NBL MVP Ladder: Demitrius Conger is our pick, in an extremely tight race
IT’S been a tight race all season, and there’s really no telling who’s actually going to win this award.
We’ve done our best to tally votes after each game, acting as the head coaches, in an attempt to accurately pick the 2018 NBL MVP, based on the league’s voting system.
There are only a few points separating our top five picks, but, at the end of the day, we had the Illawarra Hawks’ Demitrius Conger as the winner of the Andrew Gaze Trophy.
Perth Wildcats duo, Bryce Cotton and J.P. Tokoto, weren’t far behind, followed by Josh Boone and Mitch McCarron.
DEMITRIUS CONGER, ILLAWARRA HAWKS
Conger was an incredible find for Rob Beveridge, with the import wing emerging as one of the most consistent players over the course of the season.
The 27-year-old had a promising pre-season, and that carried over tot he regular season, where he averaged 19.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 2.7 assists a game, while shooting the ball at an impressive rate.
It’s not ideal giving the MVP award to a player on a team that didn’t qualify for the post-season, but Conger, in our books, did enough to take it.
