圣安东尼奥马刺队中锋文班亚马 (1) 在周三在弗罗斯特银行中心的 NBA 比赛下半场奋力争抢,而俄克拉荷马城雷霆队中锋切特·霍姆格伦 (7) 则准备抢下篮板。俄克拉荷马城以 140-114 击败马刺队。

不出所料,NBA 在周日宣布,马刺队中锋文班亚马入围了年度最佳新秀和年度最佳防守球员的最终候选名单。

俄克拉荷马城的切特·霍姆格伦和夏洛特的布兰登·米勒是最佳新秀奖的其他候选人。文班亚马被认为是获奖的锁定期人选,他在每场比赛 29.7 分钟的时间里,场均可以得到 21.4 分、10.6 个篮板、3.9 次助攻和 3.6 次盖帽。

明尼苏达的鲁迪·戈贝尔和迈阿密的巴姆·阿德巴约是最佳防守球员奖的其他候选人。虽然文班亚马在盖帽数方面领先全联盟,但戈贝尔被认为是夺冠热门,他在防守端排名第一,联盟防守胜利贡献值达到 0.164。

如果戈贝尔获胜,这将是他第四次捧起这项奖杯,使他成为 NBA 历史上仅有的三名取得这一成就的球员之一。其他两位是迪肯贝·穆托姆博和本·华莱士。

没有新秀曾当选过年度最佳防守球员。

TNT 将在其季后赛报道期间公布每个奖项的获奖者。

每个年度奖项的三名最终候选人根据全球体育记者和播音员的投票结果而产生。每个选民对每个奖项的完整选票将在宣布所有赛季末奖项后发布在 pr.nba.com

As expected, Wembanyama a finalist for two of NBA’s annual awards

[Image] San Antonio Spurs center Victor Wembanyama (1) stretches for a rebound going to Oklahoma City Thunder center Chet Holmgren (7) during the second half of their NBA game at the Frost Bank Center on Wednesday, Jan. 24, 2024. Oklahoma City beat the Spurs 140-114.

As expected, the NBA announced on Sunday that Spurs center Victor Wembanyama is a finalist for rookie of the year and defensive player of the year.

Oklahoma City’s Chet Holmgren and Charlotte’s Brandon Miller are the other finalists for the rookie award. Wembanyama is considered a lock for the honor after averaging averaging 21.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 3.6 blocks in 29.7 minutes per game.

Minnesota’s Rudy Gobert and Miami’s Bam Adebayo are the other finalists for the defensive honor. Although Wembanyama led the league in blocks per game, Gobert is considered the favorite after anchoring the NBA’s top-ranked defense and leading the league in defensive win-shares at 0.164.

If Gobert wins, it will be the fourth time he’s collected the trophy, making him one of only three players in NBA history to achieve that feat. The others are Dikembe Mutombo and Ben Wallace.

No rookie has ever been named defensive player of the year.

TNT will reveal the winner of each award during its coverage of the playoffs.

The three finalists for each annual award are based on voting results from a global panel of sportswriters and broadcasters. Each voter’s complete ballot for each award will be posted at pr.nba.com after the announcement of all end-of-season awards.

Here’s a list of all the finalists announced Sunday:

蒂姆·邦滕普斯,ESPN 2024 年 4 月 21 日,美国东部时间下午 07:15

NBA 于周日晚上公布了本赛季七项主要个人奖项的每项的三名入围决赛者,由连续四个赛季入围 MVP 决赛的尼古拉·约基奇和圣安东尼奥马刺队中锋维克托·文班亚马领衔,他们入围了年度最佳新秀和年度最佳防守球员的决赛。

约基奇所在的丹佛掘金队在周六晚上战胜洛杉矶湖人队后开启了季后赛,他在 2021 年和 2022 年赢得 MVP,去年仅次于费城 76 人队的乔尔·恩比德。

恩比德和密尔沃基雄鹿队的扬尼斯·阿德托昆博在过去两个赛季都与约基奇一起入围 MVP 决赛,但他们本赛季被俄克拉荷马雷霆队后卫谢伊·吉尔杰斯-亚历山大和小牛队后卫卢卡·东契奇所取代。

