LeBron, KD, Steph, the Beard, Westbrook - there can be only one NBA MVP.
Many say the LeBron James is the best basketball player on the planet. That is tough to argue against, though we still seem to have a bunch of potential NBA MVP candidates on our hands.
If the season ended today, who would win the MVP honor? The Basketball Movement weighs in.
How about LeBron? He has spoiled us for years with a combination of size, strength, and skill unlike anything we have seen. He has been putting up big numbers this season, but the Cavs have been a dissapointment.
Kevin Durant is in the debate for greatest basketball player alive as well. He continues to score like crazy and has improved his defense this year, contributing to the Warriors NBA-leading record. However, he is splitting that accomplishment with another former MVP.
We are all familiar with what Stephen Curry can do. He is on pace to be the best shooter in NBA history and continues to lead his team to the top year after year. His play has been stellar, but it is tougher to gauge his value playing alongside Durant.
The reigning MVP anyone? Russell Westbrook became the second player in NBA history to average a triple-double last season, earning him the MVP honor. He is less than a rebound away from doing it again this year, though his scoring is down.
James Harden is likely leading in this conversation at this point in the season. He is averaging 31 points, 9 assists, and 5 boards a game while powering his team to the second best record in the league. He has been doing it without CP3 for much of the season. All highlighted by his recent 60 point triple-double.
There are certainly other players worth naming such as DeMar DeRozan, Kyrie Irving, and Giannis Antetokounmpo being the standouts.
