I am back with another video.
I want to kind of you in between games.
I've already probably have already come to watch the Nuggets and the Wizards play They're playing right now.
A mix tape delay, but I was able to watch it on NBA TV on my computer than the Nuggets.
Excuse me, the Clippers and a Magic just finished their game, so I have a little time in between games.
I want to kind of get the video after way because I also have another video do.
So today's video is going to focus on MBA individual awards before I get started. The video.
Don't forget to follow me at simply me.
Underscore a fee on Twitter.
I'm a part of the Unwrap Sports Network.
Also, I have a podcast.
I am one of three to co host on a podcast called Thunder Coast to Coast were actually going live at 5 p.
Which isn't about about 45 minutes.
My times hope I'm trying to get these videos out to you guys and also do my obligations as well.
So NB awards is get straight to it now.
These is just my opinion.
This is just my panel awards.
Um, I have a winner that I have three other guys.
So I'm not gonna go in depth about each person because that would take a very, very long time to do because you got six, man, the year most improved rookie of the year, coach the year defensive player of the year in M v P.
So I'm not going to go in depth about it.
But I will talk about some of these players and why I put them on the list.
A lot of people might not have him on their list, but I have them on my but I won't announce the winners of the list until I'm done talking about everybody on every list.
Someone go through six man, Most improved break it a year, coaching your defensive player of the year in the M V P.
When I get done with that, then I'll tell you guys who my winners are now.
Yesterday, I did the MBA scrimmage schedule.
For some reason, the schedule a head that I had allowed back, probably like a week or two ago, was a little inaccurate, but it says on the top of the schedule that is subject to change those times I have.
Yes, they were Eastern Standard Times the Nuggets and the Wizards started at 3 p.m.
My tie and the Magic and the Clippers started to PM my time and I'm central, K C D C 1993.
Thank you for joining Broadcast.
I appreciate it.
And I'm central time.
So yesterday I said three and 3 30 but it was 44 o'clock.
Three and four o'clock Eastern Standard time.
So they changed those time.
Excuse me a little bit, but it looks like that they're trying to stagger the games a little bit like I say yesterday.
So and it is tape delayed.
So now the Nuggets and Wizards are on N B A, I believe, league pat. No TV.
Whereas they were on league pass, I believe earlier because I was watching one game on my laptop and I was watching another game or my TV.
So that's kind of how we're gonna have to do it. Read Bonds.
Thank you so much for coming back.
I appreciate it now.
I have a video yesterday talking about the scrimmages.
Like I said and I also have a video isn't that same video? I'm talking about the Oklahoma City thunder as well.
Let's just talk about this screaming Scheduled have three games and also talking about their upcoming schedule.
So it was my welcome back video.
I really appreciate the support I got from that video and also the comments as well.
I read the comments, and I try to reply like If I'm missin, is giving you guys information.
All replies to your comment just because I want to stay active with my viewers.
So let's get into it.
Like I said, I'm gonna give you the winners at the end of the video.
So six months of the year, these are my four candidates Montrose Hurl, Lou Williams, Dinner Shrewder and Derrick Rose.
Those are my four Candies for six. Man of the Year.
Ma four K's for Most Improved Bamut.
A Bio Devante Graham, Jayson Tatum, Brandon Ingram, Ricky At a Year, John Marine, Zion Williamson, Kendrick nine.
Eg Paschal, Coach of the Year.
Taylor Jenkins slash Erik Spoelstra, My Budenholzer, Billy Donovan and Nick Nurse.
Do you think the player of the Year Bizima slash qy Leonard, Anthony Davis Johannes And it's a Campo and Rudy go bare every p James Harden and Chris Paul LeBron James A honest and Ciccone Pope.
Now you guys gonna say, Wow, you got some kind of strange names on their list.
Thank you for the 99 30.
Thank you for the tip.
I appreciate it. Now.
People might think that somebody's names don't belong on this list, but once again, it's my list.
So I'm gonna give you reasons why I picked certain people you wouldn't think will be honest list.
I'm a star with six Man of the year deck Rose.
A lot of people like, Wow, Derrick Rose six months of the year. Yes.
Shrewder Lou Williams and my trace hurled.
You're thinking, OK, they're gonna be on a list for six minute a year.
Derrick Rose actually is a 60.
