According to a press release from the NBA, an award called the Larry Bird Trophy will given to the MVP of the Eastern Conference Finals. The MVP of the Western Conference Finals will be the recipient of the Magic Johnson trophy.

The Larry O’Brien Trophy, which is given to the NBA champion each year, has also undergone some changes. The NBA released a video showing how the new trophy was made.

The Bill Russell Trophy, given to the MVP of the NBA Finals, has a similar new look. Lastly, the Eastern Conference championship trophy is now called the Bob Cousy trophy. The Western Conference championship trophy is named after Oscar Robertson.
