Could a big man win the NBA MVP this year? Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis and Nikola Jokic all have MVP hopes as they enter the season. If Embiid can stay healthy, Harrison believes he’s a dark horse candidate to win it. What about NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard? A regular season MVP is the only thing lacking on his Hall of Fame resume. Will he win one with the Clippers? Leonard’s new teammate Paul George got third in MVP voting last year and would certainly like to be in the mix again this year. Kyrie Irving is a longshot, but without Kevin Durant, he will have to carry the load for the Nets and could have an MVP-type season.
Here’s Harrison’s Top 10 MVP Candidates for the 2019-20 NBA Season:
#10 Kyrie Irving, Nets
#9 Paul George, Clippers
#8 Nikola Jokic, Nuggets
