NBA Awards 2017

The first-ever NBA Awards show is set to take place Monday in the Big Apple, and all of the league’s biggest regular-season honors will be handed out.

Chief among them is the Most Valuable Player award, which boasts the closest race in recent memory, as there is little separating Houston Rockets guard James Harden, San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard and Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook.

Here is all the information you need to know in order to watch the 2017 NBA Awards show, along with nominees and predictions for who will take home every major award.

Where: Basketball City at Pier 36 in New York City

When: Monday, June 26 at 9 p.m. ET

Watch: TNT


Most Valuable Player

Nominees: James Harden (HOU), Kawhi Leonard (SA), Russell Westbrook (OKC)

All three nominees were the lifeblood of their respective teams, but only Westbrook enjoyed a truly historic season.

With 42 triple-doubles, he broke Oscar Robertson’s single-season record and put the Thunder on his back more often than not.

Westbrook had far less support than Harden and Leonard over the course of the campaign, and it may not be a stretch to suggest OKC may have been one of the NBA’s worst teams without him.

The 28-year-old averaged 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game while shooting 42.5 percent from the field and 34.3 percent from long range as a high-volume shooter.

While it would be tough to argue against any of the three candidates coming away with the award, Westbrook was truly more valuable to his team than the others in 2016-17.

Prediction: Westbrook

Rookie of the Year

Nominees: Malcolm Brogdon (MIL), Joel Embiid (PHI), Dario Saric (PHI)

If Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid had managed to play at least 50 games in 2016-17, he would be the runaway choice for Rookie of the Year, but he instead played in just 31.

Because of that, it may come down to a two-horse race between Sixers teammate Dario Saric and Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon.While Brogdon was a cog in a playoff team, Saric really came into his own down the stretch and was a go-to guy for the Sixers with Embiid and Ben Simmons out for the season.

The Croatian averaged 12.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game, showing that he will be a key part of the core that also includes Embiid, Simmons and 2017 No. 1 overall draft pick Markelle Fultz.

Prediction: Saric

Sixth Man

Nominees: Eric Gordon (HOU), Andre Iguodala (GS), Lou Williams (HOU)

Golden State Warriors small forward Andre Iguodala may have been a runaway choice for the Sixth Man award if it counted postseason contributions, but that isn’t the case.

Since it’s a regular-season award, Houston Rockets sharpshooters Eric Gordon and Lou Williams can’t be ignored.

Gordon was with the team for the entire season, while Williams came over in a trade from the Los Angeles Lakers and saw his numbers drop a bit.

Despite being used to playing a starting role, Gordon transitioned seamlessly, putting up 16.2 points per game and knocking down more than three trifectas per contest.

Prediction: Gordon

Coach of the Year

Nominees: Mike D’Antoni (HOU), Gregg Popovich (SA), Erik Spoelstra (MIA)

The NBA Coach of the Year award takes into account both excellence and exceeding expectations, and Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni scored points in both areas.

Houston hovered around .500 in 2015-16 and barely reached the playoffs, but it improved to 55-27 under D’Antoni, which was good for third place in the Western Conference.

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich’s excellence is often taken for granted, but he deserves a long look after leading his team to a 61-21 mark.

Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra is an interesting case due to the fact that his team missed the playoffs at 41-41, but they finished 30-11 and were among the NBA’s hottest teams down the stretch.

Tony Awards 2017 Live

The 2017 Tony Awards air tonight live from Radio City Music Hall in New York, on Sunday, June 11, 2017 (8 – 11 p.m., live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network. Actor Kevin Spacey is hosting the event, with tons of A-listers and Broadway elite appearing as well.

The Tonys — the most earnest and warm-hearted of all the major award shows, even if they only barely count as major — are back! Kevin Spacey will be hosting the 71st annual Tony Awards ceremony, recognizing excellence in Broadway theater, on Sunday, June 11, at 8 pm Eastern on CBS.

Tony Awards 2017Tony Awards 2017The Tonys ceremony is nominally there to grant awards to this season’s Broadway shows, both musicals and plays, but in practice, its true job is to be an ambassador for live theater itself. Most of the country doesn’t have access to the theater performed every day in New York City, and even if you live in New York, tickets can be prohibitively expensive. For theater kids across the country, the Tonys telecast is the closest that they’ll come to actually seeing the alchemy of live actors doing their thing onstage, in front of a live audience.

The 71st annual edition of the Tony Awards take place on Sunday, June 11. While the kudocast will go out live to TV viewers on the east coast beginning at 8 p.m. ET on CBS, the show will be delayed for west coast fans. However, the Tony Awards will be available to cable and satellite TV subscribers on the CBS website and app. The ceremony takes place just blocks away from Broadway at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan. Oscar and Tony winner Kevin Spacey will host the three-hour show.

We are predicting the winners of all 24 categories at the Tony Awards. Our official odds are derived from the predictions of readers like you. “Dear Evan Hansen” will win five Tonys, including the coveted prize of Best Musical. The revival of 1964 Best Musical champ “Hello, Dolly!” will also claim five, including one for Bette Midler. And another new tuner, “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812,” will take four. (See the full list of predicted Tony Awards winners.)

On the play front, no show will win more than two awards. “Oslo” is predicted to take Best Play (and director) while its closest rival, “A Doll’s House Part 2,” will finally win leading lady Laurie Metcalf a Tony Awards after three losses. And while Kevin Kline looks like a lock to pick up his third Tony, his showcase, “Present Laughter,” is expected to lose the revival race to “Jitney.”

There will be performances from the four Best Musical nominees (“Come From Away,” “Dear Evan Hansen,” “Groundhog Day” and “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812” ) and the three Best Musical Revival contenders (“Falsettos,” “Hello, Dolly!” and “Miss Saigon”).

This year’s awards show will air live on CBS, and if you subscribe to CBS All Access, you can watch live online.