约基奇本赛季场均 26.4 分、12.4 个篮板和 9.0 次助攻,掘金队在西部联盟与吉尔杰斯-亚历山大的雷霆队并列第一。俄克拉何马城通过附加赛获得了西部联盟季后赛第一种子席位。

吉尔杰斯-亚历山大本赛季场均 30.1 分、5.5 个篮板、6.2 次助攻和 2.0 次抢断。东契奇以场均 33.9 分领跑全联盟,另有 9.2 个篮板和 9.8 次助攻,小牛队在首轮系列赛中以 109-97 输给了洛杉矶快船队。

年度最佳新秀的入围决赛选手没有什么惊喜,2023 年选秀中的前两顺位文班亚马和夏洛特黄蜂队前锋布兰登·米勒,以及 2022 年第二顺位雷霆队中锋切特·霍尔姆格伦一同入围。

文班亚马在他的第一个马刺赛季中创造了几项纪录,场均 21.4 分、10.6 个篮板、3.9 次助攻、3.6 次盖帽和 1.2 次抢断,而霍尔姆格伦在本赛季为俄克拉荷马城场均得到 16.5 分和 7.9 个篮板,上赛季因脚伤缺席。米勒本赛季场均 17.4 分,并命中 184 个三分球。

此前曾三次获得年度最佳防守球员奖并从 2017 年到 2022 年入围决赛的明尼苏达森林狼队中锋鲁迪·戈贝尔,与文班亚马和迈阿密热火队中锋巴姆·阿德巴约一起领衔今年的决赛。

戈贝尔带领明尼苏达以联盟最佳的防守等级,场均 12.9 个篮板和 2.1 次盖帽。阿德巴约是联盟中最全能的大个子之一,场均 10.4 个篮板,再加上每场一次抢断和一次盖帽,而文班亚马作为一个新秀成为了盖帽和抢断机器,尤其是在赛季中期完全转为中锋位置之后。

最有进步球员奖项通常是投票方面最复杂的奖项之一,因为没有既定的标准,入围决赛的球员包括 76 人队的后卫泰雷斯·马克西、芝加哥公牛队后卫科比·怀特和休斯顿火箭队中锋阿勒佩伦·申京。

马克西入选了他的第一个全明星阵容,场均 25.9 分和 6.2 次助攻。怀特获得生涯最高的场均 19.1 分和 5.1 次助攻,申京为休斯顿场均得到 21.1 分、9.3 个篮板和 5.0 次助攻。

与此同时,第六人奖的评选由萨克拉门托国王队后卫马利克·蒙克、森林狼队中锋纳兹·里德和雄鹿队前锋鲍比·波蒂斯领衔。

蒙克在赛季最后几周因膝盖受伤缺阵前,为萨克拉门托场均得到 15.4 分和 5.1 次助攻。里德已经成长为联盟中最好的替补大个子之一,场均 13.5 分和 5.2 个篮板——这两项都创下职业生涯新高——帮助明尼苏达获得西部联盟第三种子。

波蒂斯为雄鹿场均得到 13.8 分和 7.4 个篮板,在密尔沃基对阵印第安纳步行者的首轮系列赛中,他将扮演更大的角色,因为阿德托昆博开局因小腿受伤而缺阵。

连续第二年,俄克拉荷马城的马克·戴格诺特获得年度最佳教练奖前三名,与奥兰多魔术队教练贾马尔·莫斯利和明尼苏达的克里斯·芬奇一起入围。

在莫斯利手下,年轻的魔术队拥有联盟中最好的防守之一,并取得了东南赛区冠军。芬奇带领明尼苏达取得 56 场胜利,是球队历史上的第二高胜利场数。

公牛队前锋德马尔·德罗赞是去年设立的年度最佳关键时刻球员奖的重复入围者。他与金州勇士队后卫斯蒂芬·库里和吉尔杰斯-亚历山大一起入围。

NBA 将在接下来几周内公布每个奖项的获胜者,以及全 NBA、全防守和全新秀阵容的评选结果。

Wembanyama, Jokic headline NBA award finalists

Tim Bontemps, ESPNApr 21, 2024, 07:15 PM ET

The NBA unveiled the three finalists for each of its seven major individual awards for the 2023-24 regular season Sunday night, headlined by Nikola Jokic, an MVP finalist for a fourth straight season, and San Antonio Spurs center Victor Wembanyama, a finalist for Rookie of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year.

