Kyle Korver has had an All-Star season for the Atlanta Hawks in 2015 and was named as the recipient of the NBA's Sportsmanship Award on Wednesday.

Korver is viewed as an excellent teammate and is one of the most active players in the league off the court participating in various charity efforts. He is the first Atlanta Hawks player to ever receive the NBA Sportsmanship Award.

Korver is also one of the most feared three-point shooters in the league and has been a big part to Atlanta's success this season. Korver led the league in three-point percentage for the second straight season finishing at 49 percent.
