One of my favorite parts of the NBA season is speculating which players will win some of the major awards. Will Kobe or LeBron take MVP home? Will Dwight Howard win yet another Defensive Player of the Year trophy?
Unfortunately, as the lockout continues, there is not much speculation that can be done. In fact, all we really can do is guess and take shots in the dark without any stats to go on. However, I have come up with a solution.
I have chosen four major NBA awards: Most Valuable Player, Defensive Player of the Year, Rookie of the Year and Sixth Man of the Year. Let's take a look at the top five contenders for each award and look at the odds of them winning it.
