Oladipo

CK: Vic Oladipo

MVP:

BT: James Harden

CK: The Beard only because the fans are bored with LeBron winning each year.
