2012-13 Player Awards
By Aaron Jones

A Recap of who won what for the 2012-13 NBA Regular Season.

Most Valuable Player: SF Moses Chara (Sacramento Kings)
Key Statistics: 25.6 ppg, 9.0 rpg, 8.7 apg, 1.9 spg

Chara edged out Lebron James for this one. NBA scoring champion Kevin Durant (my dark horse to win it) was a distant third in voting. Moses Chara thoroughly deserves this award. James and Durant both are blessed with athleticism that goes a long way to helping them with their games. Chara just isn’t the most athletic guy in the gym and makes do with what he has. A sexy jumpshot, court smarts and a never-say-die attitude combine to give you this season’s NBA most valuable player.

Rookie of the Year: C Janis Kalnins (Minnesota Timberwolves)
Key Statistics: 8.0 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 3.0 apg

This is a huge surprising considering that:

A) Liam Washburn of the Bucks had much better averages.
B) The Bucks made the playoffs and the Wolves didn’t.

Talk about a confusing award winner here.

Defensive Player of the Year: C Dwight Howard (Orlando Magic)
Key Statistics: 17.5 ppg, 12 rpg, 1.1 spg, 3.0 bpg

This was pretty much expected but I was surprised by how much of a landslide Dwight won by. Kenneth Dela Cruz was my pick here and I think he’s going to show everyone why when he matches up against Moses Chara in the next round of the playoffs. Other players that had great defensive seasons were Donnell Lawrence, Michael Beasley and Josh Smith.

Sixth Man of the Year: PG Jerryd Bayless (Dallas Mavericks)
Key Statistics: 15.6 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 3.3 apg, 1.1 spg

With Steve Nash retiring, the point guard spot in Dallas is in good hands. Bayless has been on the cusp for many years and his time will finally come next season. It’s good to see him add some hardware for his efforts. Gerald Wallace and Rodney Stuckey were contenders in this field but Bayless must have made the cut due to the Mavs making the postseason.

Most Improved Player: C Brook Lopez (Detroit Pistons)
Key Statistics: (2011-12) 3.6 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 0.4 apg, 0.5 bpg to (2012-13) 8.6 ppg, 8.1 rpg, 1.4 apg, 1.2 bpg

There wasn’t a big field of names here. Lopez was solid but nothing spectacular as he more than double his production across the board.

Coach of the Year: Will Sit (Seattle Stealth)

He got his team to play even harder this season after a heartbreaking Western Conference Finals loss last season. He got Kevin Durant to harness his scoring talents and be even more efficient with the basketball. He got Reshawn Tyson and Andrew Bogut to the All-Star Game. He got David Lee, Allen Iverson, Aaron Karl, Trevor Ariza to fit in as role players. And the most genius move of all was the gutsy benching of 2012 first overall draft pick Jao Wu in favour of the veteran-savvy Jason Kidd. The final result: 59 wins, number 1 seed and a shot at an NBA title. Not bad for the second year Stealth coach.

All-NBA Teams:
First Team: Dwight Howard, Martti Must, Moses Chara, Dwyane Wade, Ray Lliach
Second Team: Andrew Bogut, Jay Gray, Lebron James, Gilbert Arenas, Chris Paul
Third Team: Yao Ming, Michael Beasley, Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala, Deron Williams

All-Defensive Teams:
First Team: Dwight Howard, Martti Must, Kenneth Dela Cruz, Andre Iguodala, Ray Lliach
Second Team: Greg Oden, Michael Beasley, Josh Smith, Larry Williams, Rajon Rondo

All-Rookie Teams:
First Team: Janis Kalnins, Eric Smith, Liam Washburn, Albano Spagnoletti, Ifeanyi Ndiaye
Second Team: Jake Williamson, Frederich Lampley, Carl Thomas, Leo Lai, Marc Oliver

Improve Your Player and All-NEW Player Influence


Improve Your Player

Every participant has a certain number of points that they will be able to use on improving attributes of their virtual player. You only have one chance to use all these points so don’t waste your points (i.e. any leftover points are not able to be brought forward to the next tipping competition).

