Bubble Studs


Damian Lillard Named Bubble MVP, Monty Williams Named Top Coach

The NBA has unveiled its small sample kings.

On Saturday morning, the league announced Damian Lillard the bubble most valuable player, while Monty Williams of the Phoenix Suns was honoured as the top coach after leading his team to a perfect 8-0 record.

… But no playoff appearance – moving on.

The league also released its First and Second All-Seeding teams:

  • First: Damian Lillard, Devin Booker, James Harden, TJ Warren, and Luka Doncic
  • Second: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kawhi Leonard, Kristaps Porzingis, Caris LeVert, Michael Porter Jr.

Lillard helped push the Blazers into a play-in round against the upstart Memphis Grizzlies, averaging 37.2 points and 9.6 assists per game. He also scored 51, 61, and 42 points in his final three regular season games.

Warren has been a pleasant surprise in the bubble after scoring 53 points in his bubble debut and averaging 31 points across his eight games. Meanwhile, Booker has been absolutely incredible, leading the Suns on a magical undefeated run, coming oh so close to a playoff berth.

The eight bubble games did not count toward the league’s traditional regular season awards.
