After years of the MVP race being fully a two-man duel between LeBron James and Kevin Durant, this year is a tough road ahead for the NBA’s highest individual honor features three fresh faces leading the pack. Here would be the Week 15 top 10 NBA most valuable player rankings.
Chris Paul isn’t setting up exactly the same gaudy offensive numbers as he did early in his career, he is the top player and leader for the Los Angeles Clippers. His 4.33 assist to turnover ratio is the greatest in the NBA.
After struggling with his jump shot early a couple of years ago, John Wall has proven to be one of the very most complete floor ball handlers in the NBA. This 2010 No. 1 overall pick this season leads the NBA assists per game at 10.2 and has carried the Washington Wizards to a 31-18 record.
Considering the quantity of scrutiny the Cleveland Cavaliers have already been under since the beginning of the summer season, you’d think LeBron James was having a worse year than his statistics show. Cleveland’s 2-8 record without James active indicates how valuable “King James” would be to the Cavaliers.
The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard is having the best year of his seven-year career. Despite his outstanding season, Russell Westbrook does not have any opportunity to win MVP unless he is able to propel Oklahoma City to the postseason.
Looking at a solid player could win this year, is Houston Rockets SG James Harden. The heavily-bearded left-hander is a force offensively for his entire career, but has turned it down a step in 2014-15. After receiving heavy scrutiny last season over deficiencies in effort on the defensive end, Harden has improved leaps and bounds in 2010 on that half of the court.
Stephen Curry is the greatest player on the best team in the NBA, and when it comes to naming the league’s MVP, that combination is tough to beat. It surely doesn’t hurt that Curry has swiftly become a supporter favorite, as evidenced by the very fact the Warriors’point guard received probably the most fan votes for the All-Star game.
