Defensive Player of the Year

As I’ve said before, I think there should be separate guard/forward DPOYs but, since that’s a fantasy, I’ll go with the consensus: Leonard or Green.

Sixth Man of the Year

Tristan Thompson has started a lot of games so it feels weird but, until the rules change, I think he is the clear winner.

Most Improved Player

I have no opinion on this.

Coach of the Year

Luke Walton/Steve Kerr, if it’s possible for two people to win it for the same team.
