With all the injuries, Lillard is getting up there, he has CJ back now and the LA teams are falling, one more push and he'd make a great candidate, OTOH Harden is making it really hard to not pick him despite the Houston saga.

Giannis is playing the best right now of his career with the improved free throws and play making. With all the new additions this years team going to be fun watching them mesh together as a team before the playoffs.

Have you heard anything on a timeline for Embiid to come back? He was my favorite before his injury but if he is out for a few more weeks I think it may be too much to come back from. Especially with so many other worthy candidates.

If Durant continues to stay out and Brooklyn gets the #1 seed, Harden is a top 2 candidate.

Guys tell me when dEnVerS EaSy sChedule kicks in, because they just lost again.

Everybody agrees that Westbrook winning in 2017 was a mistake. Jokic winning as a 5-6th seed would look the same..

Except that Jokic is about 10 times better than Westbrook and his triple doubles (including tonight) come naturally.

Jokic is my pick now. Giannis would probably be my second pick.

Yeah well if he’s not coming back soon then I’ll switch my vote to Jokic. Their record will probably be close enough to Milwaukee’s and Portland’s and his stats are amazing. So Jokic - Dame - Giannis. I think Giannis might suffer from some voter fatigue.

I might be tempted to say Luka now, he is doing one of the biggest carrying jobs I've seen in recent times.
You just have to compare his second scoring options to those of the other guys in this poll....says it all really
