MVP, Defensive Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and Most Improved Player finalists unveiled

The finalists for the major NBA awards were released on Friday. Those awards included the MVP Award, Defensive Player of the Year, Sixth Man of the Year and the Most Improved Player. The Coach of the Year and Rookie of the Year finalists were also announced. There was also a new NBA award added to the mix, the Clutch Player of the Year Award. There has been much debate throughout the season regarding these awards and while some fans are surely happy, others might feel upset. The MVP discussion in particular has been a hot topic and quite frankly all three of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Joel Embiid and Nikola Jokic have a legitimate case at winning the award.
