LeBron is in chill-mode for the regular season. Westbrook isn't going to win 50 games. Is Harden going to win 50 games? Will the Spurs be as dominant or as last year, or even come close enough to make Kawhi a favorite? Will Indiana be a player in the East? Lots of questions.
I can realistically see Chris Paul taking the award if the Clippers win 55+ and lock up the #2 seed. That's not out the question.
Excluding my Durant pick (and Curry as well for the hell of it), here's what I see the race looking like.
1. Chris Paul
2. Kawhi Leonard
3. LeBron James
4. James Harden/Russell Westbrook
6. Paul George
7. Damian Lillard (Kerr's pick)
