Considered by many to be one of the most prestigious honors that can be bestowed upon an individual, the Ace of Spades award is given following every Sixers win to the player(s) whose play was most pivotal in lifting the team to victory. The honor specifically recognizes savvy defense, outstanding rebounding, excellent hustle, energy off the bench, strong leadership, clutch performance, abundant swagger, and other intangibles that may not show up on the stat sheet, but are central to the success of the team.

This season, over a dozen players will vie for the paramount honor, the Ultimate Ace, presented at the end of the season to the player who has acquired the most individual Ace of Spades awards.

Let the race begin!
