    Default When will the MIP award be announced?

    I've been waiting for days to see if Danny wins it. Anyone have a clue when it will be announced?

    Well, last year's award was given out one year ago today, so it should be sometime soon.

    If it is awarded to a player who is currently in the playoffs, they tend to like to give the award before the game.

    (For example) The MVP will be awarded to Lebron before one of the Cav games in the second round

    They announced the Sportmanship Award today. So MIP will probably be the next award handed out.

    its going to be a race between between Harris and Granger. I think if Milsap will win it next season if he starts

    I thin Harris is the safe bet. I dont think Granger will win it.

    Danny's best chance is if the voting gets diluted like it did on ESPN. They had a bunch of non-Devin/Danny guys getting votes, like Chris Anderson, Villanueva, Millsap, and Rondo... and Danny ended up winning the informal poll of writers with only 5 of like 20 votes.

    Rondo should win this hands down.

    Errr... DISAGREE. Rondo is a great player, but MIP this past season? Harris and Granger appear to be the better candidates in my opinion.

    I think Paul Milsap may have a good shot to sneak in and get this.

    I dont think she played enough mins. While Boozer was out, Milsap was killing it...Boozer came back and Milsap's mins dropped

    I think if a player is on the same team for more than 5 seasons and has improved a lot through out those 5 seasons on that team I think they deserve it.

    Harris changed teams and gets more minutes with the Nets as their starting PG rather than the Mavericks.

    Well, under those rules, Danny wouldn't qualify either.

    It is between Danny and Devin Harris. It's not really a matter of hate for either of these guys. Stern will pick whoever deserves it more.

    I meant to say like if a player was drafted by the same team they play for like Danny and improved with them they deserve it more verses a player that improved after being moved.

    I meant like if the player really sucked with one team and then moved and became a great player then that's when he'd deserve it. The 5 seasons with a team was an example like Danny's been with us for his whole career and improved through out it.

    Danny's the first player in NBA history to improve their scoring output by 5 or more points in 4 straight seasons. I think that alone should give him the MIP award, but it probably won't.
