NBL's Valentine's Day Greats of 2017Tweet
CONGRATULATIONS to the NBL. They got all the awards right, Jerome Randle easily the most obvious favourite and clearly the year's stand-out player as MVP.
Nathan Sobey also was odds-on in the Most Improved award and Sixers coach Joey Wright obvious for Coach of the Year.
There was not a lot wrong with the awards presentation, but that's what you get when Matt Russell is helming.
The live stream carrying the auction? That was seriously dim.
But why bicker when so much was right on the night?
Here's your annual B.O.T.I. pictorial tribute to the men who mattered most:
