Since it is already nearing the end of the season, it is time to give out the NBA's 2007-08 awards. Here are the awards that I have included in this post, not to mention those that I have made up: Best Trio in the League Best Trade of the Year Best Conference GM of the Year Coach of the Year Rookie of the Year Most Improved Player of the Year Sixth Man of the Year Most Valuable Player of the Year Best Trio in the League: Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce of the Boston Celtics. The Spurs trio of Duncan, Parker and Ginobili get close dibs, but what the Celts trio has done in their first year is not even close. Best record means they have the best trio. The only clear cut favorite to unseat them in the East is the Pistons. Best Trade of the Year: Not only did this season have one of the busiest trading sessions in years past, but it involved some big named players. Shaq, Matrix, Kidd and others relocated in hopes to "reload" their teams with playoff vigor. But the trade that was most talked about, and most lopsided, was the Lakers-Grizzlies trade. Talk about a heist! The Lakers not only retooled with the arrival of versatile big man Pau Gasol, but they have done it without giving their top ten players. Not only that, but the Lakers are set for the future. Best Conference: The West of course! When did a season like this ever happen even in one conference? This is shaping up to be one of the most competitive and exciting runs to the playoffs in recent memory. Where can you find a 46 win team not making the playoffs? Only in this years Western conference race! GM of the Year: He was lambasted the start of the year, but now he....

I agree with all your awards but another legit candidate for rookie of the year is Al Thornton. He lit it up after the all star break. Good post Randy!

I agree, but Al Thornton has been doing a Jeff Green to Corey Magette's Kevin Durant. Similarity? They can't win.

Pareng Randy, you somehow get that sense that there's too much affliction and not affection for Kobe?

I get the feeling he won't win it.

That might not be such a bad thing if that maddens him and tears up everyone in his path. I personally want the MVP for him, but I prefer the hardware better.

I think he will have enough to win it Pareng Warren. I think the voters will consider that Chris Paul is still young and can win it in the future. But if he indeed does not win it, the rest of the teams better watch out!

I like the second part better. It simply involves more drama and its soooo LA. Once more, the local hero gets snubbed by the league that recognizes him to be their best player. He goes on to "I'll-show-y'all" mode and tears up everything.

Best Trade of the Year was the Garnett trade and the Best GM of the year is a tie with Ainge and McHale since they both aimed to better the Celtics.
