At the NBA Awards, Mike Conley earned some hardware

On Monday night, the NBA Awards took place. Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo took home the big award of the night: MVP. But the ‘Greek Freak’ only won one award. A former member of the Ohio State Buckeyes, however, brought home two awards—both of them player voted.

Mike Conley wrapped up his time with the Memphis Grizzlies by winning the Twyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year Award and NBA Sportsmanship Award. For the Teammate of the Year honor, Conley led the field with 55 first-place votes (worth 10 points each) and 67 second-place votes (worth seven points each).
