That is great...but nowhere near what Lebron is doing.
Yeah, LeBron definitely deserves MVP right now and I still think Durant is second, but I can't argue with Parker being ahead of Durant on the MVP ladder right now if you base it on their recent play.
But yeah, LeBron is having an absurd season, but so is Durant. Parker too, although if you just look at their individual numbers, he's clearly a couple of notches below LeBron or Durant.
27-8-7-2-1 on 57/42/75 and 64% TS and 61% eFG
29-8-5-2-1 on 52/42/91 and 66% TS and 57% eFG
21-3-8-1 on 54/38/84 and 60% TS and 55% eFG
And then if you want to get into more advanced metrics...
13.08 WS (2nd), .314 WS/48 (1st), 10.09 OWS (1st), 3.00 DWS
13.14 WS (1st), .300 WS/48 (2nd), 9.87 OWS (2nd), 3.27 DWS (7th)
8.76 WS (5th), .242 WS/48 (4th), 6.83 OWS (4th)
Don't know where, exactly, LeBron ranks in DWS because I could only see the top 10 on BBR. But 10th place is 3.08 so I'm guessing he's just outside the top 10. And I know, WS, WS/48, OWS, and DWS don't always accurately tell the whole story, but it just gives you a further look into the season they're having.
