Westbrook set to learn if his historic season was an MVP one

The NBA Awards will air at 9 p.m. ET on TNT.

D'Antoni deserves tons of credit for unlocking Harden's next-level ability as a playmaker. Oklahoma Citys Russell Westbrook, Houstons James Harden and San Antonios Kawhi Leonard are the finalists for MVP of the 2016-17 season. The NBA will announce the victor of the MVP and the other individual honors during the first NBA Awards show in NY. Here's the latest on the NBA Awards 2017 show including time, TV channel, and live streaming options. "The Process" averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.5 blocks, and 2.1 assists per game last season.

Just what the country needs, another awards show. Harden averaged 29.1 points, 11.2 assists, 8.1 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game this season. Live televised coverage of the awards show will be presented through TNT network for viewers in the United States.

The heated debate on which player will win the 2017 NBA MVP is going to end Monday.

Meanwhile, up for Coach of the Year award are Mike D'Antoni of the Houston Rockets, Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs, and Erik Spoelstra of the Miami Heat.

Last season was the first year Gordon played more than 70 games since he was a rookie in 2009.

Thunder star Russell Westbrook is the heavy favorite to take home the MVP award after averaging a triple-double during the regular season while also leading OKC to the playoffs in its first year post-KD.

In the Sixth Man Award category it will be Eric Gordon of the Rockets, and teammate Lou Williams, with Andre Iguodala of the Warriors.

Hosted by hip-hop superstar Drake, the "NBA Awards Show" will fete players for their standout individual performances with awards including the Kia NBA Sixth Man for the best sub, Kia NBA Most Improved Player, Kia Defensive Player of the Year, Kia NBA Rookie of the Year (ROY), and the most coveted Most Valuable Player (MVP) award for the player with the best overall performance in the 2016-2017 regular season.
