How to Watch Tonight’s 2018 NBA Awards

Associated Press

The Thunder had all three players back in 2012, before they were even 25 years old, before sending Harden to the Rockets in a trade before the following season.

Harden's impact was undeniable, but there weren't many players that affected the game on both ends of the floor the way Davis did for the New Orleans Pelicans.

The other winners were Philadelphia's Ben Simmons (Rookie of the Year), Indiana's Victor Oladipo (Most Improved Player), Utah's Rudy Gobert (Defensive Player of the Year), Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams (Sixth Man of the Year) and former Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey (Coach of the Year).

Harden averaged 30.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 8.8 assists and led the Rockets to a franchise-record 65 victories. Harden is the third player in Rockets history to win the award, and he is the first since Hakeem Olajuwon won in 1994. However, Harden and the Rockets would also fall to eventual champion Golden State in a grueling 7-game series in the Western Conference Finals.

The Frenchman averaged 13.5 points, 10.7 rebounds and 2.3 blocks in 56 games to earn his second straight NBA All-Defensive first-team selection.

There was, nevertheless, plenty for Serbia to be pleased about, with Mitrovic particularly impressive in the air. Albania's national flag was at the center of Switzerland's 2-1 victory over Serbia on Friday at the World Cup .

"I think that as people evolve, and things are changing so much in the world with social media and whatnot, these people are young people who have families", Robertson said. He was hired as the new coach of the Detroit Pistons, replacing Stan Van Gundy.

Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey was named the NBA's Executive of the Year. Casey also coached the Eastern Conference in this year's All-Star Game.

Oscar Robertson was presented with the NBA's 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award. Harden will look to defend the award next season.

The 6-foot-5 guard also posted the first 60-point triple-double performance in National Basketball Association history - 60 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds against the Orlando Magic.
