LeBron, Curry, Durant… The big favorites for the MVP title
After Nikola Jokic’s double, who will win the MVP title? Several candidates stand out seriously. Kevin Durant, LeBron James and Stephen Curry, the former NBA, see themselves reconnecting with success. But behind them, there are beautiful people with Giannis Antetokounmpo, Joël Embiid and of course Nikola Jokic who will want to achieve the hat-trick. But the big favorite is Luka Doncic.
For two years, Nikola Jokic dominates the NBA. Even if the Denver Nuggets are still fair to worry the other franchises in the playoffs, jokic doesn’t need anyone to regale in the regular season. Even though Joel Embiid long thought he could take his title from him MVP, Nikola Jokic ended up achieving the double. A controversial feat since many observers gave their preference to Joel Embiid. Will this year be the right one for the pivot of Sixers ? Given the competition, it’s not won…
Kevin Durant to respond to criticism
Kevin Durant will be a serious contender. In his career, K.D. only won the title once MVPit was in 2014 with the Thunder. Years have passed, the franchises too, but Kevin Durant is still the exceptional player he was already 8 years ago. With uncertainty over his future, the two-time champion NBA will want, whatever the case, to mark the occasion. If he leaves, K.D. will want to hit hard from the start. If it remains net, During will want to redeem himself.
LeBron James, return of the boss
How to talk about the trophy of MVP without quoting LeBron James ? Despite the difficult season Los Angeles Lakersthe King comes out of an exercise with more than 30 points on average. At 37, James still has the legs and after a year without the playoffs, he too will want to redeem himself. Although he did not win the title of MVP since 2013, LeBron James has four at home. It is therefore difficult to put it aside in this race…
Stephen Curry continues his recital
same for me Stephen Curry. The leader of Golden State Warriors coming out of an exceptional season punctuated by a league title NBA and a first trophy of MVP of the Finals. Despite its XXL track record, Curry is not satisfied. For the only MVP in history elected unanimously, this season is a new one and he has everything to win a third statuette, six years after his last success.

Giannis Antetokounmpo wants his title back
Even though he hasn’t won this title for two seasons, Giannis Antetokounmpo is a more than credible candidate to be MVP. Still brilliant with Milwaukee Bucksthe Greek will want to react after the elimination in the semi-finals of the conference against the Celtics. Already crowned twice, Giannis Antetokounmpo will be keen to fill his trophy cabinet a little more. Still need to get ahead Joel Embiid…
Finally the hour of Joël Embiid?
The year of the coronation for Joel Embiid ? Passed very close last year, the Cameroonian hopes to finally get his hands on the title of MVP, which would be a feat for an African player. With the arrival of James Harden at the Sixers, Embiid will have a sizeable support to shine. However, the roles risk being shared, which could cost him dearly at voting time. Joël Embiid knows what to expect!
Achievable hat-trick for Jokic
The pass of three for Nikola Jokic ? Still sparkling last season with the nuggetsthe solid Serbian pivot won his second title of MVP consecutive. A feat for a player who had been drafted in 41st position when he arrived in NBA in 2014… With an average of 27.1 points, Nikola Jokic is coming off the best season of his career. It remains to be seen whether the Joker will be able to do even better in the next exercise.
Luka Doncic, the chef’s surprise
For the bookmakers, the big favorite is Luka Doncic. At 23, the Slovenian confirmed all the hopes that had been placed in him and established himself as one of the best players in the NBA. If anyone had any doubts, Doncic immediately silenced the skeptics. And given the recruitment of Mavericksnext season promises to be tempting for Luka Doncic which will have a bit more support. It’s up to him to play!
