  Victor Oladipo Named Finalist for Most Improved Player

James is joined by Houston's James Harden and New Orleans' Anthony Davis as the other two finalists.

James had arguably the most complete offensive season of his 15-year career, averaging 27.5 points, 9.1 rebounds and 8.6 assists per game while shooting 54 percent from the field and 37 percent from 3 during a tumultuous season for the Cavs.

The NBA on Wednesday, May 16 announced the finalists for six awards that honor top performers from the 2017-18 regular season: Kia NBA Most Valuable Player, Kia NBA Rookie of the Year, Kia NBA Sixth Man Award, Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year, Kia NBA Most Improved Player and NBA Coach of the Year.

Harden led the National Basketball Association in scoring at 30.4 points per game, while guiding the Rockets to a franchise-best 65 wins. Davis averaged 28.1 points, 11.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.6 blocks and 1.5 steals a game.

Meanwhile, LeBron will be back on the floor with his Cavaliers teammates on Saturday for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals at Quicken Loans Arena against the Boston Celtics, who lead the best-of-seven series 2-0.

WWE Raw Likely To Stay On USA Network
NBCUniversal is expected to pay as much as three times the current deal for Raw , which airs on USA Network . This could be a very big deal pretty soon for a new network looking for a boost on Tuesday nights.


Davis pulled off what many thought was a miracle, dragging the Pelicans to the No. 6 seed in the playoffs despite a season-ending injury to running-mate DeMarcus Cousins.

Davis was also a finalist for Defensive Player of the Year, along with Gobert and Philadelphia center Joel Embiid.

All season we've heard about the NBA Rookie of the Year being a two-man race between Simmons and Utah Jazz sparkplug Donovan Mitchell, and while Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum has also been named a finalist for the award, a two-man race it effectively remains.

The finalists in all categories were determined by voting by a global panel of sportswriters and broadcasters.
