NEW YORK — The Rockets showed up and showed out at the NBA Awards Show Monday night in New York — winning three awards! Most of us left the first-ever end of season awards show, which was hosted by Drake, impressed but a little disappointed.
Unfortunately, “The Beard” did not take home an award. James Harden was an MVP be finalist, but finished second to Russell Westbrook.
In his first year as Rockets head coach, Mike D’antoni wins NBA Coach of the Year.
In a battle between two, Rockets’ Eric Gordon beat out teammate Lou Williams for the NBA Sixth Man of the Year award.
We can’t forget to mention the heart and hustle of the Red Nation. Patrick Beverley is the recipient of the NBA hustle award!
As for the rest of the team……
Let’s focus on bringing that ring back to “Clutch City” next year!
