Oh, welcome back to the second stream of the day.
We're just gonna be doing some one month into the N v a season awards.
Uh, one month marker was two days ago yesterday.
Um, I just being a month into the season where to go and be a M v p defensive player of the year, uh, Coach of the year's thus far.
So just ah, it's tweet Ling Thio and that there will be underway.
Okay, so for the M v P will start with.
That's the one that everyone likes the most Right now in the top four banded are LeBron James James Harden, Janos Andrew Cohen, Luca dancing, which is wild.
So we'll start from who I have.
Um, 4th 3rd 2nd and first I've looked at Don such forth.
His team's 11 and five, if he's putting up a near triple doubles, had another 40 point game today youngest player ever to have a 40 point triple double.
Um, our second youngest of the Brown James was technically the youngest, but the two, uh, under 21 years old ever do that.
Uh, he has five losses to against the next, which are weird, wacky losses as bad because the next terrible my ****ing next.
Um CIA, he's putting a historic numbers.
He's averaging 29 10 and nine, uh, shooting the lights out.
Get into the line making, um, Chris.
Is that a better Cliff team's winning? It took another leap forward.
Drastically forward at 20.
As team is gonna make the playoffs, more unlikely, he's more likely to be an All Stars.
I have him forth.
You could have him third, but teach his own third.
I have James Harden.
James Harden has been on historic Amazing run.
Um, but this week he has two losses.
Um, this one he shot absolutely terrible in.
I think they lost earlier this week to the Clippers.
To that was an awesome game.
He played amazing in that, um, but the shoot he could easily be first.
This is just where I have it running personally, um, shooting numbers.
They're still a little weird.
They're gonna bounce out there, come back up.
Now he's up to, like, 42% from the field, 35 from three and a ton of shots.
Shooting percentages up way away.
We were way up their defense is incredible.
They're one of the very were the best team in the n B A.
For a little stretch.
They're not counting the 1st 2 piece of the season.
Ah, he's been amazing.
He could easily be the envy of the favorite. Right now.
It's just so close.
Um, it's been awesome with these four people.
Um, second, I've Yonas entered a pocho.
He's averaging, like 30 14 6 eyes hitting threes, taken four game making, like 31 or 32% of them.
Uh, if you look at his numbers and this team eyes team winning their number one in the East and his numbers got even better than last year is averaging like those two steals on two blocks also in there.
Yeah, he's been incredible, but this one's gonna have to go to LeBron James.
Um, with the Lakers, they're 14 to 2.
They had a decent Lisi schedule, but this is what you do in the N.
Especially we've seen this with LeBron teens recently.
It's a team that they shouldn't and they lose.
And he's take care businesses here.
Whatever dominant you put in front of the team doesn't matter if It's an easy win.
It's still when he got knocked down, the dominant would get on to the next one.
That's what they've been doing.
They've only lost the Clippers.
No, against teams that are below 500.
And, like sick, too.
No foreign, too.
Yeah, for into against teams that are 500 or above.
They'd be everyone in the yeast besides the besides the Raptor There six and one, Maybe there.
I forget the exact numbers, but a lot of it is good to LeBron James.
He's leading the league in assists.
He's averaging 25 points per game.
Ah, he's easily his best defensive year since his last year with the with the Miami Heat.
We've never seen the ground, Um, since those since those Miami days Close out this hard rotate as well.
I'm bold. Defense is spectacular.
Um, he's just he's taken charges at a decent rate, too.
He's just he's just the whole package of spending this year, they said in the three ball well, you already have some highlight dunks.
He has that dunk on Alicia.
So LeBron James, having familiar like a classic season in Year 17 which I'm sorry, voters.
We're going to take into account if you're dominating at this age for this long and out of nowhere playing defense as well as he is, him and Anthony Davis are fitting together seamlessly, Borders.
They're gonna take that into account.
So that's why I have LeBron James as the MPP favorite right now.
Um, one month in that can easily change with one injury to someone.
Him just that rough.
A little patch has been so close like that from BP for defensive Player of the year.
It's normally a Big Man award.
Ready? Go bears always up there.
Drooling beans always up there.
Anthony Davis is always up there.
Young Bukos always up there.
Um and they are still.
But one name that's been being thrown around a lot is Marcus Smart.
He's been absolutely incredible for the Boston Celtics pensively this year.
Uh, that game guns the Clippers more specifically here, that amazing strip steel on the dough and threw it off the defenders leg on, and I think that was over time.
But he's averaging, like two steals per game, too.
But even with that, his onboard defense and just team defense is spectacular as always.
Ah, yonder sense of who goes up there.
Of course, he's after England's two steals blocks per game is always one of the best defenders at the room.
Andan space to you could do, both of whom were to go bare by the best defender in the N B A.
Because defense that the ring is just let out more important.
And he's the best at that best vendor with room best that block shots.
But I think Anthony Davis is gonna have to take this one.
I think he's been the defensive player of the year so far.
Is averaging close to three blocks per game.
I think he's number one on the MBA for blocks per game percentage at the room teams.
They're not playing or not finishing well of the room when if the Davis is there, uh, the Lakers have the best defense in the N B. A.
A lot of that is because of Anthony Davis, also LeBron guys like Dwight Howard and Avery Bradley and Danny Green as well, but to main guys for that are entered.
Davis and LeBron Anthony Davis probably the best fender right now in the n b a through a month.
So, uh, he's my defensive player of the year thus far.
Um, coach of the year.
They were gonna have to go with Frank Vogel.
Honestly, um, when this scene was put together, it was completely different narrative than it is now.
