Coach Doc Rivers on Wednesday night was asked about the MVP race. His reply was only partially surprising.
“I think (Kevin) Durant’s had the best year,” Rivers said of the Oklahoma City star. “I still think LeBron (James) is the best player in the NBA, but I think Durant has had an MVP year. I really believe that. I don’t know who has had a better year. And I honestly think Blake would be right behind him, in my opinion, but I don’t think I have a vote.”
Blake Griffin could finish third in the voting, but Durant and James figure to be first and second one way or the other.
