LNB Pro A awards and honours
Individual awards

The LNB Pro A Awards are the individual awards 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. The distinction of the Coach of the Year is awarded by the Coaches' Basketball Union.

Player of the Year awards (before 1983)[edit]

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.

Awards (since 1983)[edit]

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.

L'Équipe awards (1994–2005)[edit]
