And The Award Goes To ...

If it is the Oscars , The Raptors will surely named The Best Picture . It's because it's main stars swept all individual awards the NBA handed for the month of January . First , Chris Bosh was named Player Of The Month . It is CB4 first of such award and definitely not the last based on his performance. The 1st time All Star starter for the Eastern conference averaged 25.4 points and 9.1 rebounds for January . He beat other leading men of winning teams like Jason Kidd and Richard Hamilton . Raptors fans are hoping the award will push the 6'10'' forward to lead the team deeper into the playoffs . He, he , he . Why not insure a slot in the playoffs first .
Then, there is Andrea Bargnani being named the Eastern Conference Rookie Of The Month. After a slow start , the #1 pick in this year's draft is showing why Bryan Colangelo chose him . He displayed tremendous game after coach Sam Mitchell increased his playing time . Andrea, who normally is the 1st man off the bench , gave the Raps the much needed support with his accurate 3 pointers and lately, the drives to the basket . He averaged 11.1 points and 3.1 rebounds for January . However , Il Mago better break that rookie wall soon to get back into the groove again . Il Mago will need more of his magic to cop the ROY award this year . Definitely, no camera tricks allowed !
The most surprising awardee , except perhaps to his lapdog , Darrick Martin , was the coach of the month , Sam Mitchell. Sam directed a bunch of overachievers to a 10 - 5 (.665) record .The players willingly followed Sam and played as one . Sam is like noted film Director , Ang Lee. An underdog coming out as the Top Dog . Sam beat Lawrence Olivier , I mean , Lawrence Frank for the award . To think that just a few months ago , the critics were saying Sam was a goner . The man is a real survivor ... and a winner too. But remember Sam , there is a saying in the movie industry , you are only as good as your last picture .
