Time for a proper NBA awards night

From where I sit it looks like the NBA should doing their awards differently...

A richly deserved MVP for Kevin Durant. And a beautiful speech. Too bad it was all done in Edmond, OK. I'm sure it's a great city, according to the Wikipedia entry it was number 1 on CNBC's 'Top 10 Perfect Suburbs' in 2011. Sounds lovely. Still not the best place to crown the league MVP. The NHL has been doing it for years, the NFL is now on board. The NBA should be doing these awards in a special presentation at the end of the season. The NHL heads to Vegas, the NFL is holding it in the Super Bowl city the night before the big game. Imagine a powerful speech in prime time TV from New York or LA, not from the winner's practice facility. Durant's emotion was palpable. Too bad most of us only saw it on SportsCentre.

At least that's how I see it, and I sit in the cheap seats.
