2000 SKC Awards
With the end of the season here, everyone is doing their own awards. So, we at SKC decided to share our awards; some with a little twist. So, without further delay, here are the first annual SKC Awards.
Most Valuable Player
Scott's Pick: Shaquille O'Neal, Lakers
The feeling was pretty much mutual on this one. Although we all would love to see CWebb get it and prefer Chris over Shaq, what Shaq has done this year cannot be matched by any other player. Not only is he scoring and rebounding, he is passing the ball well and leading the Lakers to victory. I (I being Scott) believe that Kevin Garnett is the best player in the league, but there is difference between most valuable and best. Garnett is having a tremendous season. Other candidates: CWebb, Payton, Duncan.
Worst NBA Player
Scott's Pick: Duane Causwell, Heat
Duane Causwell is the only player in the NBA who will get you 1 block, 1 missed dunk, 1 turnover, and foul out in 5 minutes. Other Candidates: Jim McIlvaine, Felton Spencer.
Team Of The Year
Scott's Pick: Lakers
Lakers win this award without any quarrels.
Worst Team Of The Year
Scott's Pick: Clippers
Although we like the Clippers future (with Olowakandi, Odom, and D.Anderson), they still take this award this year. Other Candidates: Grizzlies, Bulls, Wizards.
Coach Of The Year
Scott's Pick: Phil Jackson
Doc Rivers was a candidate, but it too tough to overlook what Phil Jackson has come in and done with the Lakers.
Worst Coach Of The YearScott's Pick: Gar Heard, Wizards
Jasminka's Pick: Gar Heard, Wizards
Brad's Pick: Gar Heard, Wizards
Gar Heard had a team with Rod Strickland, Mitch Richmond, and Juwan Howard and did nothing. Some will argue that it's the players fault, but will go with Wes Unseld (who fired Heard) and blame Gar. Other candidates: Don Casey, Nets.
Rookie Of The Year
Scott's Pick: Elton Brand, Bulls
The first award that actually will require some thought. Elton Brand lived up to his #1 pick status. Steve Francis also had a great season. Other candidates: Lamar Odom.
Sixth Man Award
Scott's Pick: Jerome Williams, Pistons
Detroit's Junk Yard Dog had a great season off the bench and was one of the league leaders in rebounding. Peja usually was the Kings second leading scorer in every game. Other candidates: Rodney Rogers.
Most Improved Player
Scott's Pick: Dirk Nowitzki, Mavs
Dirk has turned into one of the best shooters in the league. He helped Dallas reach the 30+ win mark this year. Don't know what Brad was thinking with Jason Williams. Other Candidates: Jerry Stackhouse, Bob Sura
Scott's Pick: Keith Closs, Clippers
The consensus pick for this award was Keith Closs. Keith's 'fro was like terror on the loose. Closs is listed at 7'3". With the hair, he's been measured at 9'6". Other Candidates: Shammond Williams, Sonics, Greg Ostertag, Jazz.
Scott's Pick: Peja Stojakovic
Maybe a little bias here, but when Peja is hot, nothing can stop him. He has a smooth shooting touch.
Scott's Pick: Warriors acquiring Larry Hughes
Larry Hughes will be a star in this league. It cost the Warriors John Starks and a 1st rounder. Toni Kukoc had an immediate impact in Philly.
Scott's Pick: Steve Francis, Rockets
Steve Francis is about 6'1" and his dunks throughout the year have been impressive. Vince Carter's dunks at the all-star contest may be the best ever.
Scott's Pick: Kings
Of course. The Kings fans rock Arco Arena and make it tough for any visiting team.
And on that note, we end the 2000 SKC Awards. We hope you enjoyed it.
