[Highly debatable. Blanchfield, Mooney and Hopson were better across 3 games, your bias is out of this world.]

Hopson had like a -22 or something in game 2! He was scoring but also being scored on

Landale ridiculously efficient and was MVP of his series by a magnitude of Landale then daylight, then more daylight, then more daylight, then whoever else

Blanchfield very good on the other side too, I'll admit

The case for Landale thought is based on him dragging United back from the dead by hitting 11 shots in a row in Game 3, after being unstoppable in game 1 also.

Game 2 be struggled even notwithstanding foul trouble but he was absolutely most influential in both United wins

Thinking about Landale and Mooney, what stands out is their incredible shooting efficiency, both inside and outside.

That we have a pair of 5 men shooting the 3 ball that efficiently is a good example of the evolution of basketball.

They're genuine bigs who can post up too, both of them. They aren't guys who's preferred scoring method is 3's- like Barlow or Kickert.

They're legit big men who just have a 3 point shot in their arsenal and can hit at an efficient clip. Historically there haven't been players that efficient in the NBL.

Good to see Gleeson finally recognised.

All NBL first team, really picked itself. I'm sure most of us had that 5.

Second team is a bit iffy. Not sure how macaron makes it ahead of Machado??

I don't mind Simon getting the Damo ahead of Norton, but the voting seems out of whack.

Cotton tallied 112 votes after his terrific season, beating out the second placed Tyler Harvey on 74 votes and third placed Nathan Sobey on 55 votes.

Damian Martin Trophy for the Best Defensive Player
Justin Simon (Illawarra) - 56 votes
Tom Abercrombie (New Zealand) – 29 votes
Mitch Norton (Perth) – 26 votes

Cotton won comfortably, and rightly so.

There were more than three nominees for each award, and they're only releasing the top three vote-winners. There will be different distributions of votes for nominees four and down.

Actually the maths doesn't add up on it being 5-4-3-2-1 either. Is it just coach and captain who votes?

Does one assistant coach per team get a vote too? Then the 5-4-3-2-1 method works, meaning Cotton was almost unanimously given first place votes.

Yes, seems to be 3 voters per team.
That would give a total of 405 votes for MVP, with a maximum of 145 for one player.

The voting for All-NBL has me intrigued. Would seem to be only 2 Voters for that.
