A couple of hours before Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs, David Stern and the NBA will give out the inaugural Twyman-Stokes Award to honor the top teammate of the season in the NBA. The award is named after Jack Twyman and Maurice Stokes, both of whom are in the Basketball Hall of Fame, and who hail from Pittsburgh, Pa., and played on the Rochester/Cincinnati Royals together from 1955 to 1958.
Hopefully Money Mason wins.
