Who are your sleepers to win the NBA Awards this year?
MVP Sleeper: Brandon Roy
I'll have more in a bit .
Rookie of the Year Sleeper: Jordan Hill
Can win it is if the Blazers have the first or maybe second best record in the NBA. Also, add a healthy Gilbert Arenas to the list...I think he will suprise some people.
MVP- Carmelo Anthony
ROY- Brandon Jennings
DPY- Dwayne Wade
MIP- Chris Douglas Roberts
sleeper for defensive player of the year Dwayne Wade
2008-2009 2.19 steals per game, 1.34 blocks per game
MVP: Chris Paul
ROY: Toney Douglas..think about it
MIP - Larry Hughes
Rose will NOT be MVP .
He may not even be an all star .
6th man sleeper- Chris Anderson
Last year was his first full year back after the suspension, he he continues to block 2.5 shots per and ups his points and rebounding averages as he re-adjusts back to the NBA game I think he could be in contention
You dont think Derrick Rose will ever be an all-star???
i meant this year .
rookie sleeper-Jordan Hill
6th man-Kevin Love
coach of the year- Jerry Sloan(he should have one already)
It said even, my bad. I thought it said ever....haha
haha, i thought "he probably thinks i said ever"
I know we've been over this numerous times, but I think Rose will be an all-star next year. I see 20 points, 8 assists, 5 rebounds and becoming one of the best pg's in the league. I think he and Arenas will be the two best pg's in the east next year.
I think if he scores 20 ppg he'll have around 6 apg.
I predict 18-7 for Rose, and doesnt get in.
He's at best the 4th PG in the east right now .
Yea I do think Rose will be an all-star, but Rondo may make me eat my words. Im beginning to think Del Negro will revamp his playbooks and run things better suited for Rose, which will make his numbers better. He also will be a great defender in the very near future.
all have a better chance IMO
Jameer Nelson and Mo Williams made the all-star game last year based on only team success
Devin Harris made it solely because hes a good player, despite being on a bad team
The Bulls are a "slightly below average team" in my opinion, and better than all 3 of the guys i mentioned above, I dont see why he cant make the all-star team
Not to mention Allen Iverson might not even be in the east this season, so thats 1 less person to compete with it
MVP - Don't know if he qualifies and a sleeper but I'm going with Wade
MIP - Amir Johnson
ROY - Brandon Jennings
COY - Jay Triano
6th man - Jamal Crawford
DPY - LeBron James
ROY- gerald henderson
MIP- danillo gallinari
6th man- jamaal crawford but manu is sleeper no1 talkin bout him
llperez isn't love starting at the 4?
D-Wade's gonna win MVP and DPY in the same year!
aarondsonixfan-Possibly, which is why I said sleeper. Love didn't start alongside Jefferson last year because they don't complient each other well defensively. Plus, they are both kinda slow which doesn't translate well to the transition game. I think there is a chance that Ryan Hollins, who really showed signs last year, might start alongside Jefferson. He is an athletic 7 foot shot blocker who runs like a dear. He should really compliment either Jefferson or Love and thus might be the starter. It was just a wild guess more then a prediction since it said sleeper picks.
haha i can actually see wade winning mvp and dpy next year.. that would be awesome.
MVP: Kevin Durant, if they make the playoffs and leads the league in scoring while upping his rebounds, assists, rebounds, and defense i could see it happening.
MIP: Amir Johnson
6th man: Lamar Odom
ROY: james johnson
MVP-Arenas would be a sleeper
ROY-Since Griffin is the heavy favorite i go with flynn
Def-Trevor Ariza, he's all over the place
Most improved-Corey Brewer, long shot but i got faith
