Eight NBA Players Who Could Win Their First MVP This Season

September 8th, 2010 by Kelly Scaletta Leave a reply »
Kobe Bryant and Lebron James have won the MVP the last three years. Pretty much it's been between the two of them each year, though Durant finished second in the voting last year.

Other active winners are Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash, and TIm Duncan. While they are all still playing well, the likelihood is that this year's winner will be a first time winner, and it's more wide open than it's ever been before. 

LeBron's new surroundings make him less likely to be a winner. He no longer is the undisputed "most important man to his team."  Kobe its getting older, but that's not why. Last year's finals showed just how much his teammates matter.

That takes absolutely nothing away from Kobe to say, I just give appropriate tribute to the other members of what is, in my opinion, the most well-rounded team in basketball. Either Kobe or James' could win it, but these are seven players I think could be taking home the hardware for the first time.
