The NBA will be announcing the MVP and other awards winners during their inaugural award show Monday night. Reigning two-time MVP Stephen Curry set the then-single regular season record for most 3-pointers made in a year.

Fans who want to watch the 2017 NBA Awards Show can catch it live on television or online.

Kawhi Leonard is the best two-way player in the NBA, Rudy Gobert led the league in blocks while Draymond Green led the league in steals, per ESPN. Westbrook beat out fellow finalists James Harden and Kawhi Leonard for the honor. Westbrook also joins Robertson as the only two players to have averaged triple doubles for an entire season. He also averaged 29.1 points and 8.1 rebounds, having by far the most wonderful season of his career.

In other words, Harden put up comparable numbers to Westbrook in much more efficient fashion, all while leading the Rockets to the third-best record in the Western Conference with 55 wins - eight more than Westbrook's No. 6-seed Thunder.

In his opening monologue, Drake showed off his burgeoning standup comedy skills, remarking that the NBA Awards are taking place the day after the BET Awards.

'DWTS' Host Erin Andrews Marries Hockey Player Jarret Stoll
Several days before saying "I do", Andrews shared a photo of a sunset in Montana on Instagram with the simple caption, "Stop". Stoll played in the National Hockey League for 13 years, for Edmonton, Los Angeles, Minnesota and the New York Rangers.


See above. Harden and Leonard make compelling cases, but this thing's going to Westbrook.

With 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game, Russell Westbrook joined Oscar Robertson as the only players to average triple-double in a single National Basketball Association season. For ROY, nominees are Malcolm Brogdon of the Milwaukee Bucks, and teammates Joel Embiid and Dario Saric of the Philadelphia 76ers. Eric Gordon and Lou Williams are two of the three finalists, with Gordon the likely to win it.

D'Antoni deserves tons of credit for unlocking Harden's next-level ability as a playmaker.

Coach of the Year: Mike D'Antoni. 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?
