Speaking to reporters after he accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award on Monday in Santa Monica, Robertson spoke at length when asked about how his generation of players were engaged in social activism and if he is proud to see some of today's stars and the National Basketball Association try to better the community.

Houston Rockets guard James Harden is the favorite for the award after finishing second to Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook last season. Handing out the trophies throughout the night is model Damaris Lewis, and DJ Kiss will be the providing the music.

We have a new member of the Defensive Player of the Year club. He led the league in fourth-quarter points and scoring average. He was hired as the new coach of the Detroit Pistons, replacing Stan Van Gundy.

"I want to thank the Clippers organization for giving me an opportunity to be myself", Williams said.


Pacers guard Victor Oladipo is the NBA's Most Improved Player after a stellar first season in IN that ended in a playoff showdown with James and the Cavaliers. Casey coached the East in the All-Star Game for the first time. Casey beat out Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens and Jazz coach Quin Snyder for the honor. Robertson played in a generation when stars like Abdul-Jabbar and Russell fought for social change and were outspoken about civil rights. Per NBA.com, Harden had a total of 753 points, compared to Westbrook's 888. His antitrust case against the National Basketball Association also ushered in free agency for players, which Robertson said was his most important assist.

Backstage, Robertson commended the activism of today's players, although he wondered why more white athletes aren't speaking out. "I wouldn't have it any other way, for real".

Robertson received the Lifetime Achievement Award from presenters Charles Barkley and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at the NBA Awards on Monday night. "This is not a black athlete problem". They got a dream.

The Hustle Award went to Amir Johnson of the 76ers.
