Davis was the only player named as a finalist for two different awards.
Houston's James Harden, Cleveland's LeBron James and Anthony Davis of New Orleans are the finalists for the NBA'sMost Valuable Player award.
The 28-year-old majorly contributed to the Houston side's dominance this year with an average of 30.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game as he looks to win the award for the first time in his career.
With 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists per game, James' numbers are especially impressive when one considers the circumstances the 2016 National Basketball Association champions have gone through this year with the trade of Kyrie Irving, injuries, a general manager change and the absence of head coach Tyronn Lue due to illness.
