General Manager Awards (reviewed by Osirus75)
GM of the Year: PipRodJor NY (2000 NBA Champion)
PipRodJor completed a full year of league titles winning all 4 in 1999 to start off 2000. Forming another great team as he did with previous Phoenix to win the playoffs with ease. Todnba and Rhodyfan5 who were top nominees in ending Pip's run but ended up battling for the co-gm of the year award.
nominees-
1.) Todnba LAL 66 Wins, 16 Losses
2.) UofM714 POR 57 Wins, 25 Losses
3.) Rhodyfan5 UTA 70 Wins, 12 Losses
4.) PipRodJor NY 68 Wins, 14 Losses
5.) NikeGolfNC MIA 52 Wins, 30 Losses
6.) MichRulz02 MIL 56 Wins, 26 Losses
7.) NoLimit34MP IND 40 Wins, 42 Losses

Co-GM of the Year: Rhodyfan5 UTA
Todnba did surpass Rhodyfan5's Jazz in the semi-finals but this was definitely his best season with 70 Wins, 12 Losses which is 5th all-time earning him his first co-gm of the year award.

Most Improved Team w/GM: CRASHnBRN2 PHI (MIT)
This was most likely the closest MIT decision ever made between Philadelphia and New Jersey. Both were very much improved but Philly edges out NJ with a better record. But even though both Philly and NJ had extremely improved SL's, Philly also got the nod since they had a lot less to trade with. He still managed to keep his main and only trade bait Allen Iverson with no kukoc also. Excellent jobs by Taskmster4 and OcOnS735 who brought unlikely Dallas and Denver to the playoffs.
nominees-
1.) Taskmster4 DAL 48 Wins, 34 Losses
2.) CRASHnBRN2 PHI 51 Wins, 31 Losses
3.) Pizimprock NJ 41 Wins, 41 Losses

Worst GM of the Year: VPDeGuia LAC 15 Wins, 67 Losses