Should be six minutes in your candidate now.
I didn't look at ESPN.
I didn't look at bleacher report or even, uh, any of the writers.
I didn't look at those.
I just looked at my eyes telling me and sets deck.
Rose was the one constant for Detroit all your along, even though they did not have the record.
He stopped five and scoring off the bench.
He's top five and assists off a bit off the bench as well.
So that's why dead grows is in my M V P cover.
I'm excuse me in my six months of the year conversation.
He is an EVP as well.
You think Brandon Ingram Bam and Devante Grant would be on this list? Jayson Tatum.
Jayson Tatum uses rate, went up.
His points went up eight points per game.
His minutes went up, of course, and still goes went up.
Now, mind you, he had a new point guard in Kemba Walker.
He doesn't have curry.
Jalen Brown also could have been on this list.
But I pick Jayson Tatum because I think he's gonna also also gonna be on N B A player this year.
I think he's gonna make a team on N B a team.
I think he will make 13 r N b A.
Just from what I've seen and how they're breaking down N b A teams issued, they're gonna pretty much make your position this because you have multiple guys eligible for multiple positions.
It looks like I saw NBA team would not one point guard.
I think I saw LeBron gone is like they don't have a point guard under there all, even though LeBron is a 1.
0.0.4, in my opinion.
But Jason Tatum on at least for most improved problem shocks you, but it shouldn't he will make in our NBA team this year.
Um, he was an all star.
He's up his uses, his uses right is up.
Minister points up now.
Rookie of the year.
You would think Zions, John Moran and Kendrick nuts.
Eric Pascual is top five in points and rebounds amongst rookies.
Egg Pasco is a great piece there in Golden State, I think went out when they get off their horses.
Thank you for joining Broadcast.
I appreciate it when they get all their horses back, he's gonna fit in very well in that offense.
Kind of reminds me of drop Draymond green, but not quite really, because he does shoot a lot of meat rates.
But Steve carded happiness have him instant sets this year where he played there.
Draymond role Andre mindless out.
So I do like Eric Pascual a lot in that offense.
I think he'll work well with Steph and Clay and Draymond.
Wonder who they're five would be is gonna be there And Golden State If they're gonna draft a guy, I think they should.
Dr James James Watson it if he's available because he fits well with their offense.
You can kind of mode and groom him and so on.
Offensive player because he he will be someone you will have to mode and groom runs the floor well, plays great defense and protects around.
Okay, Coach of the year.
I got Taylor Jenkins slash exposure.
You expect Nick Nurse Billy Donovan and my boot hose would be there? Tyler Jenkins has a young team in Memphis.
A lot of people didn't pick Memphis to be in this position.
You got John Moran.
You got Jan Jackson Jr.
You got Brandon Clarke got Dillon. Brooks.
Um, got Valentin is a lot of people did not pick them to be in a position that they're in of this season and there in the eighth spot right now.
5 games ahead of the Sacramento Kings, the Pelicans and the Blazers.
It is what it is, I thought. Taylor Jenkins.
I think Taylor Jenkins is doing a beautiful job there in Memphis.
I am going to watch more Memphis games.
That's why I bought MBA TV.
A league passed because I need to watch more Memphis games.
I've only seen them play about four times this year, so I want to really see them play exposed.
Trip that team in Miami, You got Jimmy Butler like, Okay, they might be viable in the East, but they're the fourth team in the East right now.
And a lot of people don't want to play Miami with the lift they have with the growth of Bannon Bam in a bio.
Duncan Robinson shooting Tali hero shooting Kendrick Nunn has just come out of nowhere, just bursting onto the scene, especially in summer league.
You get Andre Iguodala, you get Jae Crowder.
You got dragged off the bench.
Derrick Jones Jr.
You got him athletic guy.
I really like him.
They have some very nice pieces there in Miami to compete, and they are actually my dark horse to come out of the East.
I don't know is a long shot, but our trucks exposure.
He If you can cut coach LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, you can coach anybody ***hi, coach, three superstars, two championships and that is very important.
I like exposure.
Great guy started in the film room there in Miami, and he just became a coach.
Pat Riley trusted him and believed in him, and he's done wonders with those young players.
They have a good mix.
So you got under Equal Dollar s championship experience.
Crowd has been a league, and then you have Jimmy Butler, who's that leader? And then you got those young guys.
