Durant For MVP?

Why not? Why is he not getting more play? After winning MVP of the All-Star game I really thought this talk would heat up. Kevin Durant  is arguably the best scorer in the Association right now. Who else, besides maybe Kobe, would you want to have the ball in the final minutes. He has  what Skip Bayless calls clutch gene. Look at last night. The Thunder looked lethargic, slow, just going through the motions for three quarters. Then the final quarter arrives, the Thunder down 11 to start and before you know  it Durant single handily brought his team back scoring 18 points for a 105-102 win on the road. How can you argue with that? He repeatedly does that game in game out. The Thunder also have the best record in the league, although by a slim margin.

All-Star MVP Kevin Durant

I don’t see how they don’t cruise through the Western Conference in a head on collision with either the Miami Heat or Chicago Bulls in the finals. And my money would be on the Heat not the Bulls With the Heat imploding to the young Thunder again. And KD should be the front runner for MVP. You can argue for Lebron James, but he is surrounded by another super star in Dwayne Wade. Although Russell Westbrook is no bum. But he is not a top five player like Wade is. We will see how it plays out, but I think Durant will push people to talk about him more and more in the second half of this shortened season.

  1. I couldn’t agree with you more on Durant. I guess LeBron is getting more love because he’s a better defender but if I had a vote, which I don’t, yet, I’d have to give Durant the nod.

    Still plenty of season to be played out, however.

  2. Your definitely right, I think Durant should be getting a lot more buzz than he is right now. The only thing with LeBron is, yes he has Wade and you could argue that it helps him get those numbers but to the contrary, he actually put up better numbers his first MVP season in Cleveland. I think LeBron is getting more buzz because of PER chase and a lot of people thinking he got snubbed last season for MVP with his numbers. A lot of season left but Durant should definitely be in favorites talk.
