2017 Kia Race to the NBA MVP Ladder Who Wins the Award Westbrook Harden Leonard

We’ve witnessed greatness all season long from players like Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder and James Harden of the Houston Rockets.  Both make a great case to be named the MVP of the league: Westbrook has put together the second-ever season where an NBA player averaged a triple double, and Harden is scoring (29 points per game) and assisting (11 per game) with some of the best in history.  But there’s other players having out-of-this-world seasons, like LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, John Wall and Isaiah Thomas, to name a few!  So who is worthy of the ultimate honor that is chronicled on the Kia Race to the MVP ladder?  Read on and see!

Six-Pack of NBA Candidates: Why Each Could Win

We could get cute and drop some kind of impressive-sounding formula on you to show who deserves to win the MVP award, like:

Points + rebounds + assists x field goal percentage x free throw percentage – turnovers x team wins

Is this how the voting is actually decided?  No.  Will a formula like this ever be used to determine the NBA MVP award?  We can’t say it will never happen, so let’s make it a firm maybe.  Anyway, we’ve been watching the individual performers this season, and we’ve weighed the pros and cons of each player’s MVP candidacy, so we’ll keep it simple.

Here’s the top six candidates, as we see them: Why they might win, and why they might not win.
