MVP Arguments and More: Breaking Down Our Awards Ballots

MVP Arguments and More: Breaking Down Our Awards Ballots

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - April 11, 2017 - 1:16:12

On today's show, Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver explain their ballots for the NBA's end-of-year awards. They begin by clearing up some confusion about whether they actually have official votes, and it turns out that both of them do. Then they spend the next 25 minutes arguing about the MVP conversation and explaining their choices. From there, they talk through their picks for Most Improved (Giannis ... or Waiters?), Rookie of the Year (Embiid), Defensive Player of the Year (Gobert? Draymond?), and more. They finish by questioning the NBA's All-NBA system, picking their teams, and looking ahead to the playoffs.
