    Title is self explanitory.

    Kevin Garnett was named Defensive Player, Hedo Turkaglu was named most improved, Manu Ginobili was named 6th man, and Grant Hill won the Sportsman award.

    Here are my predictions for the rest of the awards:

    Coach of the Year: Byron Scott. HM: Mo Cheeks, Rick Adelman, Stan Van Gundy.

    Rookie of the Year: Kevin Durant. HM: Al Horford, Luis Scola, Thaddeus Young.

    MVP: Kobe Bryant HM: Chris Paul, LeBron James, Kevin Garnett. If any of the first 3 win it, the right man was chosen. It's ridiculous how close these 3 are.

    NBA First Team:
    G)Chris Paul
    G)Kobe Bryant
    F)LeBron James
    F)Kevin Garnett
    C)Dwight Howard

    NBA Second Team:
    G)Deron Williams
    G)Steve Nash
    F)Carlos Boozer
    F)Amare Stoudemire
    C)Tim Duncan

    NBA Third Team:
    G)Tracy McGrady
    G)Baron Davis
    F)Dirk Nowitzski
    F)Paul Pierce
    C)Marcus Camby

    All Defensive First Team:
    G)Chauncy Billups
    G)Kobe Bryant
    F)Kevin Garnett
    F)Shane Battier
    C)Tim Duncan

    All Defensive Second Team:
    G)Rajon Rondo
    G)Ron Artest
    F)Josh Smith
    F)Bruce Bowen
    C)Marcus Camby

    All Defensive Third Team:
    G)Raja Bell
    G)Anthony Parker
    F)Josh Howard
    F)Tayshaun Prince
    C)Dwight Howard

    All Rookie Team:
    G)Mike Conley Jr.
    G)Juan Carlos Navarro
    F)Kevin Durant
    F)Luis Scola
    C)Al Horford

    All Rookie Second Team:
    G)Daequan Cook
    G)Rodney Stuckey
    F)Al Thorton
    F)Thaddeus Young (just over Jamario Moon)
    C)Joakim Noah

    *Not sure if Duncan will count as a PF or C. I've seen other predictions put him there and he obviously plays there a lot so I put him there too. If he's a PF, he'd be a second all NBA and second All Defensive. Kaman would be the Center to replace Duncan on the All NBA team and Tyson Chandler would replace him on the Defensive team.

    Shaquille O'Neal got a second-place vote for Most Improved Player Award.

    I kid you not.

    A couple years ago he got a first place vote. I don't understand some voters logic when voting on this.

    It's the NBA ... the worst of all four major leagues. There is no logic.

    That's nothing. LeBron James got a first-place vote. I want to see who stuck that on their ballot.

    I don't understand why the MVP isn't voted on after the entire season is over. You know, to avoid things like Dirk getting awarded after that diasterous Golden State series last season.

    Marcus Camby made NBA Third Team, but Carmelo NOR AI made it?


    A bucket full of fail, this is.

    In all fairness, centers are hard to come by. Forwards and guards, not so much.
