NBA Awards: LeBron James, Anthony Davis, James Harden Among Finalists

Harden is the frontrunner for the award as he has been the Houston Rockets' best player as they finished not only as the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference over the Golden State Warriors but as the best team in the regular season overall with an impressive 65-17 record.

Embiid finished third in the National Basketball Association in rebounds per game, fifth in blocks per game and ninth in defensive real plus minus.

Even though Embiid probably won't win the award, as Gobert's defensive ranking is far and away the best mark in the entire league, it's nice to see the big man get some much-needed appreciation for his hard work.

He averaged 27.5 points - the most for him since the 2009-10 season - along with 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists and played in all 82 games of the regular season.

Houston star James Harden cooks up another incredible season, but Cleveland's LeBron James and New Orlean's Anthony Davis look poised to challenge his MVP bid.

Simmons, Utah shooting guard Donovan Mitchell and Boston small forward Jayson Tatum are the rookie-of-the-year finalists.

The NBA's MVP race is down to just three players and the Pelicans Anthony Davis is in that number. The Brow was an absolute monster on both ends of the court, evidenced by the fact that he also finished in the top three of the Defensive Player of the Year voting.

The NBA Awards will be announced live on TNT on June 25, 2018.
