Sixers’ Tyrese Maxey wins 2023-24 Sportsmanship Award

sixers’ tyrese maxey wins 2023-24 sportsmanship award

Philadelphia 76ers guard Tyrese Maxey.

After being named the league’s Most Improved Player last month, Sixers guard Tyrese Maxey has added another 2023-24 award to his trophy case, having been voted the Sportsmanship Award winner for this season as well, the NBA announced in a press release.

The Sportsmanship Award has been presented annually since 1995-96 and “honors a player who best represents the ideals of sportsmanship on the court.”

According to the NBA, each team nominated one of its players. A panel of league executives then trimmed the 30-player list to six — one player from each division — and current players voted on the six finalists.

As the full voting results show, Maxey received the most first-place votes and total points, making him the winner. Heat big man Kevin Love was the runner-up, followed by (in order) Cavaliers center Jarrett Allen, Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Kings forward Harrison Barnes and Spurs point guard Tre Jones.

The 21st overall pick of the 2020 draft, Maxey will be eligible for restricted free agency this offseason. After his excellent performances this season, there’s no doubt that the 23-year-old will return to the 76ers.
