Super Bowl champion and three-time Pro Bowl receiver Keyshawn Johnson and retired NBA player-turned-ESPN analyst Jay Williams discuss the likely winner of the NBA MVP in the upcoming season between the Los Angeles Lakers point forward and NBA Finals MVP LeBron James, Dallas Mavericks position-less guard Luka Doncic and Brooklyn Nets small forward Kevin Durant.

LeBron James is coming off of his fourth title and at age 35 last season, averaged 25.3 points, a league-high 10.2 assists, 7.8 rebounds, and 1.2 steals while shooting at 49.3 percent from the field.

Luka Doncic averaged 28.8 points, 9.4 rebounds, 8.8 assists, 2.8 threes, and 1.0 steal 33.6 minutes during the 2019-20 season. Doncic is the only player in NBA history with over 20 triple-doubles at age 21 or younger.

Kevin Durant missed last season while recovering from an Achilles injury. The 32-year-old star averaged 26 points, 5.9 assists, and 6.4 rebounds per game during the 2018-19 season.
