LeBron, Harden, Davis up for MVP

Who do you think should win the NBA Defensive MVP and Rookie of the Year awards?

That's right, after months of whispers, think pieces and lowkey campaigning, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons have been named finalists for a pair of most valuable player awards and could bring home some postseason hardware for the first time in nearly half a decade.

Houston star James Harden cooks up another incredible season, but Cleveland's LeBron James and New Orlean's Anthony Davis look poised to challenge his MVP bid.

Harden was the betting favorite to win the MVP in the final weeks of the season and has been a finalist for MVP in two out of the last three seasons.

Davis was the only player named as a finalist for two different awards.

The votes for the regular-season awards were submitted by the media in April.

The 25-year-old ended the 2017-18 season averaging 28.1 points, 11.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocks while shooting 53.4 percent from the field.

James, who at 33 produced one of the best seasons of his outstanding career, is in the running for a 5th career MVP title.

Embiid finished third in the National Basketball Association in rebounds per game, fifth in blocks per game and ninth in defensive real plus minus. He carried New Orleans after All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins suffered a season-ending Achilles injury and led the team to the second round of the playoffs for the second time in franchise history.

Rookie of the Year: Donovan Mitchell (Utah Jazz), Ben Simmons (Philadelphia 76ers) and Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics).

Anthony Davis is also up for defensive player of the year alongside Jazz bigman Rudy Gobert and 76ers centre Joel Embiid.
