LNB Pro A awards and honours
Individual awards

The LNB Pro A MVP is the MVP award of the top-tier level men's professional club basketball league in France, the LNB Pro A. Maxi-Basket holds the vote, and calls it the referendum.

Player of the Year awards (before 1983)

Alain Gilles was a 3 time Player of the Year (1965, 1967, 1968).

Before 1983, the title of the best player in the league was sometimes assigned by a panel of journalists, but the charts are incomplete.

  • Jean Degros (Denain) was voted the best player of the year in the 1962–63 season.
  • Alain Gilles (ASVEL) was voted the best player of the year in the 1964–65, 1966–67, and 1967–68 seasons.
  • Michel Le Ray (ABC Nantes) was voted the best player of the year in the 1965–66 season.
  • Pierre Galle (AS Berck) was voted the best player of the year in the 1972–73 and 1973–74 seasons.

Two awards (1983–2014)

Between 1983 and 2005, the monthly Maxi-Basket conducted a vote of the players and head coaches of the league. Since 2005, the coaches and captains of the LNB Pro A clubs, and a panel of fifty journalists are asked to vote.[1]

Since the 2014–15 LNB Pro A season, the MVP award is a single unified award. Prior to that, it was divided into two separate awards, one for French players, and one for non-French players.
