The players on the Midseason Top 25 list are considered strong candidates for the 2018 John R. Wooden Award. Previous winners include Larry Bird (1979), Michael Jordan (1984) and Tim Duncan (1997).

Hosmer has also been known as a great clubhouse player as well, which why the potential move to re-sign him is so intriguing. In a rather cold offseason hot stove, Hosmer's deal would be the highest contract given to a free agent this season.
