From last season’s winner Shea Ili through to the likes of Mitch McCarron, Cam Gliddon, Nick Kay and Todd Blanchfield, we all know there will be some clear favourites for the TAB MVP.
However, this season’s talent pool is deep, real deep. Rob Loe, Rueben Te Rangi, Emmett Naar, Jordair Jett, Craig Moller, Tim Quarterman, Nnanna Egwu, Daniel Kickert, Jarrad Weeks, Jarrod Kenny, Kuran Iverson, Wally Ellenson, Daniel Gomis, Chris Early, Alex Pledger …. it’s a long list!
In an entertaining twist, which will be a first for the Sal’s NBL, each week the two coaches from every game will cast votes and those votes will be published publicly. By the end of the regular season we will arrive at the top 10 vote-getters and then the final selection will take place.
Who will win? Will there be a standout? Or will the race go down to the wire.
It will be fast, it will be entertaining and it will be fun. Strap yourself in.
