  • Houston Rockets guard James Harden beat out Le Bron James for 2017-18 NBA MVP

Harden becomes the third Rocket ever to win the award, joining Moses Malone (1978-79 and 1981-82) and Hakeem Olajuwon (1993-94).

Gobert was also the top vote-getter for the NBA All-Defensive First Team after averaging 13.5 points, 10.7 rebounds and 2.3 swats per game.

Robertson said he was happy to see LeBron James and other National Basketball Association stars take a stance on societal issues and called on white athletes to follow in their footsteps, according to ESPN.

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. "I think it's a good time for people that look like me to be here for people that are fighting for equality", Long said last season. Gordon won the award last season. Casey beat out Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens and Jazz coach Quin Snyder for the honor.

He was sacked by the Raptors in May following their second consecutive second-round loss to the Cavs.
