NBA Awards

Instead of just spouting my own NBA Award choices this year, I decided to present a united front in the voting and get a few ODC writers to contribute in a voting process. It turned out great, with the exception of one or two awards, and a few general themes popped up that I think actually mimic the real voting process (namely, a few of our writers apparently don’t watch basketball). Regardless, I’ve tailored my article to reflect The ODC’s voted winner, not just my own choice.

I also decided to ignore that two awards have been announced already. Yup, I dropped the ball getting these out on time but whatever, I do what I want.

How did we determine the winners? Well, everyone got to rank their top-5, with #1 getting 10 points, #2 getting 5, and then 3, 2, 1 for 3, 4, 5, respectively. If people did not rank a top-5 (top-3 or, in Stu’s case for Defensive Player of the Year, one), nobody got the points for empty spots, which may be a flaw in the voting system (one of many, I’m sure). The voters were Trevor Smith, Ian Cass, Alex Jackson, Stu Wilkinson, Jack Forsayeth, Chris Pope, Kevin Smith, Alex Syder, Alex Pennycook, and myself.