I think they have a great mix of young young guys.
Invest now, my defensive player of the year.
I got quite limited.
It's I don't know if Kawai, with shock people Maybe busy UM is might may be quiet might because quiet and play all how many games to play 59 games or so quiet and play every day.
But he is still a force on the defensive end.
I saw him make three different plays just watching them scrimmage, and he didn't play very many minutes.
Ben Simmons is a very, I think, under a defender he can guard your point guard.
He can guard a big I would want him chasing shooting guards around.
I just wouldn't want him to do that.
That's really what wing defenders do.
Like the quiet Paul.
George is market smarts.
Alex, thank you for joining Broadcast.
I appreciate you guys go give him a follow.
He does a lot. Alex.
Actually, I'm gonna have to talk to you about something that me and Perry have been discussing, but I will d m you and let you know about that.
But go give him a follow. He's apart.
The unwrapped sports network.
Alex does a lot.
They're doing their life of football broadcast today.
Um, for the NFL.
Correct Alex and it.
What's high? What time is that? Start? Because I have to be on my ipad toe.
Watch that because I will be watching games and things like that.
But they're doing a life football panel a seven o'clock of central time.
Eight PM Eastern and five Pacific.
So unwrapped this the NFL addition.
You guys go check that out.
I was on the unwrap tous MBA edition.
I'll be on another MBA edition Sunday. I will be a co host.
And then I also did the ladies of Unwrap.
You guys go check that out.
But thank you, Alex, for coming on the broadcast.
I appreciate it's gonna be a quick broadcast cause I have to get back out there and want some more basketball.
But business is very underrated. Defender.
I put Kawai own here because of what he does on the defensive end here in a year out.
And he actually played very well on defensive end this season.
Now, my EVP people might think that I put Chris Paul on here because he plays for the thunder.
As you well may see, I put Chris Paul here because he plays for the thunder.
I put Chris Paul on here because of the value he has given the Oklahoma City thunder.
The value that you see with Shea, which is FDA within a shrewder Baisley.
Terrence Ferguson, Blue Door Nater, Steven Adams, even Billy Donovan.
He's made Billy Donovan a better coach.
Chris Paul is leading.
Okay, See, in so many ways, I put him on here for every pay because we were picked the Oakland City Thunder will pit the 13th in the West.
The Thunder were looked at as a non playoffs imports.
He probably helped him.
Yes, he has prep the team.
This team flourish.
Yes, he has Alex and the thing about Chris Paul in the fourth quarter.
Okay, See, has really have to dig themselves out of holes.
And guess who's been the catalyst in the fourth quarter.
I think he's the top in the top two in the league and fourth quarter, uh, efficiency and scoring and all, all the things that matter in the fourth quarter.
I think Chris Paul's at the top of that list.
If I'm thinking correctly, I saw graphic that he was at the top.
Thank you for joining Broadcast.
I appreciate it.
Everything that Chris Paul brings to Oklahoma City, Sometimes you just don't see it.
You don't see it unless you actually sit down and watch the Oklahoma City Thunder game.
I would encourage you to sit down and watch a game.
What were these eight games? Just see how he talks to the young fellas and how he gets them and gets them in positions to be successful.
So that's why I have him on here as the MPP candidate.
Mark, thank you for joining Broadcast.
I appreciate it.
He is also a part of the Unwrap Sports Network.
He was a co host on the unwrapped.
This the MBA panel addition? I believe he's gonna be my co host.
He's gonna be my host Orn Sunday.
I'm gonna be his co host on Sunday when we do another addition of unwrapped this to be the envy a panel, But they'll be the second round.
So you guys go check him out.
He also has a podcast.
Mark, if you would drop their podcast down below, that would be great.
So let these people go listen to your podcasts.
I think he does Twitter live on his podcast.
So you guys go check him out.
Now that I explained why I put certain people on the list, I'm going to say you my winners.
So we're gonna start with six.
Man of the year.
My six Man of the year Ghost didn't shrewder for Oakland City Thunder.
You guys think that I'm being ah, hometown.
I'm playing hometown favors but I'm not.
He leads the NBA in bench scoring.
That team is fifth in the West right now.
They have the potential to be the fourth seed in the West, and Chris Paul's leadership has arrested him and said that Roh he accepts his role.
