Re: Front runner for MVP right now?
If both teams keep going at this pace it will be extremely tight at the end of the season. OKC with a few more wins, LeBron with slightly higher averages across the board...
It will come down to voter preference and possibly voter fatigue.
Also interesting is the recent Spurs resurgence. Without knowing it, the Spurs have actually helped LeBron's MVP case. Durant looks better as an MVP candidate when/if OKC has the best record in the NBA and he's their leader.
However, if OKC still has a better record than Miami but San Antonio is the clear cut leader in the league-wide standings, it sort of diminishes the whole "Best player on the best team" argument for Durant.
