Coach of the Year
Played the young guns a lot of minutes and the Spurs were still No. 1 in the West. Great team chemistry and zero drama. Business as usual in San Antonio with Gregg Popovich in charge.

3. Frank Vogel Indiana Pacers

4. Doc Rivers Boston Celitcs
5. Alvin Gentry Phoenix Suns
Sixth Man
1. James Harden Oklahoma City Thunder
Stats: 16.8 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 3.7 apg
Will not be able to win this award again in many years since he looks like a bona fide All-Star already. His all-around play was key to Oklahoma City's success.
3. Jason Terry Dallas Mavericks
4. Al Harrington Denver Nuggets
5. Manu Ginobili San Antonio Spurs
Rookie of the Year
1. Kyrie Irving Cleveland Cavaliers
Stats: 18.8 ppg, 5.5 apg, 1.1 spg
Surpassed all expectations and gave the much battered Cleveland Cavaliers hope for the future. Became the obvious pick for Rookie of the Year when Rubio went down.
3. Kawhi Leonard San Antonio Spurs
4. Kenneth Faried Denver Nuggets
5. Iman Shumpert New York Knicks
Most Improved Player
1. Jeremy Lin New York Knicks
Stats: 14.6 ppg, 6.2 apg, 3.1 rpg
Talk about taking advantage of opportunities... Lin went from fringe NBA player to world star in a week and gave the Knicks a boost in the process.
3. Ryan Anderson Orlando Magic
4. Goran Dragic Houston Rockets
5. Nikola Pekovic Minnesota Timberwolves
Defensive Player of the Year
1. Dwight Howard Orlando Magic
Stats: 14.5 rpg, 2.2 bpg, 1.5 spg
It was Dwightmare off the court, but same old Dwight Howard when it was time to play. Even with all the distractions, Howard was able to average a career-high 14.5 rpg.
3. Serge Ibaka Oklahoma City Thunder
4. Tyson Chandler New York Knicks
5. Josh Smith Atlanta Hawks

Executive of the Year
1. RC Buford San Antonio Spurs Danny Ferry
