What If the Top 5 MVP and 6th Man of the Year Finalists Played on the Same Team…

The NBA regular season has been over for some time and we got our official award announcements. This had me thinking. What if the top 5 vote-getters for MVP and 6th man of The Year were all on the same team. For this simulation, I did just that.

This team was automatically placed in the Eastern Conference.
