The NBA regular season has come and gone and the Conference Finals are now underway.

This season, although filled with injuries, was record breaking and had many performances that will never be forgotten. The coveted NBA awards won’t be officially announced until after the NBA Finals on June 25th. However, the awards have already been voted for and analysts have been voicing who they think should win, and if they voted, who they picked to win each award.

Most Improved Player

Spencer Dinwiddie Stats: 12.6 PPG 3.2 RPG 6.5 APG 0.8 SPG

The only bright spot of the Brooklyn Nets this season was the surprising development of Spencer Dinwiddie, who completely upgraded his game in his 4th season in the NBA. Excited for the arrival of D’Angelo Russell from the Los Angeles Lakers, all eyes were on him, except Dinwiddie stole the show, even winning the NBA Skills Challenge at the All-Star Break, basically the Nets Championship.

Clint Capela Stats: 13.9 PPG 10.8 RPG 0.9 APG 1.9 BPG

Clint Capela can be described in one word: effort. Watching Capela play is truly menacing to watch as he just simply dominates opponents on the glass, constantly grabbing rebounds over larger players or simply pushing the smaller players out of the way. When he’s not catching a lob from MVP candidate James Harden, Capela was grabbing offensive rebounds to put it backup on his own. When he wasn’t on offense he was terrorizing opponents on defense, often blocking their shots into the stands and making sure they knew not to come in ‘his paint’ again. Capela not only earned himself a nomination for this award but he definitely set himself up for a nice payday this summer when he enters free agency.

Victor Oladipo Stats: 23.1 PPG 5.2 RPG 4.3 APG 2.4 SPG 0.8 BPG

Oladipo was traded this season for Paul George, noting that Oladipo simply wasn’t enough for Westbrook in the Thunder, “not a big enough name”…boy they couldn’t have been more wrong. Oladipo completely changed his body in the offseason, wanting to be better not only for himself but his Superstar teammate in Russell Westbrook, as they exited the playoffs prematurely the previous season. However, he was traded in the offseason for star Paul George, making his role from a 2 option to a ball dominant point guard to the number one option on an Indiana team that just had their identity ripped from them with the departure of George. Oladipo proved all of the doubters wrong and willed the Pacers to the 5 seed, getting the rid of the idea that they would need to rebuild and changing it to having to add “one more piece” to contend in the East.
