Who ya got for MVP?
This is the most crowded field, the most interesting race for MVP in at least a decade, maybe two. One could make a valid case for four guys: James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Kawhi Leonard, and LeBron James. Other strong players — Kevin Durant, Isaiah Thomas, John Wall — all float around the perimeter.
Westbrook may need a little push from a marketing campaign. Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post conducted a media straw poll and found voters have Harden as the clear frontrunner. Talking to voters I know, there is also a sense that it still is very close between Harden and Westbrook, and the final 15 games will matter in the voting at the end.
We know how Kanter and Adams would vote.
