After missing almost 2 calendar years due to a torn achilles injury, Durant is looking in a great touch. In fact, many believe he has somehow got even better after the injury. While leading the Nets to an NBA Championship is the biggest goal for him, he might have eye on another trophy this season.
Can Kevin Durant win the second MVP of his career?
So far, the Slim Reaper is averaging 30.6 points per game this season. Additionally, in the absence of Kyrie Irving a few days ago, he made sure the team didn’t slack off. As a result, the Nets are now 9-6 the season.
But can Durant really bag another MVP trophy? Well, if he continues his current form, there are no doubts that he will be a front-runner in the MVP race. He recently won the Eastern Conference Player of the Week award as well.
