I'm conflicted.

Part of me thinks this is an extension of participation trophy culture. Like, let's find more ways to award and celebrate people. It feels unnecessary.

On the other hand, I suppose it's a way to honor past greats as well.

I don't know. I guess I'd say that this didn't feel necessary. I don't think this filled a void or solved a problem.
It's okay. I don't think anyone will use these awards as any measuring stick though. X-player is a 2 time scoring champion, 1 time Finals MVP....AND 3 TIME LARRY BIRD AWARD WINNER. Doubt that's going to come up in barbershop debates.

Should have a playoffs MVP instead.
This!

Or better yet include the playofffs in mvp voting.

This isn’t necessary and it’s not something I care about. We barely remember the finals MVP.

I don’t have a problem with this. Winning the conference is a huge accomplishment team wise. Would be interesting to determine who would be the best player in a conference final. It wouldn’t mean as much as a Finals MVP obviously

Baseball does
I know you were just answering his question but nobody cares about baseball. Also I had no idea baseball did this. I’ve heard of those other awards but never heard of this one.

I'm actually cool with this. If you're running through your conference, you deserve some sort of acknowledgement.
