Dont worry about talking 2nd or 3rd - the gap between Jackson & the rest is large!

Ingles, think that discredits your opinions. Completely off track. Pledger? Forman? Seriously!?

Gibson in the top 3 is about right. Although, I do agree that if your team struggles you can't win. Doesn't seem to matter that much in the NBL.

I agree with that list (on and the foul) maybe have Gibo higher than Pledger.

Marty on his way to his three peat of worst coach of the year. At least you can say he is consistent.

re: NBL Award Race So Far

MVP (not sure how anyone can argue with andthefoul.net's MVP picks)
1. Cedrick Jackson
2. Ben Madgen
3. Gary Ervin

RoY (no contest)
1. Cam Gliddon

6th Man (flair vs consistency)
1. Adris Deleon
2. Anthony Petrie

MIP
1. Ben Madgen
2. Rhys Martin
3. Chris Goulding
4. Todd Blanchfield

Only category I would take some issue with andthefoul.net is Most Improved from 2-onwards... but since Madgen is a lock it doesn't really matter in the end.

Rhys Martin/Chris Goulding/Todd Blanchfield/Lucas Walker/Brad Hill are interchangable - IMO

Heal and McLeod are the COTY contenders, IMO. Lemanis is doing fine with a bit less than last year, but Heal's results have been excellent considering his squad.

Jackson is almost automatic for the MVP and a potential earner @ $2.75.

The only risk to this I can see is going to the NBA.

Surely anyone thinking of getting a guard from the NBL would look at Jackson as well as Flynn.

I doubt Jackson will leave the NBL mid season for another short term contract in the NBA. He wants a regular gig and has more chance of that happening by guiding the Breakers to the 3peat and winning both MVP and Finals MVP awards and then hitting States.

He'd still leave in a heartbeat if any NBA team offered him a 10-day contract.

Pledger no where near MVP level.

Thought he was a MIP candidate, but then looked at his stats and realised he isn't actually.

COTY has to be Heal at this point..He is doing a great job.

Clarke was asking about an award for the League's most minutes.
Given the Weigh-Clarke relationship , Kristina let fly with a wise-crack : ' You should give him a heart-shaped box of chocolates . '

MACDUB, he's up from 15 to 22 MPG, yet his stats have barely risen. Percentages down too. Hanging his hat on BPG.

re: NBL Award Race So Far

Though I agree Pledger isn't an MVP candidate. I don't think the small rise in stats is a true indication of how much he has improved.

Next time the Breakers play watch the man who is guarding him. His man usually doesn't help much on penetration and stays connected to him to take away easy catch and finishes and offensive boards and he gets squeezed on the majority of on balls to make it harder to roll because if he gets an advantage going to the rim its over. Last year people would just leave him to challenge guys at the rim and leave him open for dunks and O boards, but he gets defended very differently now and he gets very few of those easy ones. Plus he is probably the best defensive big in the league, he isn't just a shot blocker.

Just for comparison purposes look at Abercrombies numbers from his last season as a bench guy (2009,10) and first year as a starter (first championship year) . Not much statistical improvement, but a way better player for sure

Lol at people having Ervin top 3 in MVP.

Gibbo would be in the top 5-10 range but certainly not top 3.

Blanchfield would get my vote for MIP.

re: NBL Award Race So Far

good post anon, Pledger's defensive footwork is much improved and I would have him only marginally behind Jackson as DPOTY.

I would vote Magden as MIP
