Top Candidates for the 2021 NBA MVP Award

Last updated on noviembre 15th, 2021

As we approach the end of the regular season, the race for the 2021 Most Valuable Player or NBA MVP award is getting intense. The criteria for winning the award have always been versatile. This is because there are a lot of factors to consider. The NBA MVP award is usually given to players who have the most exceptional individual performances in a season. It involves the best player on the team with the best record or it can also be given to the player who has played a season that’s statistically incredible.

Awarding the NBA MVP award combines statistics and subjective evaluation, which is why as you can see from the graph above, only the best and most acknowledged players have won the NBA MVP award numerous times.

For this season, there are many candidates as to who will be this year’s MVP. Here are the players that most sport researchers consider suitable for the award.

1. Joel Embiid

This season, Embiid showed a great performance alongside the Philadelphia 76ers, who are No. 2 in the East Conference. He was able to dominate his opponents in both offense and defense. Although he has missed 19 games overall because of several injuries, he still has impressive numbers. He averages 29.8 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 3.1 assists.

2. Nikola Jokic

Denver Nuggets Nikola Jokic has played every single game this season. He carried the load and picked up the pace when the Nuggets were off to a disappointing start. However, just as Denver was getting its momentum, Jamal Murray went down with an ACL injury. This has led to him being put on the sidelines indefinitely. Jokic was back to carrying the load, but he has remained consistent, averaging 26.2 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 8.7 assists this season.

3. Giannis Antetokounmpo

This reigning MVP and DPOY is still on a roll. He missed 6 games at the start of the month, and the Milwaukee Bucks struggled against their contenders. But, when Antetokounmpo returned, his team won 11 against the Atlanta Hawks. Safe to say that the Bucks need Antetokounmpo. He is averaging 28.5 points, 11.4 rebounds, and 6.0 assists. Moreover, this April, he had a 64.1 shooting percent, which shows how good he is.

4. Steph Curry


Curry has previously won the NBA MVP award. That’s why it comes as no surprise that he is one of the leading candidates for this season. He has shown his amazing range and high shooting percentage. Last April, he single-handedly boosted the Warriors’ offense by averaging 38.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 4.5 assists. Also, he is scoring at an efficient rate, which is 52.9 field goal percentage and 47.2 percent from deep.

5. Luka Doncic

This Dallas Mavericks player is the youngest MVP candidate this year. Although statistics show that his performance dropped in April, averaging 27.4 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 8.3 assists in 14 games, you can see the impact that Doncic has on his team if you watch any of their games. He helps carry the load, which is why the Mavericks are continuously rising the ranks.

This seems to be an exciting season for all basketball fans. These MVP candidates are showing performances that’ll definitely be attracting sports punters and brokers. That’s why it’s better for you to choose the best sports betting broker for your bets.
