2015-16 NBA Award Picks: Steph Curry not the only unanimous winner

More NBA: Berger award votes | MVP Runner-up Rankings

The 2015-2016 season is a wrap and as the playoffs come into focus, it's time to look at our picks for the regular-season awards. It should come as no surprise that Steph Curry is our unanimous vote for MVP and that Karl-Anthony Towns is our unanimous Rookie of the Year. After that things get interesting, however, with some debate amid our panel.

Of note, Draymond Green received two votes for All-NBA first-team center, despite playing just 20 percent of his minutes at that position by some estimates. However, Green was not only a vital member of a 72-win (and counting) team, but the Warriors' most devastating lineups were with Green at center. That they did not need to use that lineup consistently should not detract from his play at that position, goes the thinking.

It's Steph Curry and the Warriors' year, but don't overlook the other winners on this list and our picks for All-NBA, who all had phenomenal seasons. Here are our picks for the NBA regular season awards.
