In the 2016-2017 season there have been four outstanding players: Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, and James Harden. All of them of course in the MVP talk for this season. Russell Westbrook has been the most impressive this season averaging a triple double with 31 ppg 10 ast 10 reb. Lebron James who is in most peoples eyes the best player in the NBA finished this season with 26 ppg 8 ast 8 reb. Kawhi Leonard had an impressive quiet season with 25 ppg 3 ast 5 reb. James Harden may be one of the worst defenders in the NBA but, he is one of the most skilled offensive players and he averaged 29 ppg 11 ast 8 reb. As you can see this is a very close race and I think it will go to Westbrook because of the historic season he had, and if not westbrook, I think LeBron deserves it also.
