Oscar Robertson Trophy™ (NBA)

The Oscar Robertson™ is awarded to the NBA Western Conference Champion annually. Renamed in 2022 in honor of Robertson, the trophy recognizes his stellar NBA career and history of pioneering progress for players on and off the court.

Robertson was the first player to average a triple double for an entire season, won Milwaukee Bucks' first NBA title in 1971, and was, not only the first African-American president of the NBA Players Association, but of any national sports or entertainment labor union. As an NBA MVP, 12-time NBA All-Star and three-time NBA All-Star MVP, 11-time All-NBA Team member, and NBA Rookie of the Year, Robertson is known as one of the best all-around players in the history of the league. He is also part of the NBA's 35th, 50th, and 75th Anniversary Teams. 

Part of the new unveiling was a redesign of the trophy.The 15.6-inch trophy is designed by Victor Solomon and Tiffany & Co. and features two raised rings supporting a basketball made of sterling silver. As explained in the 2022 NBA press release, the parts of the basketball represent four key milestones achieved by a Western Conference team toward the NBA Finals: Playoffs, First Rund, Conference Semifinals, and Conference Finals.
