The regular NBA season 2021-22 is finally over. While most of the attention will turn to the games of the off-season, there are still some prizes to be awarded. Just as there is going to be endless debate about Nikola Jokic and Joel Embiid for the first-team All-NBA (at least for those who choose not to put two centers on their first team), the Twitter battles over this year’s MVP race may never end.

This may very well end up being the closest vote ever. You can not go wrong with marking Jokic, Embiid or Giannis Antetokounmpo as your MVP. I’m taking Jokic. As you can see below, most of my CBS colleagues do too.

In addition to MVP, we voted Rookie of the Year, Defender of the Year, Sixth Man of the Year, Most Improved Player, Coach of the Year and Executive of the Year. Read them and cry (and take it easy with our reviews).
