Rookie of the Year Royal Rumble, Too Many Coaches, All-NBA Numbers Crunch
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver talk NBA Awards. They begin by revisiting their MVP discussion, including a question on how good the Rockets would be with LeBron instead of Harden, and the rest of their picks for this year's top five. Then they move to Rookie of the Year (14:00), whether Ben Simmons claiming he hasn't noticed another rookie is a good look, why Donovan Mitchell's candidacy is being dismissed too casually, and what Simmons' ceiling really is. From there they move to coach of the year (32:00) in a year where there are too many great coaches to choose from. At the end (40:00): most improved picks, the sixth man of the year, executive of the year, and All-NBA picks.
