James was named the Kia NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Month four times during the year and has now won the award 38 times in his career.

Harden leads the league in scoring with 30.4 per game while also handing out eight assists.

But will the Rockets star finally take home the top league honor?

The league will announce the winners on June 25th.

But to keep our appetites satiated, the National Basketball Association announced the finalists for each award on Wednesday.

James, meanwhile, has put together an MVP-worthy season while leading a team that's changed personnel throughout the season.

Despite the fact he is now 33-years-old, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James is showing no signs of slowing down.

The other two finalists for MVP were Houston's James Harden and Cleveland's LeBron James, while the other finalists for Defensive Player of the Year were Philadelphia's Joel Embiid and Utah's Rudy Gobert.

Davis and the Pelicans overcame a season-ending injury to sidekick DeMarcus Cousins to earn the 6th seed in the Western Conference.

On Wednesday, James was announced as one of three finalists for the 2017-18 Kia NBA Most Valuable Player award, joining Houston's James Harden and New Orleans' Anthony Davis.

The awards will be voted by a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada, while fans will get to vote for several awards as well.

Coach of the Year finalists include Boston's Brad Stevens, Quin Snyder of Utah and Dwane Casey, the Toronto coach who was sacked by the Raptors after they were swept 4-0 by the Cavaliers in the second round of the playoffs.