For every Skill-based attribute, it costs you 4 points in order to improve that certain attribute by 1. For every Physical-based attribute, it costs you 8 points in order to improve that certain attribute.

Skill-based attributes are skills like shooting, dribbling, passing, rebounding, etc. Physical-based attributes includes attributes like strength, speed, endurance, as well as mental attributes such as awareness. If you are unsure whether the attribute you want to include is a skill-based or physical-based one, you are able to post and pose your question.

A quick example of how to let me know how you want to improve your player:

Player: 75 points
Three point shooting + 5 (20 points)
Mid range shooting + 4 (16 points)
Layup + 3 (12 points)
Stamina + 3 (24 points)
3 Points left over that cannot be spent


All-NEW Player Influence

Here is a brand new scheme that gives you more control over the fortunes of your virtual player.

Complain About Role On Team: 100 points
Demand Trade: 200 points
Demand Trade and Request Destination: 250 points

The points listed are minimum values. The more points you spend, the stronger your request will be. If you don’t like being a benchwarmer, you can complain about your role. The more points you use, the stronger your complaint will be. It may result in a teammate being traded away or you forcing your way into the starting five. For example, spend 150 points to complain about your role and you are more likely to succeed with your complaint than spending just 100 points.

If you don’t like your team, spend at least 200 points to demand a trade. To ensure your trade demand does not fall upon deaf ears, spend more points to get your point across.

There are no guarantees that your player’s wishes will be heard and the only way to get past this is to spend more points.

Points

You can accumulate points during any time of the season by participating in contests and also by posting articles that provide a different view of my story. These points may be cashed in: at the conclusion of the postseason, before the regular season begins and All-Star weekend.

Good luck!

Points As Of End Of First Round

Playoff predictions, awards predictions and other points have all been accounted for. As you will see below, all those who participated in the ‘random’ contests or posting articles have the most points. You can still post articles if you wish!

Martti. 85
Shadowgrin 30
The X 70
Lamrock 95
Valor 180
Puttincomputers 125
Durantula_MVP -30
Houndy 90
Dare 140
Thierry 45
Eirsej 110
Justine 75
De8 70
Chriso0 70
King Dee 70
Clutch 40
Newc 20
Megarover 35
Cartar 42
Mark. 5
Hova 85
George7 95
Z02 75

I remind you that grand prizes of +70, +50 and +30 points are up for grabs for the top 3 place getters in the playoff tipping comp. After Round 1, the top 6 are:

1. Dare 115
2. Valor 105
3. George7, puttincomputers, eirsej 95
4. Justine 90
5. Houndy, Chriso0 85
6.Martti, Clutch 80

Press release from Janis Kalnins after winning the Rookie of the Year trophy.

Image

First of all, I want to say, that I’m not surprised, I really deserved this trophy more than other rookies. I thank everyone, who believed in me, especially my family and friends and coaches in Latvia. I thank my previous club, Kaunas Zalgiris, to let me play real man basketball. I wouldn’t be here without you! I thank to the Minnesota Timberwolves organisation, for giving me a chance to start games, you won’t regret this. Next year I will get the Wolves into play-offs and we will win a championship in 5 years.

I now this award brings me a lot of responsibility, because all Latvians, I’d say even whole Europe are waiting for me to succeed. They hope that, I will become a star here, so that we, Europeans, could prove, that great basketball players come from there too. I’m not talking about Nowitzki or Gasol, I’m talking about a completely different level – Kobe, James and Durant level. I am confident, that I can reach it and I have made the first step, getting the Rookie of the Year trophy, already.

As for the Liam Washburn’s previous statements: I forgive him for what he said. I really understand him, he is dissapointed for not getting the award, but you can’t blame the experts that they chose the next Dirk( you know, when he wasn’t old) over a guy, who had a decent season on a mediocre team. Yeah OK, he is good, but we’re talking about the next superstar here. And I personally guarantee, that we will beat the Bucks next time we meet them.

I thank again to all the fans of Minnesota Timberwolves and fans of me as a player personally, I hope the number of you will increase after the next season, when I will lead Minnesota to the play-offs again. As for Wolves fans, you won't have to mourn about KG era any more, you have a new dominant big guy now, who will get your team into post season and hopefully get the big trophy too. Thank you again and see you next season!

