Here we are at the NBA mid season, a month away from All-Star weekend, my favorite time of the year. Everyone has had their predictions like whether or not the Lakers or Celtics would win seventy games, or Blake Griffin would be the next big man to further revolutionize the role of the big man.

Most of the major title contenders have improved, or at least attempted to improve. Some moves have panned out. Some have backfired. Some still have the verdict still out on them.
Such is the beauty of sports, making the right move at the right time. Here are the front runners for the NBA awards at the midway point.
