LeBron, Harden, and Davis finalists for MVP

The NBA revealed the finalists for some of its major awards on Wednesday (May 16) and New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis was nominated to win MVP and Defensive Player of the Year.

Houston's James Harden, Cleveland's LeBron James and Anthony Davis of New Orleans are the finalists for the NBA's Most Valuable Player award.

Harden led the National Basketball Association in scoring at 30.4 points per game, while guiding the Rockets to a franchise-best 65 wins.

The finalists were based on voting results from a global panel of sportswriters and broadcasters.

The votes for the regular-season awards were submitted by the media in April.

Davis was the only player named as a finalist for two different awards.

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers' Ben Simmons and Utah Jazz's Donovan Mitchell are finalists for the NBA Rookie of the Year award.
