Early 2019-2020 Nba Awards Predictions
Way Early NBA 2019-2020 Season Award Winners
With the NBA season recently wrapping up, we will look a year ahead and try to predict who wins the major NBA awards!
MVP- Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors)
Finalists- Giannis Antetokounmpo, Paul George
I think that we see Curry have another MVP year due to the fact that teammates Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant will be injured for most, if not all of next year. Not to mention that they are free agents as well! All Curry will have is Draymond Green so I think he puts up career highs in most, if not all statistical categories.
I almost had Giannis winning but he has a good supporting cast unlike Steph who will literally have to carry Golden State in hopes of another finals.
DPOY- Rudy Gobert (Utah Jazz)
Finalists- Jrue Holiday, Kawhi Leonard
I think that Rudy takes it home again due to Utah becoming championship contenders with the acquisition is PG Mike Conley. Rudy is an elite rim protector and can get you around two blocks a night. Though he is not the greatest offensive star, on defense he is a presence and that is facts.
You might be asking, JRUE HOLIDAY?? WHY? Jrue has been underrated for years and in the backcourt of Lonzo Ball and himself, that is just pure clamps. With Anthony Davis out of New Orleans, Jrue will show the fans what he really has to offer without being overlooked.
MIP- Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics)
Finalists- Jamal Murray, Colin Sexton
With Kyrie Irving and Al Horford making it widely known that there is a strong chance that both of them will leave in free agency, somebody has to make that second step. Jayson Tatum had an insane rookie year when Kyrie got hurt, but didn't have the greatest sophomore year due to him being healthy. So with both of them gone, I think Tatum takes the next level in his game, becomes an all star and takes home the MIP award.
If you think that Colin Sexton could win, I don't blame you after the all star break, he was putting up insane numbers but with Tatum around, he takes it home.
ROY- Zion Williamson (New Orleans Pelicans)
Finalists- RJ Barrett, DeAndre Hunter
It doesn't really seem like a sunrise if Zion wins Rookie of the Year due to him being called basically the next LeBron and all the hype surrounding him, plus Lonzo Ball feeding him lobs would just increase his production on paper, not really a debate here,
If your asking why isn't Ja Morant here? I gotta tell you, I feel that he will be better long term that Hunter, but won't have the greatest rookie year!
6MOTY- Spencer Dinwiddie (Brooklyn Nets)
Finalists- Lou Williams, Gordon Hayward
I'm just going to be flat honest, I don't want Lou to win again. Don't get me wrong, he is a great player, but someone else is going to rise up and that person will be Spencer Dinwiddie. The Nets have one of the greatest benches, largely in part to him averaging around 16 points in the 2018-2019 NBA season,and I think he keeps rising on that level. You could say Gordon Hayward will start if the Celtics do a small ball type of lineup, but I don't really see that happening with Coach Stevens.
COY- Luke Walton (Sacramento Kings)
Finalists- Alvin Gentry, Doc Rivers
Ok, this one seems like a stretch but somehow I feel that Walton will make De'Aaron Fox into an all star this year by running the offense through him. I also feel with a new coaching plan, the Kings playoff drought will finally be over and fans can rejoice. I have them right now has a 6 seed in the west, which is great for the franchise!
Executive of the Year- David Griffin (New Orleans Pelicans)
Finalists- Masai Ujuri, Rob Pelinka
David has got to win this award, trading one player for a boatload in return. He straight up fleeced the Lakers in giving away all of there young assets minus Kyle Kuzma, but he wasn't done after that, he traded the 4th overall pick to the Hawks for more first rounders and Solomon Hill's awful contract! Executive of the year, no doubt here folks!
This is my way early awards prediction, thanks for looking!
