The 2021-2022 season was incredibly serious. With some groups playing amazing and dominating many games, various players are joining the mix to be the top pick to win the 2022 Most Valuable Player award. The race for the sublime individual honor is more challenging than one might expect. Nikola Jokic, Joel Embiid and Giannis Antetokounmpo are the current top 3 in the new MVP step stool. Whatever the case, the formidable list of real contenders continues with players like DeMar DeRozan, Ja Morant, Stephen Curry, Luka Doncic and a few others who have a real shot at the Maurice Podoloff Trophy.
After submitting an MVP-like execution for the Brooklyn Nets on Friday, Kevin Durant took seriously the current MVP race between Joel Embiid and Nikola Jokic, as well as his considerations of not participating in the discussion.
The Nets wrecked a home win over the Portland Trail Blazers, but it wasn’t the whole time. At one point, at 18, they were following a group that Damian Lillard was missing.

Kevin Durant names Joel Embiid as his pick for the MVP race, but snubs Nikola Jokic
Of late, Brooklyn Nets hotshot Kevin Durant revealed his best 3 as well as #1 for the MVP award. The Slim Reaper, himself currently one of the top 10 players in the MVP race, said:
“Joel Embiid, DeMar DeRozan, Ja Morant are my top 3 [for MVP] and I’ll probably go Joel. Jokic, you can throw Jokic in there. But I’ll probably go, Joel. It’s just great players playing at a high level.”
In fact, JoJo, Deebo, and Ja have some really unique individual missions. Whatever the case, it would be criminal for anyone to avoid Nikola Jokic in regards to their top three rundowns.
The Serb currently has a memorable 26.1/13.7/8.1 average and is poised to end the season with the best PER in NBA/ABA history. The Joker also has a nice 42-29 record, just a single win fewer than KD’s MVP leader, despite playing without the appearances of Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. most of the time.
Regardless, we know one thing without a doubt – the MVP race is undoubtedly not an uneven proposition and will undoubtedly end at the last second.
