Paul George Rudy Gobert Giannis Antetokounmpo Bucks Thunder Jazz

Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo won MVP at the NBA Awards in Santa Monica, Calif. on Monday.

The 24-year-old averaged 27.7 points, 12.5 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game while converting on 57.8 percent of his field-goal attempts on the season.

The Greek Freak posted a career-best 57.8% shooting from the floor thanks to being almost unstoppable at the rim, using a plethora of moves around and over his opponents in a dominant display of his all-around skill. The Bucks won the Eastern Conference for the first time since the 2000-01 season. Harden's Rockets finished with the fourth seed in the Western Conference.

The Beard also scored a whopping 2,818 points, the most since Kobe Bryant's 2,832 points in 2005-06 (35.4-point average), putting him as the second-highest gross scorer in the last three decades.

Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro could come as soon as September
Apple now sells a 13-inch and a 15-inch MacBook Pro, with the larger model having a 2,880x1,800 pixel screen. However there have always been those users who wish that Apple would add a bigger notebook to the line-up.

The 29-year-old George was an early MVP favorite before fading down the stretch because of a shoulder injury that required surgery this month.

Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic was named rookie of the year, Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams was named sixth man of the year, Raptors forward Pascal Siakam was named most improved player, and Budenholzer was named coach of the year.

Hosted by Shaquille O'Neal, and televised live on TNT from 8pm CT, the National Basketball Association will honor its players, coaches and executives by handing out its prestigious end of season awards.
