Fifth season in the NBA might be the year when Luka Doncic finally wins his first MVP award. A survey of general managers from around the league has the Slovenian superstar as number one favorite for the award with 48% of votes.
Giannis Antetokounmpo who already has two MVPs under his belt finished second with 34% of votes. Joel Embiid (14%) and Stephen Curry (3%) completed the list of the top four favorites.
Interestingly, last season Kevin Durant received the most votes – 37% – in this category, but wasn’t even included in the MVP conversation as the season progressed.
