Draymond Green and Warriors shut out of National Basketball Association awards

Draymond Green and Warriors shut out of National Basketball Association awards

The standout award is, of course, the MVP honor and the trio of James, Harden and Davis has separated themselves from the rest of the pack with their performances in the regular season.

LeBron James, James Harden and Anthony Davis are on the shortlist for winning the MVP award as the National Basketball Association announced Wednesday the finalists for a number of awards to be handed out following the end of the postseason.

Simmons finished the 2017-18 season averaging 15.8 points, 8.1 assists, and 8.2 rebounds per game.

Mariners' star Robinson Cano suspended 80 games for violating joint drug agreement
Cano, a Dominican native, starred with the Yankees at second base from 2005 to 2013, winning the World Series in 2009. The suspension comes on the heels of Cano suffering the first significant injury of his tenure in Seattle .

Harden led the National Basketball Association in scoring at 30.4 points per game, while guiding the Rockets to a franchise-best 65 wins.

Though it will surely be a close race, this is an award that Simons can, and honestly should win, and if he does pull it out, it will make him the first Philadelphia 76ers to bring home the award since Michael Carter-Williams accomplished the feat back in 2014. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the all-time leader with 6.

Davis pulled off what many thought was a miracle, dragging the Pelicans to the No. 6 seed in the playoffs despite a season-ending injury to running-mate DeMarcus Cousins.

It will be launched later this year at a price of $999 (although those paying with Sirin's own cryptocurrency get a 10% discount). The blockchain is taking baby steps towards gaining mass acceptance and this seems to have caught with the fancy of phone makers.

Ben Simmons has been shortlisted for the NBA's Rookie of the Year award, along with Utah's Donovan Mitchell and Boston sensation Jayson Tatum.

Sixers Joel Embiid has been named a finalist for Defensive Player of the year.

The finalists in all categories were determined by voting by a global panel of sportswriters and broadcasters. Toronto Raptors guard Fred VanVleet is the other finalist.
