Blake Griffin thinks 2013-14 NBA MVP is a two-man racePosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s ESPN Los Angeles reporting that Blake Griffin agrees with many in the basketball world who feel that LeBron James or Kevin Durant will come away with this season’s NBA Most Valuable Player award:
Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin was named the Western Conference Player of the Week for the third time this season on Monday but don’t look for him to start campaigning to win the MVP.
“No, I think the MVP race is a two-man race,” Griffin said. “The stretch of games that we’ve played and we’ve been successful has been a huge team effort. Jamal Crawford was playing out of his mind before he got hurt and guys have stepped up and really done their part. With our team I don’t think it’s one guy that’s making us go.
“I genuinely believe it’s been a total team effort.”
Griffin believes the MVP will eventually go to LeBron James or Kevin Durant but he has at least vaulted himself into the conversation this season, averaging a career-high 24.3 points, 9.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists while shooting 69.9 percent from the free throw line.
