Second in the west yezzirrrrrrrrrrrrrr CP3
OKC has won 19 of 21, and Durant just continues to coast while still putting up insane numbers. It's his to lose at this point.
Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.
I agree with you on the above but don't forget that OKC has had a very vanilla schedule so far this year while LAC has beaten SAS twice, MIA, and basically every other elite team they put in front of them.
OKC has been amazing, but they have not just Durant but another top 10 player in Russell Westbrook, a top 20-25 player in Serge Ibaka, one of the best man defenders in the league in Thabo, sixth man candidate Kevin Martin and other greats.
LAC has similar depth but not to the individual talent extent of OKC (Blake is not a top tier player yet) which puts the emphasis on how much better CP3 has made everyone around him in where they currently reside in the standings.
2. CP3 (very close)
Blake is absolutely in Westbrook's tier. 2nd tier superstars. Bledsoe is their Sefalosha equivalent and clearly better overall, Deandre is their Serge (Ibaka passed him overall, but his defense is highly overrated by some) and Crawford equals OKC's Martin. There's absolutely no sympathy vote for the Clips on a team argument versus the Thunder or anyone else. Which would mean he would have to have been individually better than KD. I love Cp3, but there is no case that this is true. I'll challenge you to make it though.
In the end, this looks like it may come down to CP3 or Durant whoever finishes with the top spot out west. With the Clippers 11 game winning streak going on they are 2nd out west now.

Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.
I really hope Paul gets an MVP in his career. If this is his best shot, that I'm rooting for him.
He's certainly in the discussion. Still not enough separates LeBron, Melo, KD and him though.
Kobe's got no shot, despite playing his best individual ball in a long time. Even if the Lakers turn it around drastically, he probably won't get the credit needed.
this my sig
:cry:muy vote goes to colbe brian he can do it all in the world best basketball evr
Dwight Howard is a wanker for pushing Melo down!!!!!

Meanwhile, Blake is a second tier superstar at best. He has gotten better but the guy can't hit a free throw, still doesn't have a consistent midrange game and is basically Amare 2.0 (early Suns version before the Spurs playoff matchup where he blew up). He's an all-star but he's barely a top 15-20 player.
Ibaka is a borderline all-star if he got a few more opportunities and in my opinion is the best role player in the league by far. Meanwhile, Deandre, can't hit a free throw, isn't anywhere the shot blocker that Ibaka is and is no where near as talented.
Crawford is better then Martin, no contest.
Bledsoe is overall better then Thabo, I agree.
The Clippers are a deeper team in terms of talent but OKC is by far better in terms of top heavy talent no question. CP3 has depth around him but he doesn't have the kind of surrounding talent that Durant does.
