Who are the individual cup leaders?

Mid-season calls, it’s time for the first overall assessment in the race for NBA trophies! You can obviously follow the entire course of these races in the monthly contest, but there’s nothing better than a little synthetic recap to keep everyone focused. Here we go!

# Player of the Year – MVP

  1. Nikola Jokic
  2. Luka Doncic
  3. Jason Tatum

MVP, or rather MVPic trophy, has a very strong Balkan accent at the time of writing. Nikola Jokic, the leader of the team that is at the top of the Western Conference, is currently leading the competition. Orderliness, victory, very high-class evenings. Total. He is closely followed by Luka Doncic, who just finished an exceptional December on an individual level. Collectively? The Mavericks lost without him. Their fourth place finish is a bit of a blemish on her record, but an increase in results could allow Lulu to look Nicola straight in the eye. The player left on the podium? Jason Tatum. The Celtics’ leader and team are also impressive, but the other two patients are even more individual. We need to stay the course and play even harder to keep believing in our chances! A little tribute to Kevin Durant and Joel Embiid, who were dirty but didn’t make our top 3.

# Best progress of the year – MIP

  1. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
  2. Tyrese Haliburton
  3. Lauri Markkanen

In a race that looks to be heavily dominated by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander midway through the season, the competition remains tough, and we can’t say it’s over for the Thunder phenom! We’re thinking Tyrese Haliburton and Lauri Markkanen, who obviously could be all-stars this season., as well as Anfernee Simons and Bol Bol, who have made significant progress in just a few months. However, with the wheel now in the hands of the 5th leading scorer in the NBA this season, the equation is SGA = MIP.

# Sixth Man of the Year – 6MOY

  1. Malcolm Brogdon
  2. Benedict Mathurin
  3. Russell Westbrook

The untouchable Malcolm Brogdon. The head of the Celtics bench, the man dominates the standings and the Eastern Conference. The kind of player that lets Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown rest without breaking a sweat. Also remember that Malcolm is very close to a 50/40/90 shot, need we say more? Anyway, he is followed by Benedict Mathurin. On the Pacers, Royal is flawless off the rookie bench, with no blunders on a surprisingly well-rolling team. Russell Westbrook closes out the standings thanks to his solid performances to help the Lakers continue their impressive winning streak. We also think of Tyus Jones and Bones Hyland, who brought so much power second unit For the two best teams in the Western Conference.

# Rookie of the Year – ROY

  1. Paolo Banchero
  2. Benedict Mathurin
  3. Jaden Ivey

Dictatorship has a name and his name is Paolo Banchero. The magical powerhouse is almost alone in the race for the title of the best neophyte in the NBA. Daron game of the league without any pressure. He is followed by Benedikt Mathurin, as if he had read this name somewhere. Keegan Murray and Jalen Williams also get dirty with the Kings and Thunder, respectively, but the third place on the podium is Jaden Ivey, who is in form on the Detroit side. Still, when it comes to beginners, it all comes together in today’s Bancheresque sense of the term.

# Defensive Player of the Year – DPOY

  1. Brook Lopez
  2. Evan Mobley
  3. Jaren Jackson Jr.

The man of all jobs, the man who reinvented himself from being a scorer for the Nets to being the boss of the Bucks defense. As a refresh model, the Brook is at the top of the race today, with serious competitors chasing after it. In his retro? Evan Mobley. The guy who makes you want to head straight for the hoop when he shows up. The trio’s last name? Jaren Jackson Jr. is a perimeter guard with the dynamic Grizzlies. A lot has been done, with special mentions to Bam Adebayo and OG Anunoby, but there is still work to be done in hopes of reaching the podium in the coming weeks.

# Coach of the year – COY

  1. Taylor Jenkins
  2. By Joe Mazzulla
  3. Willie Green

Who else can be at the top of this ranking except the leader of the “Oursons” group? The Grizzlies have only one desire: to return to the playoffs and finally pass this stage of the conference semifinals. Taylor Jenkins leads the pack as masterfully as he does in this trophy race. Behind him? Joe Mazzulla, who almost made us forget that Ime Udoka coached the Celtics last season. Willie Green and the Pelicans are doing a fantastic job of completing the trifecta, but let’s not forget the Nets, reinvigorated in December by Jacques Vaughn, who could quickly allow the Brooklyn tech to reach the podium if the good momentum continues.
