    MVP: Kevin Durant
    COY: Frank Vogel
    DPOY: Roy Hibbert
    MIP: Paul George
    6th: Tyler Hansbrough/Ian Mahimi - unprecedented tie
    ROY: Orlando Johnson


    Yep... that's exactly what will happen. You'll see, you'll all see!

    I would think Noah and Gasol are the biggest challengers to Roy as DPOY. Hopefully the Sloan conference turned some heads in his favor. Guys are only shooting about 30% in the restricted area when Roy is there, that is incredible.

    What are the chances George makes an All-NBA team?
    Higher than I'd like. I think he gets on the 3rd team.

    If he makes it next this year, I'm basically assuming he will make another one next year, and then he is eligible for the Derrick Rose Rule, which raises his maximum salary extension cost significantly.

    I would be very surpirsed if Frank got COY. I think PG gets MIP and Roy gets DPOY before Frank gets COY

    That would be great for Paul but scary for the Pacers cap. 30% of the cap. I would say Lebron, Durant, Duncan, Carmelo will be 1st and 2nd team for the forwards. Not really sure who the 3rd team could be filled out with. Noah? Deng? David Lee? Pierce? Blake? Aldridge? Lots of guys looking at just 2 spots.

    Well his contract ends next year, so I already believe he will ask for a much higher contract

    He's talking about the Derrick Rose type contract. Paul George is going to get the max anyway. But if he meets certain conditions, he will be eligible for the superstar max, which is 2-3 mil a year higher than the typical max that Hibbert got. It doesn't mean that the Pacers would have to give it to him, maybe they won't, but then there's a risk of some bad feelings.

    Yes I know, but even if he makes the all NBA team this year, I don't think he'll be at the superstar range yet.

    well no, like Mackey-Rose said, you have to make it twice. This year and next.

    If he makes an All-NBA team this year, and again next year, he is eligible for the Rose Rule.

    All the talk I've seen has Noah winning DPOY with Duncan being after him. I've seen no national mention for Roy winning DPOY. Last thing I saw was at least a week ago...so who knows. The front runners change in the media at the drop of a hat it seems (besides MVP which James has had locked up for quite a while).
    Hopefully the media will cool off on Noah because of all the missed games. He's been a deserving candidate, but he doesn't have a case over lets say Marc Gasol to a point where it would cover 10 or more game difference. If Noah wins at this point, i'll see it as big market bias tbh.

    I think that Hibbert has a chance to win DPOY because the Pacers have such a good defensive team but Paul George will steal votes from him so I don't see it happening.

    James Harden will win MIP and it probably won't be close.

    I think Vogel could win COY but with the Heat's great 27-game streak, I don't see anyway Spoelstra doesn't win the award.

    Paul George and Roy probably make the NBA All-Defensive team (1st and 2nd respectively) and Paul has a chance for All-NBA Third Team.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    I was under the impression the Derrick Rose rule applied only to first team. First,second, and third team is kind of a stretch. Count me in the group who hopes he doesn't get all NBA 3rd team. It will be close.
