NBA Midseason Awards: All-League First Team
Steve Nash is averaging 17.4 points per game and 12 dimes. Nash has won back-to-back MVP awards and should have won three.
Nash flies down the court with tremendous vision and blows past slower defenders to dish it to anybody who is open. It doesn't matter if you’re in the highest seat in the house, he could hit you in the nose with a no-looker.
And with a good supporting cast like Amare Stoudemire, Raja Bell, Shawn Marion, and Grant Hill, Nash is even more dangerous.
Nash isn't afraid to get flashy to deliver pin-point pass to the hoop for an alley-oop to any one of his teammates.
Kobe Bryant has been known for his clutch performances and his stingy defense.
He's dropping 27.4 points per game and 5.1 assists.
For a while, it was thought he was carrying the team, but with Andrew "Baby Shaq" Bynum growing up right before our eyes, Kobe has become even more dangerous.
Bryant will pull up a jumper from anywhere with complete confidence that he is going to knock it down. He will also take a defender one-on-one and break his ankles.
A veteran, Bryant is still one of the best, if not the best player in the league.
LeBron James, the only player on the Cavs worth mentioning, is averaging 30.5 points and 7.1 assists.
He may not be the best shooter but dang-it if he wants to win, he will.
After coming off a big performance in San Antonio, James is looking to do the same back home tonight against the Wizards.
He amazed us last summer in the playoffs and now I look forward to seeing how he plans on bettering this year’s attempt at a NBA title.
Dwight Howard is a beast with 24 points and 9.4 rebounds in the past few games ; he is looking to send the Orlando Magic back into the playoffs for the second straight year.
Since being drafted straight out of high school, Howard has been an awesome player for the Magic as they look to build a franchise around.
But he is not alone on the team, Jameer Nelson is the second go to guy on the team and looks to be more of a factor in the offense this year.
Amare Stoudemire is joining his teammate Steve Nash on this list simply because he is the future of the Power Forward/Center position; and with 22.4 points a game and 9.3 rebounds this season it’s hard to argue with that.
This kid has a bright future and he clearly is going to become one of the most dominant players of all-time if he stays healthy.
Put up a shot near him and he is throwing it into the 7th row of the stands … then laughing at you for your stupidity.
His versatility is what makes him so great.
What good is a team without a good head coaching staff.
At this point in the year, I believe the best coaching staff has been the Los Angeles Lakers.
Phil Jackson and Co. have gone from being just a annoying fly in the west to becoming the flyswatter. This year the Lakers have improved from seventh in the west last season to third this season.
Coach Jackson is looking forward to returning to the playoffs for the third consecutive year and hopes to win another NBA title.
Does he have enough fingers for all of his rings?
