Although the season has come to a close, the NBA still has plenty of loose ends to tie up. Tonight, awards will be handed out to the league’s best ballers, including MVP, Defensive Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year.
To watch the 2018 NBA Awards — which will take place at the Barker Hangar in Los Angeles — live, tune in to TNT at 9 p.m. ET. The show can also be viewed via TNTdrama.com.
Aside from the basketball stars being honored, the event features big-name entertainers and musicians as presenters and hosts. Acclaimed actor Anthony Anderson will lead the way, and presenters include Jesse Williams, Snoop Dogg, Niecy Nash, Ken Jeong and Adrienne Houghton, among others. Handing out the trophies throughout the night is model Damaris Lewis, and DJ Kiss will be the providing the music.
And for the hoops diehards, the “Inside the NBA” crew — Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal — will also be featured during the show.
The show will put to bed debates of who should win the season’s top honors, such as Ben Simmons versus Donovan Mitchell for Rookie of the Year. And if James Harden should win MVP, it will put a cap on an outstanding season from the Adidas-sponsored guard of the Houston Rockets.
