The NBA released the full list of candidates with five guys being considered for each award. According to the press release on NBA.com fans can start voting today on their website along with Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. To vote use the hashtag associated with the award along with the first and last name of the player.
“Fan-voted awards will be announced in addition to all of the NBA’s traditional end-of-season awards including Kia NBA Most Valuable Player, Kia NBA Rookie of the Year, Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year, Kia NBA Sixth Man Award, Kia NBA Most Improved Player, NBA Coach of the Year, NBA Basketball Executive of the Year, NBA Sportsmanship Award, Twyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year Award and the Season long NBA Cares Community Assist Award presented by Kaiser Permanente.”
One of the more competitive awards will probably be the #BestStyle category. James Harden and Russell Westbrook have to be considered the favorites but will an underdog like Nick Young be able to come in and pull the upset? Only the fans will be able to decide
