2018 NBA Award Finalists and Predictions

NBA Awards Announced: Breakdown and Predictions for Special Night

Amidst a very competitive Conference Finals, the NBA has announced its annual award finalists!

With a start-studded lineup of names, the winners will be announced at the NBA Awards show on June 25 in Santa Monica, California, following the NBA Playoffs and the Draft. The Inside the NBA crew of Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, and Ernie Johnson are set to host the event for a second consecutive year.

One of the more interesting names on the list of finalists is that of Dwane Casey, the former Toronto Raptors head coach who will attend the event as a free agent.

Of course for the hell of it, we decided to not only announce the list of finalists, but to make our predictions as well!
