Players Who Qualify For The 2017-18 Season MVP

James Harden

2191 points, 389 rebounds, 630 assists, 126 steals and 50 blocks

This year might really be James Harden’s year. After leading the Houston Rockets to a league-leading 65 wins, his claim to the MVP award is definitely in reckoning. His 30.4 scoring average reflects that he is the hardest to guard in the league and ends up almost scoring at will to give his team the upper hand.

LeBron James

2251 points, 709 rebounds, 747 assists, 116 steals and 71 blocks

King James is in his 15th season and he isn’t slowing down. In fact, he has outran, outpaced, outshot and outplayed just about every player he played against this year. His brilliance and dominance of the game saved Cleveland from its internal issues. LeBron James is clearly one of the front runners to win the MVP award this year after scoring the most points in the league so far.

Anthony Davis

2110 points, 832 rebounds, 174 assists, 115 steals and 193 blocks

He might be a surprise MVP candidate for some but the big man from the Pelicans has the stats to prove that he is right up there with the best this season. Anthony Davis entered the MVP conversation after DeMarcus Cousins went down with a season ending injury. Davis might be the best two-way player in the league now with his league-best 193 blocks.

Russell Westbrook

2028 points, 804 rebounds, 820 assists, 147 steals and 20 blocks

Westbrook is the reigning MVP but there are some who think that Westbrook does not have a real shot at defending his MVP title. However, Westbrook has done pretty well this season after averaging a triple double once again this year, something that no other player has ever done consecutively.
