The MVP voting was announced yesterday, and to no surprise, there weren't any Celtics in contention:
Final MVP results, via @NBA.com. Curry wins, Harden second, LeBron third. Brad Stevens did not receive any votes... http://t.co/KuJ1q1bvbS— CelticsLife.com (@CelticsLife) May 4, 2015
However, consider the following:
Isaiah Thomas finished second for Sixth Man of the Year. Danny Ainge finished fourth for Executive of the Year. Brad Stevens also finished fourth for Coach of the Year. And finally, Marcus Smart was fifth in the Rookie of the Year balloting. All in all, not a bad awards-season haul for a team that entered 2014-15 with no expectations for success.
On the other hand, we have the Brooklyn Nets:
Not one member of the Nets organization has received a single vote for any end-of-year award.— devin kharpertian (@uuords) May 4, 2015
That's not a very encouraging sign for Brooklyn's immediate future, but it does bode well for the franchise that potentially gets the Nets' first round draft pick in each of the next three seasons.
