    Last names are in alphabetical order.

    I too would like to see AD get it too. Without him NO can say no to the postseason. But of course it's going to go to Harden... Unfortunately.

    Remember these are Regular Season Awards, if we're including post season I would change coach of the year to Stevens.

    MVP: Harden
    6th Man: Lou Will
    Most Improved: Victor
    Def Player of the Year: Rudy
    Rookie of the Year: Mitchell
    Coach of the Year: Synder

    No one ever thought that the Jazz after losing Hayward would make it to the playoffs let alone win a series.

    Jerry West on leaving the Warriors: ‘You have to be wanted’

    Press Conference to formally announce Jerry West as consultant to Los Angeles Clippers franchise Monday June 19, 2017 at Playa Vista practice facility. West laughs with media and coach Doc Rivers.

    Last year at this time, Jerry West was on the payroll of the Golden State Warriors. He’d come to the team in 2011 and helped build the transcendental dynasty we know today.

    As we speak, West is on the payroll of the Los Angeles Clippers, a franchise that for 48 years has drifted from raging incompetence to unrequited success, and back.

    A recent New York Times profile of the man they call The Logo confirmed that West is a healthy, ridiculously accomplished, 79-year-old who can golf his age. So why not slip into Bermuda shorts with dark socks and wingtips and watch the hummingbirds buzz around the back yard?

    “I’m not a person that does very well when I don’t have a reason to get up in the morning,” West told the Times.

    OK, let’s put a fine point on this. Why bolt the Warriors for the Clippers?

    “You have to be wanted,” he said. Confessions of a logo.

    During his time with the Warriors, West dispensed wisdom in five-gallon jugs. He was involved. If he had any more input in the recruiting of Kevin Durant he would be known as the Sixth Hampton.

    But West saw what was happening. Bob Myers was promoted to general manager and did what West once did as GM of the Lakers — earn the NBA’s executive of the year award. Twice. West said he harbors no ill will, but it was clear to him that the Warriors’ younger decision-makers had a preternatural feel for what they were doing.

    Thus West was receptive when the Clippers recruited him after his Warriors contract expired. His first season with the Clips was a rough ride. They gave Blake Griffin a five-year, $171 million contract. They traded guard Chris Paul to Houston. The team tanked. They traded Griffin. They currently hold two lottery picks in the upcoming draft.


    West? He’s an interesting study. He was an All-Star all 14 years of his NBA career. But he was on the losing end of eight of the nine NBA Finals in which he competed. He’ll tell you the one title didn’t even begin to soothe the disappointment of the eight defeats.

    I was only kidding. Don't belong to anything affiliated to that and was just able to open it as opposed to you not having it open. Maybe cool is involved. :cool:

    Would be sad to see the TNT brotherhood come to an end...but still interested to see who would fill that seat. Miller? Webber? BD? Fish?

    I nominate Reggie just so he can get out of broadcasting. So tired of him and Marv. It's always a bummer too because these past 2 years or so he's always been paired with my favorite guy Kevin Harlan on the TNT broadcasts during the regular season.

    The Ferengi is just awful, awful. He's not Doug Collins bad, but he's terrible.

    Kenny Smith at least brings sanity with the donut eating mumble rappers that sit on each side of him on that TNT show.

    Get rid of Shaq. Replace him with C-Webb. Hire T-Mac in place of Kenny and voila.

    I'm alright with Kenny. Chuck is just dumb but he's alright for the comedy aspect. Shaq I don't enjoy on that show and agree that C-Webb would be a better fit with EJ, Kenny, and Charles.

    Replacing Shaq with Webber would make the show better. He fit in with the crew when he'd guest on there a few years back.

    You can only have 1 mumble rapper on a crew. 2 is too much.

    This guy really let his wife take the fall.

    She factory reset her phone and then took the fall for him. The investigators basically said: Brian denied everything and we couldn't find proof he did it, but she took full credit for it.
