NBA Daily Awards

Quick reminder for all you hoops fans that I have my NBA Awards posted every weekday at SportsCity.com. Below are today’s awards so you can get a feel for what they’re all about.  Hundreds of old awards going back a couple seasons are archived there as well.
The Akeem Olajuwon Award  Zach Randolph — 31 pts, 18 reb, 1 asst, 7 FTM, 1 stl, 0 blk, 0 treys, and 12-18 FG%…As mentioned yesterday, Zach is one of just 3 guys averaging 20 & 10 this season, at 20.9 pts and 11.9 rebs.  He burst onto the scene in the 2003 NBA Playoffs, averaging 14 pts and 8.7 rebs after just 8.4 and 4.4 during that regular season.  He went for 20.1 and 10.5 the next season, his first of four career 20/10 seasons.  His reputation has gotten a boost in the last couple years after his early Portland days where he was known for being talented, but selfish on the court and troubled off it.   
The Luc Longley Award:   RonaldFlip’ Murray — 4 pts, 2 reb, 2 asst, 2 FTM, 0 stl, 0 blk, 0 treys, and 1-7 shooting in 18 minutes…Murray is the prototypical journeyman, undersized SG/combo guard.  He’s on his 5th team in the last 28 months, 3rd team in the last 12 months, 8th team total in his 8 year career.  He first made a splash with the Sonics in 2003-04, going off for 20+ pts every 3 or 4 games.  His career averages are 9.9 pts, 2.0 rebs, 2.3 dimes, and 41.5% shooting – journeyman through and through.
