HITS Daily Double


If you’re like us, you often wonder, what’s Jeff Kwatinetz been up to lately? Welp, we were reading a release from the National Basketball Players Association confirming the first annual Basketball Players Awards in Vegas this July, in which active NBA players do the voting themselves. "We as players want the opportunity to recognize our peers,” Carmelo Anthony stated for the record between rounds of golf. “We are making that happen with our own award show."

What does the above news have to do with Kwatman? The release concludes as follows: “The NBPA has engaged entertainment, management and production experts Prospect Park to help produce the awards ceremony.” Jeff has also volunteered to Uber the winning players to and from the airport.

But while we’re on the subject, players are voting in the following categories:

  • Most Valuable Player
  • Best Rookie
  • Man of the Year
  • Best Defender
  • Global Impact Player
  • Hardest to Guard
  • Clutch Performer
  • Coach You Would Want to Play For
  • Best Home Court Advantage
  • Player You Secretly Wish Was on Your Team

The televising network hasn’t yet been revealed. Whover airs the special, think of it as something to watch during those deadly dull weeks between the NBA Draft and the football season. Thanks, Kwat, for making the dog days more bearable.
