Giannis MVP, Doncic Rookie of the Year

Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo took home MVP besting the Houston Rockets star and defending champion James Harden, as well as Oklahoma City Thunder swingman Paul George. 


Dallas Mavericks sensation Luka Doncic is the 2018-19 Rookie of the Year, beating out Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young and Phoenix Suns big man Deandre Ayton. 


Doncic averaged 21.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and six assists during his rookie campaign, was a unanimous selection to the All-Rookie First Team. Along the way, he won multiple Rookie of the Month awards, became the second-youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double and joined Oscar Robertson, Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Tyreke Evans as the only rookies in NBA history to average 20 points, five rebounds and five assists. 


Mike Budenholzer of the Milwaukee Bucks was the Coach of the Year.


Budenholzer, whose Bucks finished with the league's best overall record in his first season in Milwaukee, was followed by Doc Rivers, who led the Clippers to a playoff spot with a roster short on top-tier talent, and Michael Malone, who took the Nuggets from outside of the playoff picture to the second seed in the ultra-competitive Western Conference.
