Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Kevin Durant or LeBron James: Who Will Win the MVP?

Posted on 11 Aug, 2016, by in Featured

The main candidates to win the MVP next season: Obviously Stephen Curry, with two in a row behind him. Kevin Durant, who’ll now be a teammate to Curry on the Golden State Warriors. Surely James Harden, who has a solo show going on with the Houston Rockets. And as usual LeBron James is also in the mix, but it’ll probably another season of him taking it a bit easy at time during the regular season. And of course, it’s impossible to forget about Russell Westbrook, without anyone “stealing” his spotlight and possessions, ready to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder on an angry F U tour, directed at a certain player and team.

The MVP award, Most Valuable Player, goes to the best in the NBA season. But shouldn’t it be going to the player which means the most to his team? Is that even something that’s measurable?

Posted on 25 Jan, 2015, by in NBA

The favorites to win the NBA MVP in 2015 are probably Stephen Curry and James Harden, but Marc Gasol should be looked at very carefully even if his numbers aren’t as impressive, and anyone sleeping on LeBron James should think again because it seems that he’s just starting showing us what he’s still capable of.

NBA MVP Winners Without a Championship

Posted on 1 Jun, 2014, by in NBA

With another unsuccessful bid to reach the NBA finals, Kevin Durant joins the elite club of players that have a regular season MVP but haven’t won an NBA championship. Charles Barkley, Karl Malone and Allen Iverson are already retired, while Steve Nash doesn’t look like someone who’ll win it before he leaves. Derrick Rose? He’ll be happy with getting back on the court, let alone contending for the title. More

From the moment LeBron James entered the NBA, he’s been out on a mission, set out to accomplish it by himself or by those viewing from the outside, judging and surveying every move. Even after winning championships, MVPs and anything else the NBA has to offer, the challenges remain the same. It’s only the measuring stick to judge him by that’s been altered. More

LeBron James is Much More Dominant Than You Think

Posted on 20 Mar, 2013, by in NBA

If leading the Miami Heat on a 23 game winning streak while looking like the favorites to repeat as NBA champions this season isn’t enough, maybe the fact that LeBron James might win his fourth MVP award in five years will do it for you. If not, than his consistency, and winning the NBA’s player of the month award 24 times in the last 50 times it’s been handed out, should be the finishing and convincing touch More

San Antonio Spurs – Tony Parker Deserves More MVP Talk

Posted on 6 Feb, 2013, by in NBA

There’s no chance Tony Parker ever gets to win the NBA MVP award. The San Antonio Spurs point guard simply isn’t good enough on a season-long basis to overcome names like LeBron James and Kevin Durant, but he’s playing his best basketball once again this season, with or without Tim Duncan. More

The Los Angeles Lakers might be turning a corner, but it’s still hard to see them making the postseason in the stacked West, four games behind the 8th place.
