Westbrook set to learn if his historic season was an MVP one

For the Most Improved Player award, nominees are Giannis Antetokounmpo of Milwaukee Bucks, Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets, and Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz, who is also contending for the Defensive Player of the Year award against Leonard of the Spurs, and Draymond Green of the Warriors. Another featured award is Coach of the Year. 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.

Westbrook's toughest competition for the NBA MVP award comes from Adidas ambassador James Harden, who hit the court in his first signature shoe, the Adidas Harden Vol. 1. There will be some fan awards as well like Dunk of the Year, Best Style, Block of the Year, Game Winner of the Year and Top Performer of the Year which fans voted for through hashtags on Twitter. This show will be an exciting one for Rockets fans, as the team has multiple candidates to win some of the awards. You can watch the inaugural NBA Awards show 2017 on Monday, June 26, 2017, at 9:00 p.m. EST on TNT. And sure, it might be anti-climactic to find out who was the league's regular season MVP two weeks after the end of the NBA Finals, but at least there is real drama surrounding the Association's most prestigious individual accolade. The available live streams can be found on TNT Overtime and FuboTV. Outside of LeBron, I think one could make the case that the Greek Freak is the best player in the Eastern Conference. He's the only player to score 2,000 points and assist on 2,000 points in National Basketball Association history.

Yes, Embiid only played 31 games this season, and Malcolm Brogdon probably is more deserving.

Gordon gets the nod over teammate Lou Williams after finishing second on the Rockets in scoring at 16.2 points per game. The NBA will also reveal the winners of its defensive player of the year, rookie of the year, sixth man of the year, coach of the year and most improved player of the year honors.
