DreamsSports Mid-Year NBA Awards 2012

With NBA All-Star weekend here it’s only fitting that I give you my mid-seasons awards…

LeBron James-Miami Heat

LeBron James regular season has truly been a warm up. He’s again eyeing the NBA Finals and at this pace I see no reason why he and the Heat won’t be there. The critics will speak volumes if they don’t win it all but if James show up like has during the first half of this season we won’t hear much from the critics. Besides scoring 27.6 points per game he is pulling down a career-high 8.2 boards per game, leading the team in assists at 6.8 per game. The numbers that stands out the most is without Wade in the lined-up the Heat are 8-1.

Rookie of Year
Kyrie Irving-Cleveland Cavaliers

Without many national televise games Irving is still making noise.  Leading all rookies and his team in scoring at 18.3 points per game, Irving is a true point guard. In a few years he will be amongst the top point guards. Shooting 49 percent from the field and having the closer mentally life after James for Cleveland fans might not be so bad after all.

Sixth Man Award
James Harden-Oklahoma City Thunder


If there was a best beard award he would win that too. Harden could start on most NBA teams but his contribution off the bench has the Thunder atop the Western Conference. Not many teams receive consistence off the bench Harden brings 16.8 points per game and the excitement that all Thunder fans has grown to enjoy. Even though he comes off the bench Harden often is on the floor in the fourth quarter to help Durant and Westbrook close out games.

Coach of the Year
Doug Collins-Philadelphia 76ers

And they say that coaches in the NBA don’t really coach they manage egos. Well, Doug Collins has done it again he has the young 76ers in the playoff hunt and looking to make some noise. Collins has the 76ers playing lights out defense and sharing the ball has become the norm around the team.  Without a major star on the team Collins and the 76ers could have the deepest team in the league. They will be a hard out come the playoffs.

Defensive Player of the Year
Dwight Howard-Orlando Magic

Can we just rename this award to the 'Dwight Howard' award? Most teams focus on defensive as a team concept well; in this case Howard locks-down the paint by his self. Howard leads the league with 11.8 defense rebounds and fifth in blocks 2.12 per game. Despite all the trade talk Howard seems to keep smiling while closing down the painted area. He is truly a great piece to start if you want to build a team around defensive.

Most Improved Player
James Harden-Oklahoma City Thunder

In his third year he has become the best sixth man in the League. Every year Harden’s numbers has gone up and his level of importance to the Thunder has increase. Thunder will depend on him more than normal with backup point guard Mayor lost for the season Harden will be looked to do everything for the second unit score, pass, rebound and more.
