1. Jokic
2. Durant
3. Curry
4. Giannis
5. Gobert/Paul/Butler

Jokic is looking like having another otherworldly season with even less help this time. Probably the biggest carry job since I don’t even know.

Steph is my pick so far, Giannis another worthy choice. Jokic has missed a bit too much of the season to date, but should get back into contention. KD/DeRozan my 4/5 right now. Haven't thought past that.

Denver isn't going to win enough games but Jokic is the best player. It's incredible they're still .500. He's basically walking into opposing arenas and beating good teams by himself.

I think very similarly.

I was thinking Butler over DeRozan for the 5th spot, but DeRozan makes sense.

Curry, Jokic, Giannis, Durant, all having great seasons. It may come down to team records, and going off that right now it's Steph. The Nuggets sitting at 11-11 really hurts Joker.

There are 3 or 4 very worthy candidates right now. This looks like a fun race.

Steph should rightfully be #1 but Giannis is catching up. KD and Jokic are 3rd and 4th in some order. I really want to reward Jokic for being so dominant but we all know that's not how MVP voting works. If he can somehow get his team a few games above .500, he'll look a lot stronger.


Even though I don't think he cares at this point, Giannis is in a great spot to have a strong late season run and steal the award if Steph has a slump or two.

Same top 4 here too

All worthy winners but looks at that Denver roster…
If he gets that mess to top 3 in the west it should be over and done.

I'll vote for the current NBA leader in points. DeMar DeRozan. You read that right

1. Steph
2. Jokic
3. Durant

If the season ended now Durant would be 2nd, team record and games played, but I don't see any point voting on that hypothetical. If the season continues as is jokic will have done more overall.

The question shouldn't be who's MVP, it should be whether Curry is unanimous. At this point I think he is.

Hes def not unanimous after tonight but still in the lead

Steph, Kd, Jokic and Giannis are the only real candidates unless Luka wakes up. Demar and Pg are having cute seasons but its like Pg13s "Mvp" campaign in Okc. Hes not actually Mvp level

1. Jokic
2. Curry
3. Giannis
4. KD

If voting was done today Curry would almost certainly win but Jokic has been a more valuable player.
