The three finalists for MVP are Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook, Houston Rockets shooting guard James Harden and San Antonio Spurs small forward Kawhi Leonard.

After a couple of bad stops with the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers, Coach D'Antoni made the most out of the talent he had on his Rockets team last season.

Don't miss the glitzy awards show to be staged at the Basketball City, Pier 36 in New York City to be attended by NBA's biggest stars both from the past and the present. Dario Saric ended up leading the Sixers to a better record while Malcolm Brogdon was critical for the Bucks' success this season.

Before this season, the NBA's awards were given at various times throughout the postseason. It will be shown live on the TNT Network and via live stream at WatchTNT and NBA.com.

Unfortunately, we don't have an NBA MVP vote, and Westbrook is the safe bet to take home the award after his season for the record books.

Xbox One X won't turn a profit for Microsoft

Two Rockets are candidates for the Sixth Man of the Year. Both Gordon and Williams have the stats to be named winners while Andre Iguodala did everything for the Warriors off the bench.

Defensive Player of the Year: Draymond Green.

In fact, I'm wondering how numerous "finalists" might just take a pass on the whole thing, preferring to do whatever it is they're doing to relax instead of sitting in the audience waiting for their name not to be called and faking enthusiasm for the winners. His competition this year is a Draymond Green to Steph Curry to Kevin Durant alley-oop, which sounds A LOT better than it actually is.

Then there's Harden. The Houston Rockets floor general scored just 202 fewer points than Westbrook this season on 408 fewer shot attempts. In 2016, Gobert only played 60 games and averaged under 10 points per contest.This season, he improved his average in points, rebounds, and blocks while only missing one regular season game and being an essential part of the Utah Jazz team that returned to the playoffs. D'Antoni made Harden into an MVP again but people can not discount Gregg Popovich, who is the best head coach in the National Basketball Association today and probably in history.

Other awards include Executive of the Year, Twyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year, Sportsmanship Award, and the NBA Cares Community Assist Award. The All-NBA Team was announced during the 2017 NBA Playoffs.
