IGN's 2007 NBA Player of the Year

Dirk Nowitski, a popular video game resource site, has chosen Dirk Nowitski for its 2007 NBA Player of the Year award. According to the site:

"Although the Spurs were the consummate team and came together in the playoffs, no one stood out more in 2007 than Dirk Nowitzki, who took huge steps forward as a defender and as a teammate, scoring more efficiently while setting a career-high in assists.

Runners-up for the award were the San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan and the Cleveland Cavs' Lebron James. Both these players enjoyed a trip to the NBA finals, with Duncan's team recapturing the title and perhaps etching its name amongst the NBA's great dynasties. Lebron James continues to improve, and there's no doubt that this still young phenom is going to win at least a few awards before his career is over.

For it's 2007 Team of the Year, IGN chose the NBA champion Spurs over all other major sports teams. IGN states the Spurs team and organization is one that any pro team would love to embody. Read more here