He knows his role.
ESPN had Louis ums when his award had dinner. Shootout.
The third had my interest. Hurts.
Second, I think.
Didn't shoot. It will win that award.
I don't know which way it's gonna go.
I'm gonna go. Brandon Ingram.
He showed it last year with LeBron got hurt with their growing injury after the All Star break.
His numbers just took off.
He got to New Orleans.
Have any injury stepped into the row of being that the dog? I want to see more of it, but he's now averaging almost 25 points a game, leading New Orleans.
Right now he is my most improved now mid season.
I had the Francais Graham, then Bam at a bio.
Conduct came along and he was having tripled up and he was double double machine and he had a triple double.
I believe a couple triple doubles but Brenda, England to stay consistent throughout the whole year.
That's why I'll pick Brandon Ingram for most improved rookie of the year.
This is going to cause some controversy, and it shouldn't between Zion and John Moret.
John Marantz, my rookie of the year, exceed in the West.
Nobody believed in your coach.
Nobody believed in you.
They just put a young squad together.
They traded away basically their whole veteran corps and just gave you the team.
And you're the eggs seed in the West.
Grit and grind. Memphis.
They trade the whole team away.
Valentine is there's only one I think that they got Valentin is from Toronto and then my colleagues down Utah.
Um, you know Tony Allen is done.
He's retired Marcus Saul's in Toronto.
So that whole team, that grit and grind team, is not bought.
Now it's the young guns in Memphis, and I'm gonna watch them play more.
But John Moretz, mob rookie of the year Zion Williamson, did not play a whole season.
John Morant Hats genre has a team that people had did in the water.
He has him in the eighth seed in the West in there, 3.
5 games up on New Orleans.
Zion has more around him.
The job Morant does.
I has a better coach than John Durant does.
What's right now? Cassandra Jenkins is really showing his coaching ability with these young guns.
So we get a year ghost John Moran.
John Grant is Yeah, but it's gonna be some controversy about that is gonna be some conference.
Trust me, people, will I? Oh, no.
His eye on his eye on no is John Marin now Coach of the Year.
I gave you guys my candidates.
My coach of the year will be Nick Nurse.
You lose Kawhi Leonard, you lose Dedi Green.
You get calorie to show up in the playoffs, you have one of best benches in the n b a.
Ah, Marcus Saw Terrace Davis O g N o b These guys, these role players played a factor in the finals last year O g and an obedient play much.
But these guys came onto the scene last year and you were able so build that confidence and Roland confidence into the next season with the same guys minus co I linen and any great everybody knows that everybody knows that chair the quiet went later went on last year, and that is amazing.
What he's done is Herat, so people did not pick to Ruffalo finished second in the East.
And honestly, if they were healthy offseason, it could have been number one in the East. They had.
They had a lot of injuries, even though they be going on a winning streak.
When I had those injuries, they had a lot of injuries that I think kind of helped them back for pushing for the number one C and Milwaukee was so far ahead.
But Toronto was creeping up to rot.
So is a team to watch out for Defoe.
Julia, thank you for doing the broadcast.
I appreciate it. Welcome back. He came.
He came on yesterday.
I appreciate it.
Nick Nurse has done an amazing job there in Toronto.
I like Nick Nurse.
He's my defensive Excuse me.
He's my coach of the Yes I defense culture here.
He's my coach of the year there in Toronto.
What they've done in Toronto has been amazing, actually, my pick to come out the East Um, I talked about that yesterday as well.
My defensive player of the year.
This is going call some controversy as well.
My last two wars going Call some real controversy.
My defensive player years.
I think Anthony Davis is more versatile on the defensive, versatile on the defensive and being honest.
It's any Davis plays the picking road better than honest dust.
Now a lot of people are gonna pick ya artists, but I think any Davis deserves defensive player of the Year.
What he does on that back em him and she fell McGee and Dwight Howard.
Doing that back in for the Lakers is very crucial and very vital.
That's why a lot of people have the Lakers went in the NBA championship.
LeBron can kind of shell on defense a little bit because he knows what he has on the back.
And I got Anthony Davis.
I might have to feel McGee and I might have Dwight Howard back there waiting to block a shot so you can kind of let a guy go by, but I know I got the defense on the back end is very, very important.
Anthony Davis, Body play year.
