Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons named finalists for NBA awards
Pelicans All-Star Anthony Davis is a finalist for the MVP award and the Defensive Player of the Year award.
The NBA on Wednesday, May 16 announced the finalists for six awards that honor top performers from the 2017-18 regular season: Kia NBA Most Valuable Player, Kia NBA Rookie of the Year, Kia NBA Sixth Man Award, Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year, Kia NBA Most Improved Player and NBA Coach of the Year.
The votes for the regular-season awards were submitted by the media in April.
With 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists per game, James' numbers are especially impressive when one considers the circumstances the 2016 National Basketball Association champions have gone through this year with the trade of Kyrie Irving, injuries, a general manager change and the absence of head coach Tyronn Lue due to illness.
Harden led the National Basketball Association in scoring at 30.4 points per game, while guiding the Rockets to a franchise-best 65 wins.
James, who at 33 produced one of the best seasons of his outstanding career, is in the running for a 5th career MVP title.
Davis and the Pelicans overcame a season-ending injury to sidekick DeMarcus Cousins to earn the 6th seed in the Western Conference. Embiid trailed Davis in both categories and trailed Gobert in blocks per game and defensive real plus minus, which Gobert was the leader in.
