NBA All-Star MVP Prediction

The NBA All-Star Game is tonight and I am going to rank who I think have the best chance to win MVP.

1. russellRussell Westbrook, PG, West, OKC 

Westbrook always has a great All-Star break and this really has been is best season. He is playing out of this World and is the most explosive player in the game. Don’t be surprised if the MVP Westbrook wins it coming off the bench.

2. James Harden, SG, West, Houston images-1

James Harden is playing at an MVP level, leading the league in scoring and he is the best one on one player in the NBA. Me as a Thunder fan, I am still in disbelief that OKC traded him. Harden is the favorite to win it. He will put on a show tonight.

 

3. Jimmy Butler, SG/SF, East, Chicago Unknown

Being from Chicago, I had to put a Bull on this list. Although Butler has been nurturing an injury he said he’s ready to go. Butler has the most upside in the NBA and he is relentless. Many people would be shocked if he brings back the ASG MVP to Chicago, but I won’t be.

4. Steph Curry, PG, West, GS Unknown-1

Curry is arguably the greatest shooter of all time. Coming off of his very impressive 3-point contest victory, it could be very likely that Steph rides that momentum into the All-Star game and winning the MVP.

5. Carmelo Anthony, SF, East, NYimages-2

Even though Melo and his Knicks have had the worst season possible, the Stars are aligning for Anthony at the All-Star game. His home town is the host city and this will be his last game of the season for him because the Knicks are shutting him down after the ASG. How sweet would it be front of the Knicks fans to see Melo end it with the MVP.

MVP Top 10 Picks for NBA

1.) Kevin Durant, SF, OKC: 

imagesKevin Durant has emerged as one of the premier superstars in the NBA.  He has lead the Oklahoma City Thunder from being the worst team in the Association to the biggest threat to the reigning champs, Miami Heat.  He has been a scoring machine.  Durant is impossible to guard.  At 6-10 Durant is one of the best shooters in the NBA.  We all knew that Durant could score coming into the season, but he has really improved on the other side of the ball.  With Durant’s long arms, he has become a lock down defender.  Durant is currently leading the NBA in scoring, averaging 28.3 points per game and has lead his Thunder to a 22-4 record, which is the best in the NBA.  At this time, Kevin Durant has been playing the best basketball in the NBA.

There is much more to like about Durant than just be an outstanding player.  He is the NBA’s good child.  He is the most humble and charitable star out there.  If you had to choose between Lebron and Durant and that was the deciding factor, KD would win in a land slide.  There really isn’t any reason to not like Durant, unless you are the coach of the opposing team’s defense.

2.) Paul George, SF/SG, IND

3.) Lebron James, SF, MIA

4.) LaMarcus Aldridge, PF, POR

5.) Russell Westbrook, PG, OKC

6.) Chris Paul, PG, LAC

7.) Damian Lillard, PG, POR

8.) Stephen Curry, PG/SG, GS

9.) James Harden, SG, HOU

10.) Kevin Love, PF, MIN
