End of month update:

Big Man of the Month for January is Hassan Whiteside, who was named BMOtN three times, breaking an eight-way tie for first place, on the last day of the month. An unprecedented eighteen players were named Big Man of the Night at least once in January.

Big Man of the Month, season-to-date:
October: Karl-Anthony Towns
November: Joel Embiid
December: Nikola Jokic
January: Hassan Whiteside



Due to being named Big Man Of the Night twice as an Honorable Mention in January, the following player will receive probationary addition to the nightly Top Tier Big Man listing:

Jonas Valanciunas

The following player has had their probationary period expire, and will no longer be automatically featured as part of the nightly Top Tier Big Man listing:

Honorable Mention:
Zion Williamson: 21/10/1/1/1 versus Rockets
Brook Lopez: 17/4/1/0/9 versus Suns


Lopez does not technically qualify for Honorable Mention, under the completely arbitrary rules for this thread, that I made up. But I'm going to make an exception, because 9 blocks.

It strikes me as hilarious to imagine that Andre Drummond was really feeling himself when he went into the locker room, after the game... Like he was bragging to his teammates, "Man, I know that Mister Slim is going to give me Big Man of the Night!"





Imagine throwing up 31/19/4, and only objectively being the second-best big man of the night!
