On the plus side, a 66-game schedule moved All-Star Weekend up to the actual midseason point.

Essentially, we're at halftime, folks.

As well or as poorly as certain teams have done, they're only halfway to the finish line. There is still time to figure things out, and still time to make a mess of things.

Without further ado, we present our NBA midseason awards, which might not mean a thing when the regular season ends in late April.


1. LeBron James, Miami (27.4 ppg; 8.1 apg; 6.8 rpg; 1.8 spg; .547 FG): James' efficiency numbers are through the roof and are at an all-time high — not only for him but also in league history. And voting concludes before the playoffs begin.

2. Kevin Durant, Thunder (27.9 ppg; 8.1 rpg; 3,4 apg; 1.4 spg; 1.2 bpg; .513 FG;): Points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks and field-goal percentage are all up from last season. What else can you ask from this perpetually improving superstar?

3. Chris Paul, LA Clippers (19.2 ppg; 8.6 apg; 2.3 spg): This consummate conductor is driving a potential runaway train. As anticipated, Paul's impact has been immediate and significant. Thanks primarily to CP3, the Clippers are no joke.

4. Kobe Bryant, LA Lakers (28.4 ppg; 5.8 rpg; 4.9 apg): Amazingly, Bryant is in his 16th season. Equally amazing, he doesn't appear to have lost any of his competitive fire. Though talented, the Lakers will go only as far as Bryant takes them.

5. Tony Parker, San Antonio (19.4 ppg; 8.1 apg): With teammate Manu Ginobili sidelined with injuries, Parker has taken command and kept the Spurs as a Western Conference power. Erupted for 42 points against the Thunder on Feb. 4.


1. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland (18.1 ppg; 5.1 apg; 3.5 rpg; .476 FG): Being able to live up to his advanced billing seemed to be darn-near impossible for Irving, yet he has excelled for a coach extremely demanding of points guards in Byron Scott.
