This is a bad decision to announced the new award all of the sudden. Tell the Public at the very beginning of the season

I'd give my vote to Sacre as well

The announcement and presentation of the Twyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year Award will be made before Game 2 of the 2013 Finals Sunday evening at AmericanAirlines Arena.
The winner was chosen from a vote of NBA players. Ballots featured 12 nominees, six from each conference selected by a panel of NBA Legends according to selfless play, on- and off-court leadership as a mentor and role model to other NBA players and his commitment and dedication to his team.
Finalists for the inaugural Twyman/Stokes Award were Jerry Stackhouse (Brooklyn Nets), Luke Walton(Cleveland Cavaliers), Andre Iguodala (Denver Nuggets), Jarrett Jack (Golden State Warriors), Roy Hibbert (Indiana Pacers), Chauncey Billups (Los Angeles Clippers), Shane Battier (Miami Heat), Roger Mason, Jr. (New Orleans Hornets), Jason Kidd (New York Knicks), Serge Ibaka (Oklahoma City Thunder),Manu Ginobili (San Antonio Spurs), and Emeka Okafor (Washington Wizards).

I like the idea of the award (especially if you guys have read upon Jack Twyman and Maurice Stokes), but bringing it out now, out of the blue, is a terrible idea. Could have just saved it for next season. This is basically another version of the citizenship award, don't see why it's so big that it needs to be done during the NBA Finals.

Probably because Shane Battier is going to win it.
Yeah, but I mean why couldn't they have done this in earlier rounds? Did they just randomly think up this award in the last month or something?
