    Default NBPA Awards - New Awards Ceremony Voted on by Players, for Players.

    The National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) confirmed today that they will launch the first annual Basketball Players Awards in Las Vegas this July. In the time honored tradition of identifying excellence through peer review forged by The Emmy Awards, The Grammy Awards and The Academy Awards, the Basketball Players Awards are voted on by the league's active players. Voting has been underway for several weeks.

    "We as players want the opportunity to recognize our peers," said Carmelo Anthony. "We are making that happen with our own award show."

    Basketball Players Awards will be presented for the following categories:

    * Most Valuable Player
    * Best Rookie
    * Man of the Year
    * Best Defender
    * Global Impact Player
    * Hardest to Guard
    * Clutch Performer
    * Coach You Would Want to Play For
    * Best Home Court Advantage
    * Player You Secretly Wish Was on Your Team

    I think this is kinda cool! Will be interesting to see if the Players votes are any different than the leagues votes.

    Wonder what "Man of the Year" is all about ...

    I loooooooove this idea. I really want to see what the players think about each other and to be able to compare it against what the media thinks. This'll show us how things look from the player perspective, which I bet will bust some myths. For example, what if the players voted a guy like Thibs for CoY? What would that do to this "hard ass who wears guys down" narrative that's becoming his unofficial reputation? What if the players vote a defensive guy as 6th man instead of a microwave scorer? etc. etc.

    I really hope some awards get busted out of their ruts. They're really predictable.

    I really like this idea, be interesting to see how things shape up.

    Going to give us a really great inside look into how they see each other and themselves.
