2019-2020 All Canadian NBA Awards

With the 2019-2020 Season and bubble coming to a close we thought it would be a fun idea to award our All Canadian NBA Awards for the season, some might be pretty obvious while others might have you think twice.

MVP: Jamal Murray

It shouldn’t be a surprise after the performance Jamal just put on in the playoffs that he wouldn’t come away with this title.
