Who will be crowned Coach of the Year of the 2016-17 NBA season? Rookie of the Year? Defensive Player of the Year? And of course, the big question, who will become this season’s MVP?
Those questions, and more, will be answered in the first-ever NBA Awards, airing live from Basketball City in New York, on ABS-CBN Sports+Action on Tuesday, June 27, at 9am.
In addition to the aforementioned prizes, the ceremony will also see the winners of the Sixth Man Award, Basketball Executive of the Year, Sportsmanship Award, Teammate of the Year, the NBA All-Rookie Team, the NBA All-Defensive Team, the season-long NBA Cares Community Assist Award, and the previously-announced All-NBA teams.
Also in the mix are the winners of six categories, which were determined through fan voting: Dunk of the Year, Best Style, Block of the Year, Assist of the Year, Game Winner of the Year, and Top Performance of the Year.
Hosted by rap star Drake, the league will also be giving the inaugural Craig Sager Strong Award to assistant coach Monty Williams, and a Lifetime Achievement Award to the iconic Bill Russell.