The whole talk was they picked up wash players washed away.
Howard washing Avery Bradley.
Uh, you missed out on on Quite Leonard.
And you signed all these guys Marcus Cousins.
Tour of a CEO, yada yada.
Um, and there was talk of them being like the fifth or sixth seed.
How good is their defense gonna be if their defense is good? How goes there office gonna be with LeBron and Anthony Davis? Right off the bat on dumb.
This is what's happened.
We've had Avery Bradley revitalized our revitalized, um, Quinn Cook has been hitting shots for them in the Daves, and LeBron on offense fit together like a glove and the best offensive team in the N B A with the best record.
So that's my argument for Frank Vogel for Coach of the Year thus far.
Um, I think it's really possible that he gets it to.
They're gonna after this easy start this year they have Corbett.
I think it's maybe in December.
They have a really rough month.
But still, um, if you gain want him early and you really get your feet when you really understand what you are is even who you are, what you're about before you get to the hard schedule.
Um, that's a good you would rather win games against teams that you're supposed to be and find out what you are is the team before you get to the hard schedule.
So that's what's going on.
Uh, for coach of the year, some other candidates.
Um, my boon Hoser is probably a good one.
Um, Brad Stevens.
Probably good one, Um, my mom.
Probably a pretty good one, too.
I really thought that much about coach of the year, but people just stood out the most to me, and I would assume toe most people.
Maybe Quin Snyder, too, because the Utah often has been flown really well to other winning games.
But that's it for Coach of the year.
Ah, six Man of the year.
It's gotta be, Lu will.
It should just be called Lou will award When I was doing six.
Man of the Year originally switched it a Spencer Dinwiddie.
Just because I've picked you will like every year.
And um, yeah, he's more likely gonna win him again.
He's been with Paul George out.
He was playing big minutes.
Um, but in the big numbers and they're winning even with one would quiet.
What's it as well, um, and now with Paul George out are bold words back.
He's even closing games, hitting being shot for them That game against the Rockets.
He like a deep 30 footer.
He was going on for them with Celtics, too.
Ah, he's just gonna He's following me This command of the year, Um, when it comes to other people Marco phone calls, maybe.
Um, all right, so no one else really stands out besides Louisville Month then.
So I think we looked at what passed ball reference has ranked for six men of the year, but I would assume so.
We did a defense player of the year.
We did coach a year who did MPP.
Let's Dio must do most improved, um as well.
This is my sound and B.
If it happens I think Pascal Siac, um, should be the favorite.
I think it should.
I think the June people made this year is even more impressive than last year, which is crazy to say, but he went from seven points per game to like 17 18 last year, and he was the second fiddle on a team that won the championship.
And he had a 30 point game in Game one of the NBA Finals.
Uh, but this year he's better.
He's number option.
He's never been up before.
His team's still winning.
I thought they were gonna get 30 because I thought he was a good Um, and he's improved his shot creation for himself off the dribble and from three from mid range.
Um, and he's numbers just took an even more even bigger leave.
It's actually, uh, what's bullet Pass? Kelsey Arkham stats.
Just so I can really, um, clarify the jump that he truly did make again this year.
His the woman from seven points per game to 16 which is a nine point Don't leave.
Ah Timepoint leave again.
He's a 25 so he's up 25 points per game, eight rebounds forces.
He's shooting 37% from three on 16 cents per game, and his shots off the dribble are better, too.
And he's shooting 47% from the field, and his team's winning, uh, he's, he's he's incredible, like it's crazy to think that a guy that won most improved player last year might win it again because, I mean, that's just that's never happened before.
But it could easily happen with Pascal.
See how come? No, I think Jonathan Isaac's a good one here.
Brandon Ingram is a good one here about that, grandpa. Good one.
I mean, there's a few good options like Brennan was a really, really good option, especially if voters don't want to vote the same guy two years and Ropes.
Farming is acting like 25 points per game, like seven assists or rebounds.
Any shooting like 50% from the field, like 48% from three.
And he's just he's got closer late in games.
He's probably been their best player this year.
Um, their record doesn't really reflect everything going on because I found out your dream it sometime.
Anger, missing time, lungs I missed some time, just heart missing time.
So I think that's another really good option.
I think voters, they won't vote the same guy twice in a row for this war because it's just weird to do that.
But, um so Brennan Ingram or Pascoe Siachen room options for that.
And then Rookie of the Year, Um, it would have been Zion.
I mean, let's just be real.
He would have walked away with this award in the preseason years, acting like 26 points per game, like 70% from the field.
Um ah, good amount of blocks and rebounds insists it would have been Zion Williams, but he's not here.
And, um, really only been like two options for May.
If the Norge a bear has been inconsistent on a really bad team, and then who really also hasn't had any stand out like everyone needs a moment or moments, Honestly, the Wooden Award and just be old statue Urban and John Ranch.
The only rookie, was really done that he had the clutch lay up and block against the nets.
Um, he's had insane dunks is an insane finishes that have gone viral.
Um, ends, leakers the other night.
A big game for them.
Ah, he had, like, 26 points per game.
Um, he's looked just so confident out there, getting to the rim and finishing over bigger defenders.
That's one thing about job as skinny and small is he is.
He still gets to the rim and finishes over.
These guys use and settle for floaters.
So that's what I would have for Rookie of the year.
There's definitely John Moran.
Um, it would have been Zion, but and I think even when he gets back so I don't finish third behind R J or even second behind job.
But this seems like it's jobs award toe to lose if he stays out.
So that's what I have for them.
One month MBA awards.
