With the NBA season likely finished, Jacob and Christian presented the Lakers with the first-ever Silver Screen & Roll awards, also known as “The Screenies,” on today’s episode of “Can U Dig It?”

Yes, the name was heavily inspired by Michael Scott’s “Dundies.”

Unfortunately, Jacob and Christian didn’t have access to a Chili’s (or any Lakers players, for that matter), so they gave out the awards from the comfort of their homes. The awards for the following categories were presented:

  • Most Improved
  • Biggest Surprise
  • Best Supporting Role
  • Most Valuable
  • Least Valuable
  • Biggest Disappointment
  • Stat Line of the Year

Like all awards shows, Jacob and Christian also paid respect to the players that deserved consideration in each category. For example, while Dwight Howard made a case for both “Most Improved” and “Biggest Surprise,” he could only win the one award. Why? Because the Screenies Board of Directors decided that was going to be the case.

If you want to fill out your own ballot below, we strongly encourage you to do so. Who knows? — next year’s Screenies could include fan voting. Although, if it’s anything like All-Star voting, Alex Caruso is just going to run away with every award. That’s not a problem; just a likely scenario.

You can listen to the full episode below, and to make sure you never miss a show, subscribe to the Silver Screen and Roll podcast feed on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher or Google Podcasts.
