Knicks guard Jason Kidd won his second straight NBA Sportsman of the Year award. The NBA's private public relations twitter feed made the official announcement; other reporters later followed up on the news.

Last year when Kidd won, the process for selection was largely dictated by NBA players: Each team nominated one of its own players for the award, divisional winners are selected, and then players voted.

Kidd, 40, is a league veteran and team leader; his Jason Kidd Foundation is dedicated to improving youth education.
