The PBWA is not the Pro Bowlers of Wyoming Association, as I first thought. PBWA stands for Professional Basketball Writers Association.

And no, I'm clearly not a member.

Nonetheless, Steve Nash won the Magic Johnson award for combining "excellence on the court with cooperation with the media and fans." The award, along with all that we know about Steve as highlighted in Jim C's piece today, accompanies 2007's J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award for "outstanding service and dedication to the community." Nash also has a star on the Canadian Walk of Fame.

While this award may seem as no big deal to many of us, keep in mind Nash beat out (among others), Manu Ginoboli of the San Antonio Spurs. Last year's winner of the award was Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant.

It is the small victories, my friends....
