Coach of the Year: Brett Brown, Philadelphia 76ers

It's amazing what a few healthy bodies and some veteran leadership can do for a struggling organization with a not-so-stellar reputation.

Brown endured four years of "The Process" before ending up with a roster he could find success with. Having the appropriate pieces in place isn't enough, though, as there has to be a respected voice behind the marching orders. Brown was that voice, and is worthy of recognition for helping increase Philly's win total by 24 games. - Walder

Barton barely qualifies (he started 40 of 81 games), but the sixth-year guard made it difficult to leave him off the list, averaging 15.7 points, five boards, and 4.1 assists per game.

His reputation as a gunslinger didn't change, but he continues to improve his efficiency, as his percentages across the board were career highs. He shot 45.2 percent from the field and hit 37 percent on 5.2 threes per game. - Saghir

Drummond looked lost at times during the 2016-17 season, but he righted the ship this year on the offensive side of the ball.

Rookie of the Year: Kyle Kuzma, Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers' top rookie wasn't the second overall pick out of Chino Hills, instead, he was a late-round sleeper who built momentum during an impressive stint in the Summer League.

Kuzma ranked second among all rookies with 16.1 points per game, which was also a team high. He's a building block the franchise should continue to put more emphasis on in the years ahead, and one they're fortunate to have found as deep in the draft as they did. - Walder

Defensive Player of the Year: Al Horford, Boston Celtics

Horford didn't necessarily get snubbed for a DPOTY nod considering who he was going up against, but he deserves an honorable mention.

Horford didn't tear up the NBA in any metric, but he was the anchor of the Celtics' league-best defense during the regular season, something that's continued into the playoffs. - Chick

It's easy to forget how great Lillard was this season after getting annihilated in the postseason, but the 3-time All-Star led the overachieving Blazers to the third best record in the jam packed Western Conference. He finished fourth in the NBA in points with 26.9 to go along with 4.5 rebounds and 6.6 assists.
