The All-NBA Teams Have Been Announced

"I look at LeBron like Shaq; I think every year he's the MVP, and you can give him the award every year if you wanted to".

Boston: LeBron James lit up Boston's TD Garden with a stellar display as the Cleveland Cavaliers crushed the Celtics 130-86 to race to a 2-0 lead in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals.

The NBA on Friday night released the three finalists for this year's MVP award that featured Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook, Houston Rockets point guard James Harden, and San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, according to ESPN.

But while James downplayed the snub, his teammates were quick to offer explanations for why one of the all-time National Basketball Association greats, after one of his greatest seasons (career highs in rebounds, assists and 3-point percentage) is not an MVP finalist. Westbrook averaged a league-best 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds (10th in the NBA), and 10.4 assists (third in the NBA).

Isaiah Thomas Is Out For The Season
Brown isn't likely to get to the type of scoring averages that Thomas put up but he gives them their best chance for success. And James and the rest of the Cleveland starters were pulled from the game with 1:47 remaining in the third quarter.

The finalists for the 2017 NBA Most Valuable Player Award were revealed Friday, but there was one glaring omission on the list.

Among the three finalists nominated for the award is Westbrook, who is believed to be the heavy favorite to win it for the first time in his career.

James, a four-time victor, was considered by many a dark-horse candidate to win this year but will have to console himself by continuing to barrel through the Eastern Conference playoffs.

James Harden has capped off a stellar season for the Houston Rockets by being unanimously voted to the 2016-17 All-NBA First Team. Iguodala posted his highest player efficiency rating (14.4) in four seasons in Golden Stat, while averaging 7.6 points.

The last four words of his statement are not telling, but do prompt thought about how many more years Wall will be doing this work in Washington. "There are a lot of great players in this league, so it's definitely something".
