Andy and Dan submit their officially official, irreversibly irreversible picks for all seven of the NBA's year-end awards: Coach of the Year, Executive of the Year, Sixth Man of the Year, Most Improved Player, Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and MVP.
Did James Harden stave off his most direct competitors to win Hardwood Knocks' affections? Were Sixth Man of the Year and Most Improved Player really no-brainer selections? Who won Rookie of the Year, Donovan Mitchell or Ben Simmons? Who qualified as a candidate for Defensive Player of the Year? How difficult was it to select Coach of the Year? Did anyone other than Daryl Morey receive love for Executive of the Year?
Don't worry about this pod being predictable or run-of-the-mill. The Hardwood Knocks boys do, in fact, lean into the consensus, and there will be times when they agree. But they also disagree like gentlemen, butt heads like barbarians and enter picks with both their heads and heart.
