The MVP award will be announced very soon, the leading candidates for the award are: James Harden, Stephen Curry, LeBron James and Russell Westbrook, we all know about them, but who are some guys who are flying under the radar?
Davis is having his best season as a pro. He is currently averaging 24 points per game 10 rebounds per game and 3 blocks per game. He might even lead the Pelicans to the playoffs. Considering all the injuries that they have had this season, him leading the Pelicans to the playoffs in the loaded western conference would be an amazing feat.
Chris Paul has been overshadowed by the likes of Russell Westbrook and Stephen Curry. Paul is currently averaging 19 points per game on 48 FG% and he is also averaging 10 assists per game. He has also been very efficient also, he leads the NBA in AST/TO ratio. Despite his All Star teammate Blake Griffin missing 15 games and defending 6th man of the year winner Jamal Crawford missing 18 games, Chris Paul has lead the Clippers to another 50+ win season.
Aldridge is having another great season. He is currently averaging 23 points per game and 10 rebounds per game. He has been the best player on a 51 win Trailblazer team. Just imagine where the Portland Trailblazers would be without a healthy Aldridge. Remember, he was supposed to miss 6-8 weeks because he tore a ligament in his left thumb but he choose to postpone surgery and continue playing, he has been there for his team.
