GSoM NBA Preview: Picking the Hardware

This is how it will go down this season:

Eastern Conference Champ
Miami Heat
  Young teams get their fans' hopes up. Older teams win titles.
Western Conference Champ
Phoenix Suns
  Our friends at SunsGossip think the Suns are going 82-0. That's probably not going to happen, but with Amare dunking on fools this should be the year they break from the Western Conference pack
NBA Finals Champ
Miami Heat
  Anything to get Pat Riley to dance to Yung Joc again!
Kobe Bryant
  Kobe was robbed last season. He knows it. Phil knows it. Steve Nash knows it. And you know it. He's going to play like a man possessed this year. Not that he doesn't do that every season.
Coach of the Year
Don Nelson
  If you can take the Warriors to the promised land (in the Bay Area we call that the 8th seed in the playoffs and a first round sweep), you're good enough for Coach of the Century in the NBA.
Rookie of the Year
Brandon Roy
  Roy for ROY just sounds hot.
6th Man of the Year
Earl Boykins
  The man's so good he makes killin' elephants cool.
Most Improved Player
Dwight Howard
  In a few years he'll be competing for MVP honors.
Comeback Player of the Year
Dajuan Wagner
  Look out for that floater and more on this feel good story! Amare could win it too.
Executive of the Year
John Paxson (Bulls)
  The Bulls' moves this offseason were a little overrated, but they were still pretty solid.


Who will be walking away with the trophies this year? Post your picks in the comments section and we'll see who did the best guesswork after the NBA Finals in June.
