(Bleacher Report) – Have you ever seen an MVP race like this one?
If you’re a younger NBA fan, probably not. Then again, even if you’re an older one, there’s a solid chance you’ve never witnessed anything quite like this six-man competition. There have been plenty of two-player battles during the stretch run of seasons past, but this is taking that to an extreme.
James Harden and Stephen Curry are still the presumed favorites, but there are quite a few other standouts with outside chances of being crowned. At the very least, LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook deserve mentions in the competition, since they’ll certainly feature prominently on many a ballot.
We’re obviously looking at those six here, but who else is going to earn a featured spot in the superstar countdown? It was Westbrook taking the top spot in the March 25 edition, so will he hang on to the pole position?
