MEDIA-VOTED AWARDS - Kia NBA Most Valuable Player

In the lottery era, he tied Steve Nash for the lowest drafted MVP as he was the 15th overall draft pick.

  • Paul George, Oklahoma City Thunder
  • James Harden, Houston Rockets

Rookie of the Year

WINNER - Luka Dončić, Dallas Mavericks. Dončić is the only player from the Dallas Mavericks to win the rookie of the year award besides Jason Kidd. He is the fifth rookie to average 20 plus points per game, 5 plus rebounds per game, and 5 plus assists to achieve those marks. All of the other 4 rookies to do that also won the rookie of the year award at the end of their first NBA season.