He's more votes versatile on the defensive, and then any of these other guys? Well, probably minus maybe Kawai Leonard.
But the guys that are really, really in the race, I think it's a two man race.
I think it's gonna be between the honest Anthony Davis.
I don't think you go wrong with either pick, but Anthony Davis is my defensive player of the year.
My everybody is yacht is Yeah, this is my EVP.
I know you LeBron fans.
I'm going to hear it from LeBron fans, but just hear me out.
They have the best record in the MBA.
I think what somebody say, I don't know. A few boys.
Kendrick Perkins was a Kendrick Perkins.
I think, he said, If you took ya Tous off of Milwaukee, I'm not quite sure who said it.
I don't want to say it was Kendrick Perkins and it wasn't him, But he said, if you take E honest off Milwaukee, they're still a play out.
See, if you take LeBron off of the Lakers, they're not a play up there.
What did he say? Almost a lottery team.
I don't know how true that is.
They play in two different conferences.
I give you that because if you don't have LeBron on the floor, you have every day with in New Orleans all over again, in my opinion.
But Avery Bradley, who came onto the sea KCP got his confidence.
Do you know what any green is gonna bring you? I don't know.
I think LeBron's value is so high.
He's averaging a double double this year with points and assists.
His value is so high because he does so much.
LeBron does a lot now with yon is I think the books ***** might be better than the Lakers bench.
I mean, they did get Morris.
They lost Rondo.
Morris brings that toughness off the branch.
You got Dwight Howard, you got Caruso.
You got a queen cook.
KCP so I don't know.
I like the books. *****.
I like the books.
I don't know if the books are not a playoff team without Johannes.
Um, they I don't think their playoff team without you, honest, I really don't.
It's just so different conferences.
So that's really hard to decide, because the West is a lot tougher in my pain than the East.
Um, the but one of the bottom teams in the West is a sense on your Spurs, and the Spurs are a well or oiled machine.
It just couldn't quite stay consistent all year.
That's tough, but you go, LeBron organised There I'm born.
Got is I don't know if you take.
If you think well brought off the Lakers, I wouldn't call them a lottery team because you still got any Davis.
Um, I don't know if their playoff team, though, honestly, in the West there not a playoff team in a waste, but I've seen every day was do oh, more with less.
Maybe I don't know that.
That's a good question.
That's something that I could think about talking about.
That could be a topic for a video you take.
Yacht is off the books.
Oh, his value as high as well.
But I think LeBron's value in Janice's value or high for different reasons.
LeBron you care, coach what LeBron brings to a team, you just can't do it in a different way that you can't coach what Yonas brings to a team.
LeBron's like having a coach on the floor in my PM.
Yeah, This is just very.
He's very long, very athletic.
But yes, he says, Show me something in the playoffs.
I will admit that, Um, when Brad Stevens, when he plays against Brad Stevens, Erik Spoelstra, Nick Nurse, he's gonna have to show me something.
He's going to show me that he could be more versatile office because they had the recipe the Raptors did for beating the books.
So I give you honesty.
MPP LeBron was on his heels coming up on his heels, but I think Yonas has just done too much in order to keep that M v P.
Now people might drag me for that.
Maybe I'm not sure, but that's just my opinion.
So let me go through my words again.
I have been a shooter six minute a year.
Brandon Ingram Rookie of the year.
John Moran, coach to your Nick Nurse, Defensive Player of the Year Anthony Davis, MPP Yacht Assistance to compose the two awards that I think Well, there's, well, one award that won't be controversial, and I think that's culture the year I think everybody will have Nick Narcisse culture the year, everything else controversial six many years gonna be controversial.
Most improved rookie of the year.
He was a play. Your M V P.
Um, Could got us win.
Defensive Player of the year And Ricky.
I mean, he was a part of the year N v p.
Yes, he could Could bam way most improved.
He probably could the waves win six man here.
You probably could, but these are These are my picks.
This is my opinion.
I could easily see Johannes went in both defensive M m v p.
I could see that, um how came in Jordan did it.
Defensive player and, um, MPP in a season.
So can he add a championship to it? You never know, But those are my picks, guys.
Thank you guys so much for joining broadcast.
I really appreciate it.
Don't forget to follow me as simply me.
I am actually probably get ready to record my podcast here in a minute.
