Philadelphia 76ers' player Tyrese Maxey clinched the 2023-24 NBA Sportsmanship Award, bagging the prestigious Joe Dumars Trophy.

This accolade is bestowed upon the player who best embodies sportsmanship values on the court. Maxey's win marks the first time he's claimed the honor, joining Eric Snow as the second Sixer to do so, following Snow's win in 1999-00. 

Instituted since the 1995-96 season, the NBA Sportsmanship Award pays homage to players who exemplify fair play and respect in the game.

Named after NBA legend Joe Dumars, a two-time champion with the Detroit Pistons, this award underscores the spirit of sportsmanship. 

The selection process involves each NBA team nominating one player, with a panel of league executives then shortlisting six finalists, one from each division. The ultimate winner is chosen by current NBA players. 

Maxey, a seasoned NBA player with four years under his belt, adds the NBA Sportsmanship Award to his list of accolades, having recently secured the Kia NBA Most Improved Player Award and earned his maiden NBA All-Star selection for his stellar performance in the 2023-24 regular season.
