To watch the 2018 NBA Awards - which will take place at the Barker Hangar in Los Angeles - live, tune in to TNT at 9 p.m. ET. Houston general manager Daryl Morey was also named Executive of the Year. Would LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers, James Harden of the Houston Rockets or Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans take home the league's top individual honor? He was the league's leading scorer at 30.4 points per game and he was third in the league in assists, dishing out 8.8 helpers per contest.

When the time comes to make a serious pitch to George, James or any other marquee free agent, Harden likely won't hesitate to do whatever he can to help improve the Rockets roster.

The Duke of Sussex, 33, visited local children at the Phelisanong Children's Centre in Pitseng for the event on Saturday. This was funded by the charity and is set to provide a space for kids to eat together and have indoor space to play'.

The Rockets star became the third player in team history to receive the award. Capela averaged a double-double with 13.9 points a game and 10.8 rebounds a game. Gobert, who turns 26 on Tuesday, missed 26 games during the regular season with multiple injuries, but still anchored a Jazz defense that posted the second-best defensive rating (101.6) in the National Basketball Association last season. He scored at least 20 points in three of those games.

Rockets fans have to love how Harden ended his speech. Dwane Casey was chosen Coach of the Year for his work with the Toronto Raptors, who fired him last month. Casey also coached the Eastern Conference in this year's All-Star Game. Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams bested Gordon, and Capela was edged by Pacers all-star Victor Oladipo. Casey beat out Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens and Jazz coach Quin Snyder for the honor. Harden became the first player in National Basketball Association history to have a 60-point triple-double. Former NBA player Dikembe Mutombo received the Sager Strong Award, named for the late Turner Sports broadcaster.
