NBA honors to be presented during league's first awards show

Because of changes in the NBA's new collective bargaining agreement, Westbrook will be eligible for a Designated Player Extension - a five-year "supermax" deal worth more than $200 million that will make him the highest-paid player in league history. Many have criticized D'Antoni over the years, but the success that he had with the Rockets in elevating them in the Western Conference should earn him Coach of the Year honors. Gordon was a major piece on the Rockets team that kept Houston afloat when its star James Harden was struggling.

The finalists for this year's MVP are the Houston Rockets' James Harden, the San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard, and the Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook.

That debate will take center stage at the NBA Awards show in NY.

The NBA is also adding fan favorite awards such as Best Style and Dunk of the Year. Harden ($139.99-$159.99 at Foot Locker), the superstar guard for the Houston Rockets, averaged 29.1 points, 11.2 assists and 8.1 rebounds per game. Live televised coverage of the awards show will be presented through TNT network for viewers in the United States.

Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs in the Air Jordan XXXI. Dario Saric ended up leading the Sixers to a better record while Malcolm Brogdon was critical for the Bucks' success this season.

Green held his opponents to the lowest field-goal percentage of the other two nominees of Kawhi Leonard and Rudy Gobert. Westbrook averaged 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game. After the end of the regular season, the Golden State Warriors went on a historic 16-1 postseason run to capture the National Basketball Association championship.

In the Sixth Man Award category it will be Eric Gordon of the Rockets, and teammate Lou Williams, with Andre Iguodala of the Warriors. How numerous six major award winners (MVP, Rookie of the Year, Coach, Sixth Man, Defensive Player of the Year and Most Improved) from the last five seasons can you name in five minutes?
