I know that it is still early, but since the first All-Star ballot came out, I thought we should take stock and see who the early front-runners are for MVP.
Entering training camp, this was supposed to be only a two-man race between LeBron James and Kevin Durant. But I don't think the voting is that simple as there are many contenders having great years.
But after much thought, I have shrunk my list down to four players:
Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers
29.5 PPG, 5.2 REB, 5 AST, PER 25.8
Bryant should be on any list of potential MVPs. He still is one of the greatest closers the game has ever seen. He also makes some of the toughest shots imaginable and just reached 30,000 points for his career. Unfortunately with the Lakers being below .500 at this point, Bryant is last on my four-man list.
LeBron James, Miami Heat
25.4 PPG, 8.6 REB, 6.7 AST, PER 29.03
Before anybody goes crazy on James being No. 3 on this list, let me just say that he is probably the player that 30 out ...
