Westbrook Among Top NBA MVP Candidates

27 June 2017

The heated debate on which player will win the 2017 NBA MVP is going to end Monday.

Not sure if you're aware of it, and if you're not I can't say I'm too surprised, but the National Basketball Association is doing its first awards TV show tonight from NY, where it hands out all its regular season hardware - at least all but the all-NBA teams that were announced a few weeks ago. Oklahoma Citys Russell Westbrook, Houstons James Harden and San Antonios Kawhi Leonard are the finalists for MVP of the 2016-17 season. Harden and the Rockets' record for the season was 55-27, coming in third in the Western Conference.

Hosted by hip-hop superstar Drake, the "NBA Awards Show" will fete players for their standout individual performances with awards including the Kia NBA Sixth Man for the best sub, Kia NBA Most Improved Player, Kia Defensive Player of the Year, Kia NBA Rookie of the Year (ROY), and the most coveted Most Valuable Player (MVP) award for the player with the best overall performance in the 2016-2017 regular season.

Dario Saric ended up leading the Sixers to a better record while Malcolm Brogdon was critical for the Bucks' success this season. Westbrook will join Houston's James Harden and San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard as finalists for the league's MVP award.

Joel Embiid was the favorite to win Rookie of the Year early in the season but he only managed to play in 31 games due to injury.

In the Sixth Man Award category it will be Eric Gordon of the Rockets, and teammate Lou Williams, with Andre Iguodala of the Warriors.

D'Antoni deserves tons of credit for unlocking Harden's next-level ability as a playmaker. And since all we can do is give our two cents, here are our predictions for who we think will win each award. He is one of the league's best point guards. 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?

Will it be Westbrook or Harden or maybe even Leonard that win NBA MVP? The All-NBA Team was announced during the 2017 NBA Playoffs.
