Rockets' Harden wins Most Valuable Player Award

James Harden was asked about the possibility of James joining the Rockets.

Harden joined Michael Jordan as the only players to average at least 20 points, eight assists, five rebounds and 1.7 steals in a season.

LeBron James had one of the best clutch shots of the season with a game-winner against the Minnesota Timberwolves in a February game just before the trade deadline.

"The last four years have been like knocking on the door, knocking on the door". Harden finally let his guard down for two seconds.

James didn't attend the show in Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport amid frenzied speculation about his future.

QUESTION: Will James pick up his play option for $36.5 million by the June 29 deadline? "She's my backbone in good times and bad times".

Harden 86 of the 100 first-place votes that were handed out by members of the media.

"Then I interviewed with (Pistons owner) Tom Gores". Throughout the regular season, he proved to be the most dominant scorer in the league and also happened to play on the best team. "Wow", Harden said in his acceptance speech.

The Rockets had another victor in Daryl Morey, who was honored as Executive of the Year.

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.

Simmons helped Philadelphia to a 52-30 record, including ending the season with a 16-game winning streak.

Rudy Gobert took home Defensive Player of the Year after helping the Utah Jazz get a fifth seed in the playoffs.

Lou Williams of the Los Angeles Clippers took Sixth Man honors.

"Honestly because I didn't know", Harden said.

"I'd like to thank my family, to start off with", Simmons said. Right now, it does appear that the Lakers and Cavaliers are the most likely teams to land James for the 2018-19 season and beyond, but things can change in a heartbeat. Casey beat out Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens and Jazz coach Quin Snyder for the honor. The 28-year-old finished second to Russell Westbrook last season. For much of his time in Houston, Harden put up the statistics of a star player while gathering regular criticism for his unconventional play. "I wouldn't have it any other way, for real". You see injustice in the world. Shout out to all the youngins who got a dream, a vision.

Oscar Robertson was presented with the NBA's 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Hustle Award went to Amir Johnson of the 76ers.
