Jason Kidd wins NBA Sportsman of the Year for second consecutive season
Knicks guard Jason Kidd won his second straight NBA Sportsman of the Year award. The NBA’s private public relations twitter feed made the official announcement; other reporters later followed up on the news.
Last year when Kidd won, the process for selection was largely dictated by NBA players: Each team nominated one of its own players for the award, divisional winners are selected, and then players voted.
Kidd, 40, is a league veteran and team leader; his Jason Kidd Foundation is dedicated to improving youth education.
