New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis has given his vote to Houston Rockets guard James Harden to be crowned league MVP this season.
Kerr jokingly picks Westbrook for MVP: Golden State coach is obviously backing Curry.
Blatt says LeBron is Cavs’ MVP: Cavs coach talks up James’ impact.
Bogut believes Curry is MVP: Warriors center points out flaw in every other player’s case.
Davis had been considered a candidate himself as he averages 24.7 points per game on 54 percent shooting while he’s also grabbing 10.4 rebounds per contest.
Add to the mix his blocking ability and rim protection, the Pelicans youngster has proven to be the next star of the league, but unfortunately his time hasn’t come quite yet.
While Russell Westbrook and LeBron James have made their respective cases for the MVP award, it is widely acknowledged that the race is now between Stephen Curry and Harden with just under 10 games remaining in the regular season.
Opinion is certainly split around the NBA, but Davis knows who he would give the award to.
“It’s tough. A lot of guys are playing out of their mind. James Harden, Russ (Westbrook), Steph (Curry), LeBron (James),” Davis said on the Dan Patrick Show.
“(Harden is) out of his mind. He’s definitely playing out of his mind. We talk about this on my team every day. It’s like every day. I think with him not having Dwight [Howard] for as much as he did, and he still competed and is still winning games for them, it’s unreal.”
It remains to be seen who secures the award with Kevin Durant the current holder, but the general consensus remains that it will be either Harden or Curry.
Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut insisted that Curry should be the MVP considering he has had a significant impact on games consistently all year despite playing less minutes than all his rivals.
That efficiency can be countered by the argument that Harden has had all the responsibility on his shoulders and has still produced, but yet the Warriors remain the best team in the league with a 61-13 record.
Given that it is such a difficult decision to make, good luck to the voters making their pick…
