Steph Curry has been dynamic all season, but as the stretch for the finals is approaching, he has suffered an ankle and knee injury. All of these injuries relating to his knee have caused Steph to miss a series and some games. Despite averaging 30 points per game and leading his team to breaking an NBA record for wins, he isn’t the undisputed champion.
Lebron James has been King since he has step on the court of the NBA. As the undisputed leader of the Cavs, he has been leading the team in points per games and assists. With his team coming on as of late and look to be the front-runner for the Finals trophy, Lebron has claimed yet again he’s the best player in the NBA despite having youngs guys on his team. Well, as of right,now the whole team is playing like veterans. He has a strong chance for MVP.
Russell Westbrook as the Robin to Kevin Durant’s Batman or vice versa, Westbrook has became his own man in the NBA. As a top 3 point guard and one of the most dynamic players with the ball in his hand or not, he makes his mark. With highlight plays every game of swishes or slam dunks it’s surprise he isn’t considered the MVP. A well rounded point guard that averages a double-double with 23.5 points per game and 10 assists. Maybe those assists are why Kevin Durant has won MVP.
The lanky shooter from the DMV has developed his game from playing at the University of Texas, to playing with the Seattle Supersonics to transitioning in OKlahoma CIty. The long frame of Kevin Durant (6’9) has showed out with lights out shooting, range dunks and good defense. As the heir apparent to Lebron James and Carmelo Anthony has averaging 28.2 points per game has been a nightmare for everyone in the league. It would be hard too tell him no, for the MVP race.
