2016-17 NBA Awards: Naming Favorites in Each Category Through November

The NBA doesn't hand out its major awards—Most Improved Player, Coach of the Year, Sixth Man of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and Most Valuable Player—until the season has run its course.

But we're jumping the gun here, turning yearly awards into monthly honors and rewarding those who have performed best up to the relevant point in the season.

Prepare for the hardware.
