The NBA Awards are the NBA’s official annual award show to honor all the league’s top performers on one night. While in previous years these awards were announced separately throughout the postseason, this marked the first time that all recipients were honored on the same night.

The first-ever NBA Awards Show took place live from Basketball City at Pier 36 in New York City on Monday, June 26, 2017 and was televised exclusively by TNT. Hosted by Drake, the show celebrated top performers from the 2016-17 season and honored other NBA luminaries.

This year’s winners included Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, Malcolm Brogdon, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Draymond Green, Eric Gordon, Mike D’Antoni, Dirk Nowitzki and Kemba Walker, among others.

Presenters included Chadwick Boseman, Nick Cannon, Vince Carter, Kevin Garnett, Bryshere Y. Gray, Grant Hill, Monica, Dirk Nowitzki, Candace Parker, Paul Pierce, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Jussie Smollett, John Wall and Jesse Williams. Additional celebrities who attended the show include: Baron Davis, Hill Harper, Reggie Miller, Von Miller, Isiah Thomas, Chris Tucker and Donnie Wahlberg. Model Damaris Lewis served as the trophy presenter for this year’s event.

The 2017 NBA Awards on TNT featured integrations with the Sports Emmy Award-winning Inside the NBA studio team of Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal, along with the league’s biggest stars, celebrity presenters and musical performances.

Additionally, global superstar Nicki Minaj performed as part of the night’s festivities.
