And as for Simmons, is there any question as to which award he's a finalist for?

LeBron James, James Harden and Anthony Davis are on the shortlist for winning the MVP award as the National Basketball Association announced Wednesday the finalists for a number of awards to be handed out following the end of the postseason.

Harden is widely considered to be the frontrunner to win the award for the first time in his career after coming in second twice, to Stephen Curry in 2015 and to Russell Westbrook in 2017.

Pelicans All-Star Anthony Davis is a finalist for the MVP award and the Defensive Player of the Year award.

While Mitchell did average more points in the regular season, Simmons averaged more rebounds, assists, steals and played more effective defense than his opponent over the first 91 games of his National Basketball Association career and looks like a potential superstar.

Davis led the league with 2.57 blocks per game.
