The NBA announced their annual awards Monday night and there were a few surprises. The awards were announced during a live show on TNT. The most prestigious award, League MVP was given to Rockets guard James Harden. Which came as no surprise as he was dominant all year and led the Rockets to the Western Conference Finals. Ben Simmons ended up taking home the Rookie of the Year award which came as a surprise to many, including me. I thought Donavon Mitchell of the Utah Jazz was much more deserving of the award. But as a fan of the NBA, the rivalry between the two was special and very good for the sport. The most surprising moment of the night came when the Coach of the Year award was given to Raptors coach Dwayne Casey, who was fired about a month ago. If anything it just goes to show that nobody’s job is safe in professional sports.
