Hoop Diaries with Jeremy Fitch
By Jeremy Fitch: NBA Media Member
I know I am not the only one excited to see the new NBA awards show on TNT.
If I had to compare it to something my guess is that it is going to be a little more serious than the ESPYS.
Also with my favorite music artist Drake as the host, I see no way of being disappointed.
Alright I will stop stalling, these are my picks for the 2017 NBA Award show.
Best Style: Russell Westbrook
While I am more of a Dwade style fan myself, I have to pay my respects to Westbrook this season as he is certainly the style king.
Assist of the Year: Draymond Green and Steph Curry
Although the passing king Chris Paul was in this catagory as well, there is no question to me that Draymond to Steph, finished off with the ally to KD was the pass of the year.
Block of the Year: Hassan Whiteside
When you just reach up and grab a ball out of mid air there is not much to discuss.....next subject.
Dunk of the Year: Larry Nance Jr.
Really the only highlight for the team out in L.A. this season, but one thing is for sure they have a young core and we will have to wait and see what happens this summer.
Game Winner of the Year: Kyrie Irving
While there were great options for this selection, there has to be something said for having the game winner on Christmas on the rematch against the Warriors.
Performance of the Year: Devin Booker
Again, another catagory with a toss up of who should win this award. I am handing my vote to Devin Booker for his 70 point performance.
The most points ever scored against the Boston Celtics along with it being a year to the day of Kobe giving him advice and a signed pair of kicks?
