Jason Kidd Becomes the First NBA Player to Win Back-to-Back Sportsmanship AwardsDavid Butler II/USA Today Sports

Jason Kidd is such a good sport! No, really, he is. He's such a good sport that the NBA just gave him the Joe Dumars Trophy for the second straight season. It's given out every year to the player who demonstrates the best sportsmanship on the court during the regular season. And, as a result of Kidd winning the award, the NBA is going to make a $10,000 donation to The Jason Kidd Foundation.

Sorry, DeMarcus Cousins. Maybe next year!
