Before we can completely close the book on the 2018-19 NBA season, there is one final order of business to attend to: handing out the hardware. Months of debate and anticipation will come to an end on Monday night at the 2019 NBA Awards Show, which will be hosted by Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal. Many of the top players in the league will be in attendance as heralded annual awards like MVP and Rookie of the Year are handed out to their rightful owners. Other awards to be given out include Defensive Player of the Year, Most Improved Player, Sixth Man of the Year and Coach of the Year. In addition to the major awards, they will also announce the winner for Executive of the Year (Masai Ujiri, anyone?).
It’s been a while since the regular season ended, so a brief refresher regarding all of the major awards and finalists seems appropriate. With that in mind, here’s everything you need to know about the awards show.

We can throw team success away in this race for Rookie of the Year; none of the finalists reached the playoffs, but they all registered productive seasons to start their respective careers on the right foot.
Deandre Ayton put together a solid year, averaging a double-double, 16.3 points and 10.3 rebounds per game, but he didn’t have an extraordinary impact on the court. The 20-year-old provided a reliable big body in the paint capable of grabbing boards and scoring easy buckets around the basket.
Ayton didn’t stretch the court with a 6.7′ average in shot distance from the hoop; he had a good but not great year.
Trae Young came into the league as advertised, a dual-threat point guard with deep range on his shot and cerebral court vision. He averaged 19.1 points and 8.1 assists per contest, but the 20-year-old must work on scoring efficiency to elevate his game.
Young shot 42 percent from the floor and 32 percent from beyond the arc. He will likely focus on shot selection going forward, but that hole in his game may hold him back from this award.