Jokic, whose Denver Nuggets opened the playoffs with a victory over the Los Angeles Lakers Saturday night, won the MVP in 2021 and 2022 and finished second behind the Philadelphia 76ers’ Joel Embiid last year.

Embiid and the Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo were MVP finalists alongside Jokic each of the past two seasons, but they were replaced this season by Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic.

Jokic concluded the regular season averaging 26.4 points, 12.4 rebounds and 9.0 assists for Denver, which finished tied atop the Western Conference with Gilgeous-Alexander’s Thunder. Oklahoma City claimed the West’s top playoff seed on a tiebreaker.

Gilgeous-Alexander averaged 30.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 2.0 steals this season. Doncic led the league in scoring, averaging 33.9 points, to go along with 9.2 rebounds and 9.8 assists for the Mavericks, who opened their first-round series against the LA Clippers with a 109-97 loss Sunday.

There were no surprises among the finalists for Rookie of the Year, with the top two picks in the 2023 draft – Wembanyama and Charlotte Hornets forward Brandon Miller – joined by the 2022 second overall pick, Thunder center Chet Holmgren.

Wembanyama set several records in his first season with the Spurs, averaging 21.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 3.6 blocks and 1.2 steals, while Holmgren averaged 16.5 points and 7.9 rebounds for Oklahoma City after missing last season with a foot injury. Miller averaged 17.4 points and made 184 3-pointers this season.

Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert, who previously won three Defensive Player of the Year awards and was a finalist from 2017 to 2022, leads this year’s finalists, alongside Wembanyama and Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo.

Gobert led Minnesota to the league’s best defensive rating and averaged 12.9 rebounds and 2.1 blocks. Adebayo, one of the league’s most versatile big men, averaged 10.4 rebounds plus a steal and a block per game, while Wembanyama became a block and steal machine as a rookie, especially after shifting to center full-time midway through the season.

The field for Most Improved Player, often one of the more complicated awards in terms of voting because there’s no set criteria, includes 76ers guard Tyrese Maxey, Chicago Bulls guard Coby White and Houston Rockets center Alperen Sengun.

Maxey made his first All-Star team while averaging 25.9 points and 6.2 assists. White averaged career highs of 19.1 points and 5.1 assists, and Sengun averaged 21.1 points, 9.3 rebounds and 5.0 assists for Houston.

The Sixth Man of the Year voting, meanwhile, was led by Sacramento Kings guard Malik Monk, Timberwolves center Naz Reid and Bucks forward Bobby Portis.

Monk averaged 15.4 points and 5.1 assists for Sacramento before missing the final weeks of the season with a knee injury. Reid has developed into one of the top-scoring bench bigs in the league, averaging 13.5 points and 5.2 rebounds – both career highs – to help Minnesota clinch the third seed in the Western Conference.

Portis averaged 13.8 points and 7.4 rebounds for the Bucks and will step into a much bigger role in Milwaukee’s first-round series against the Indiana Pacers, with Antetokounmpo sidelined at the start because of a calf injury.

For the second straight year, Oklahoma City’s Mark Daigneault finished among the top three in Coach of the Year voting, joined by Orlando Magic coach Jamahl Mosley and Minnesota’s Chris Finch.

Under Mosley, a young Magic team boasted one of the league’s best defenses and claimed the Southeast Division crown. And Finch led Minnesota to 56 wins, second most in franchise history.

Bulls forward DeMar DeRozan is a repeat finalist for the Clutch Player of the Year award, which was created last year. He’s joined by Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry and Gilgeous-Alexander.

The NBA will announce each of the award winners – as well as the selections for the All-NBA, All-Defense and All-Rookie teams – over the next couple of weeks.
