It was a busy night in the NBA world, as the league hosted its first ever live awards show. Both Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIP) and Malcolm Brogdon (ROY) won their respective nominations and Bucks fans couldn’t have been more excited.

Brogdon beat out both Philadelphia candidates Joel Embiid and Dario Saric for the award. Some Philly fans were not too happy..
if you really think brogdon deserved ROY unfollow me, delete your twitter and never watch the nba again.

Dario and Joel got robbed! Malcolm Brogdon doesn't deserve rookie of the year!#NBAAwards

This fan wanted MORE awards for Wisconsin athletes.
Happy for Brogdon & Giannis but it's ridiculous that Rodgers wasn't voted the best player in the NFL. Smh
