James Harden is named 2017-2018 NBA MVP

Needless to say, it is interesting to see that Harden won MVP by a rather comfortable margin. Obviously, I knew the importance and the opportunity the Rockets have given me for these last six or seven years. Harden was the driving force behind the historical season for the Rockets. He averaged 16.3 points, 9.4 boards, 7.7 assists and 1.7 steals in the playoffs.

When Lou Williams came to Los Angeles last summer, feelings were mixed. Unfortunately for him, his incredible playoff run didn't factor into the voting (since MVP is a regular-season award).

Dwane Casey was crowned Coach of the Year after guiding the Toronto Raptors to first place in the Eastern Conference. His inexplicable disappearance in the National Basketball Association finals - he managed only 12.4 points per game despite being the team's third best player - was cited as a reason that the Thunder fell to the Miami Heat in just five games.

"Can't look in the rear view mirror", Casey said backstage. The first honor for the Rockets from the award show actually went to general manager Daryl Morey, who was named NBA Executive of the Year. "Winston Churchill said success is measured by failure, failure, and then come back with enthusiasm, and that's what I've done".

The clutch shot on February 7 gave the Cavaliers a two-point win in overtime against Minnesota and signaled a change in attitude for James heading into the second half of the regular season. Casey also coached the Eastern Conference in this year's All-Star Game.

Oscar Robertson was presented with the NBA's 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award.

After Barkley mentioned last year's recipient Bill Russell, Boston's Hall of Fame center flipped his middle finger in Barkley's direction.

Robertson is the career leader in triple-doubles and was the first player to average one for a season.

Backstage, Robertson commended the activism of today's players, although he wondered why more white athletes aren't speaking out. "This is not a black athlete problem".

Robertson went on to say he hopes "the whites and the blacks get together, even with the football", a reference to NFL players who have taken a knee or sat in silence during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality.

So when NBA commissioner Adam Silver opened up the envelope and told the world what pundits, fans, and the majority of NBA Twitter had predicted months ago, it was time for The Beard to give a speech from the heart, without anything written down.
