Kevin Durant is not the 2017 NBA Finals MVP

Kevin Durant is getting all of the attention during the 2017 NBA Finals. He is the main reason that the Golden State Warriors have a 2-0 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers. He is now being called the best player in the league and many believe that he is the front runner to win the 2017 NBA Finals MVP.

Kevin Durant’s Numbers

Although I do not think he will win the MVP, you can’t deny his numbers up to this point in the Finals. He is the front runner from a scoring point with over 33 points per game. Durant also cleans the boards averaging 11 boards per game which again leads the Warriors. He is also playing very well on defense. Cavalier players are shooting just 37 percent when he is the primary defender.

Can’t Ignore the King

LeBron James is still the best player on the planet. He is doing his best to keep the Cavs in the Finals, but he is not getting any help. He is an automatic triple-double when he is on the floor, to include game two when he had 29 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds.

But The King Won’t Win the MVP

For as good as LeBron has been he has two things going against him. First, he is losing and usually the MVP comes from the winning team. So if you are betting on LeBron to win the MVP, you are essentially betting on the Cavs to win the 2017 NBA Finals.

Secondly as pointed out by Warriors.247.sports.com, LeBron struggles in the 4th quarter of the NBA Finals. LeBron has only had 4 points in both games combined although it could be argued both games have been blowouts. Either way James is not the pick to win MVP.

The 2017 NBA Finals MVP is……

Stephen Curry. He is getting overlooked but he is having an incredible series. Curry recorded his first career postseason triple-double with 32 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in game two and has played incredibly. Curry is averaging 30 points and 10.5 assists on 46.2 percent shooting through the first two games and has a very good chance to win the award.

He has also made LeBron look foolish as he has shown incredible handles and drive during the NBA Finals. While everyone is focusing on Durant, now is the time to bet on Stephen Curry to win the 2017 NBA Finals MVP.
