New NBA awards: pick the winners now

We’re working on something new.

It’s called the Idea Machine, and it will be a way for you, for us at TrueHoop, and for others involved in basketball to bring ideas to a larger audience. Especially you.

The Idea Machine will be unveiled in stages in the coming weeks and months, and we’ll have lots of ways for you to put in your ideas.

In fact, let’s start right now.

We want to know: Which new awards would you like to see in the NBA?

Forget the standard stuff: MVP, Coach of the Year, etc.

Let’s juice up awards season. To submit your ideas, use the conversation area below or email us at basketball.idea.machine@gmail.com.

We’ll pick some of the best ideas and give you the opportunity to vote.

While we’re brainstorming, here are a few ideas to prime the pump and get this machine rolling:

  • Best trade

  • Best team cohesion

  • Best highlight

  • Best player for the money

  • Most watchable player

  • Best quote

Whatcha got?
