So far, I'd say the likely candidates are LeBron, Durant and Melo. I think Kobe's playing at an MVP level but the Lakers' record won't help him right now. Thoughts?
It might be Durant's year. They've been trying to get him one for a minute now but LeBron has been special these past few years.
No.Right now it's Melo. This is just as much a story award as it is a production one. He has everything going for him: 1) Redemption. 2) Surprising record. 3) Missing his co-star. 4) Leading the NY revival. 5) Rounding out his game.
He's definitely better than Gay, but Gasol has been huge for them, too. Also Conley is playing a big role. If you had to pick an MVP candidate out of that bunch, would have to be ZBo, I'd assume. He hasn't completely separated himself enough for it not to be forced, though, I'd think.Anyone not from Memphis going to mention Zach Randolph or does he not get consideration because he's not much better than Gasol or Gay?
This.The michael jordan rule is in effect for me. Lebron is the best player in the league and he is on the best team. He wins it every year until that fact changes