CHARA SAYS THAT STEALTH SUCK; DURANT ANSWERS

Moses Chara said in a recent interview that the Seattle Stealth are "punks" and "are the suckiest team in the NBA"
"You think I'ma 'fraid of the Shits? Hell no. Those stupidasses don't even know how to play as a [expletive] team. Screw them. If you want a real champion, it's us, the Kings. The Shits better be prepared to suck our [expletive]."

Chara also said that winning the MVP proved that he was better than LeBron.

"Fuck Le[expletive]. That stupidass doesn't know when to leave a team, or when not to."

LeBron answered, saying, "When Moses Chara loses to the Stealth, then I will laugh, and burn his jersey Live on uStream."

Durant also responded.
"That little punk think's he's good? He really doesn't know who the hell he's messing with. You don't mess with the Seattle Stealth baby, especially not my team. That lil shit will pay, and trust me with pay, I mean pay."

The NBA has fined Durant and Chara $25,000 each for using expletives. James was not fined.

Wow got 115 points :D

Questions:

1. What do you love more being a GM or a Coach?
2. There are so many rumors that Reshawn Tyson is leaving the team, what are your thoughts about this?
3. At a young age, any chance to be a player/coach?

If there's one player from another team you want to have on your roster, who would it be?
If the players on your roster were involved in a fantasy draft and all of them were in their prime, who would you pick first?

2.Do the Stealth have that "Champions' Medal" in order to succeed in the playoffs?
3.Is Kevin Durant the captain at the team,or Jason Kidd with his experience deserve this more?
4.Do you plan to maintain this winning,as it seems,squad or some roster shake-ups are in mind?

1. Do you consider yourself as one of the best coaches in the NBA history?
2. Chuck Daly, Red Auerbach, Phil Jackson and Red Holzman. Those are some of the best coaches in the NBA history. In your opinion, who's the best among those four coaches? And why did you chose him?
3. Any reaction about Chara's sarcastic criticism in your team?
4. If you have a chance to build a dream team, who are the players you wish to be in your dream team?
5. If the Kings offers a trade that would send Chara to your team in exchange for Tyson, are you going to accept or reject the trade offer?
6. Do you ever change your mind after you chose coaching instead of playing basketball?

Only cause you asked bro :P

1. How does having a veteran point guard like Jason Kidd on the floor help you in coaching the team?
2. Do you think the team has what it takes to win it all this season, and why?
3. If you can only choose one player from the three choices of Moses Chara, Kevin Durant and LeBron James, who would you choose?
4. What's it like to have Sheed working with you as an assistant?
5. If you had a choice, would you take back your old GM spot and become a Coach/GM for the Stealth?

- Don't you think Shaq should just retire already?
- Provided the Stealth keep all three, how much of a problem will touches be in a potential Wu/Tyson/Durant backcourt?
- If/when Kidd retires, will you start Karl or Wu?
- So, you were a 7-11 employee before your first GM job?

First Round: Winners and Losers
By Willard Smith

Image


It was an interesting first round with most results going the ‘right’ way. We saw two lower seeds, unsurprisingly, topple higher seeds. We also saw the possible League MVP and his team struggle and two monster series from Kevin Durant and Jay Gray. Two series went to seven games while one was a sweep. And we were reminded of how much the Knicks sucked. With the first round done and dusted, let’s go through the winners and losers of the first round!

WINNER: Kevin Durant

39.4 points a game. Throw in 5.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists a game. That is what I would call TOTAL DOMINATION. And that makes Durant a WINNER in my column. This guy made sure the Blazers knew that he meant business by hitting that game winner in Game 1. He only had about 20 in Game 2 but that was more due to the Stealth shifting their focus to the defensive end. He was back at it in Games 3, 4, 5 where he shot the lights out and gave the Blazers a killer migraine. Too bad this didn’t come in the regular season as it’s not going to help his MVP chances. However, if he can lead the Stealth to a title, I think he’d take that.

WINNER: Atlanta Hawks

Speaking of titles, the defending NBA champions came out and finished the first round as the only team still undefeated in the playoffs. Boy did they hammer home the message that they are the team to beat in the Eastern Conference.

