The first-ever NBA Awards Show is kicking off tonight at 9:00 P.M. Hosted by Drake, tonight’s festivities will put to bed the season-long argument over MVP, Rookie of the Year and all the other top individual competitions. Going forward, the NBA Awards will serve as the format for regular-season awards as opposed to announcing them throughout the playoffs.
On top of that, fans will have the opportunity to vote for a lot of cool awards such as best dunk, best pass and best playoff moment.
It’s like the Oscars, except for basketball. Pretty cool, right?
Here are the headlining awards and nominees that will be decided tonight:
MVP: James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Kawhi Leonard
Rookie of the Year: Malcolm Brogdon, Joel Embiid, Dario Saric
Sixth Man of the Year: Eric Gordon, Andre Iguodala, Lou Williams
Most Improved Player: Giannis Antetokuounmpo, Rudy Gobert, Nikola Jokic
Defensive Player of the Year: Rudy Gobert, Draymond Green, Kawhi Leonard
You’re welcome in advance for all of these ways to live stream the first-ever NBA Awards.
