The PVA’s are the only awards voted on exclusively by the players of the NBA, deciding from a list of awards from the MVP and Most Respected Awards to the Freshest, Best Side Hustle, and People’s Champ Awards, and more. Awarded players include LeBron James, Kevin Durant, PJ Tucker, Rudy Gobert, Gordon Hayward and more.

To bring the Players’ Voice Awards to life, the NBPA called on Compound, a creative agency founded by Set Free Richardson, who selected 11 individual artists to curate notable award artwork.