LOSER: New York Knicks

And the victims were the Knicks who just could not get it done on either end. The Knicks lost all four games by a combined 113 points. That’s a margin of 28.25 a game. That’s nearly 30 points a game. That is the definition of EMBARASSING. And that makes the Knicks one of the biggest LOSERS of the round!

WINNER: Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers

The Bulls and the Lakers both narrowly missed out on the postseason and perhaps for the better. They sat at home in their comfy surroundings as the team that made the cut got knocked out pretty quickly in the first round.

LOSER: Sacramento Kings

The Kings were pretty woeful. If they think that they are title contenders then they better think again as they could not even put away the pesky Clippers. Moses Chara is likely to win the League MVP and he started off the series strong with 42 points, 12 assists, 7 rebounds in Game 1. He then had 36 points, 8 rebounds in Game 2. For the rest of the series, he slept walked his way through. Not an impressive showing from Sacramento.

LOSER: New Orleans Hornets

The Hornets were one step worse as they were eliminated. So much for the franchise moving forward in keeping star PG Chris Paul happy. This latest development does not bode well for the Hornets.

WINNER: Rookies Stepping Up

Dallas Mavericks rookie SG Leo Lai scored 17 points in Game 7. It was the perfect timing for the Chinese rookie to step up and he indeed saved the day for his side. As impressive as that showing was, it was actually Rookie of the Year snub Liam Washburn who stepped up during the entire first round. He posted averages of 18.2 ppg, 6.8 rpg – up from his season averages of 15.7 ppg, 5.8 rpg.

WINNER: Jay Gray

Jay Gray was a beast for the Bucks. Everyone knew that he had to be if they were any shot of advancing but no one could predict the following stat lines for the first 4 games of the series:

    Game 1: 40 points, 10 rebounds
    Game 2: 32 points, 11 rebounds
    Game 3: 28 points, 11 rebounds, 8 assists
    Game 4: 29 points, 20 rebounds

Yes, Jay Gray was a monster out there. He proved that he is capable of averaging 30 points a game. Impressive considering how he must cruise during the regular season (21 ppg, 10 rpg).

WINNER: Nets Team Basketball

The Nets have so much young talent, it’s too hard to decide where to start. Six players averaged double figures during the regular season; with Travis Outlaw a shade below at 9.7 ppg. That is an amazing feat. The team basketball from the Nets continued in the postseason and that frustrated the Philadelphia 76ers who had no answers for the quick hitting Nets’ motion offence.

LOSER: Dwight Howard

Dwight Howard may be the Defensive Player of the Year and defense may win championships but Superman’s reputation took another hit with yet another first round exit. Howard did not score more than 20 points all series except for in Game 1 (he had 21). If the Magic want to advance further, they do need a more consistent scoring threat. I’m just not sure how Dwight can’t be one.

LOSER: Philadelphia 76ers

The Sixers were in a great position to win the series and advance after a brilliant season. The underachievers of seasons’ past underachieved once again as they dropped out of the NBA postseason by losing 4 games in a row. This could have been the last stand as starting point guard Zoilo Resurreccion and starting centre Byron Brock are both up for free agency this Summer. Furthermore, starters Vince Carter and Elton Brand are ancient.

LOSER: Andre Iguodala

Iggy had so much praise this season and was even in the MVP discussions but he sucked in the first round. Iggy had back to back 12 point games and that was the reason for the Sixers dropping two of their four games that eventually led to their downfall. Iggy was 9 for 39 in those two 12 point games and it will take a while for him to recover. Philly was in a great place as they led the series 2-0. Iggy choked. It’s as simple as that.

So Liam Washburn went from black hole to become a massive black hole to increase his scoring average in the playoffs?


Jay Gray. :shock:

If you’re about realism in NBA games, but you lack the experience in this type of game mode, I’d suggest starting with a player like Kwame; it really does feel like an authentic experience straight off the bat.

1. Can you say at this point now, you can win the title?
2. What are your further plans with Ty? or maybe Durant?
3. How is it feels to be winning the Coach of the Year award? Does this achievement of yours now is motivating you and can keep you to coach the Stealth next year?
