Kobe Bryant Long Shot For NBAs MVP Title

The National Basketball Association’s about to get back underway and while everyone pays close attention to LeBron James’ new super team in Cleveland it’s also good to look at future Hall of Fame guard Kobe Bryant. Kobe’s back after a season riddled with injuries, but his chances of being a big factor, or his team for that matter, are very slim.

Bovada reports that Bryant’s currently 11th on the MVP betting list at 30-1, while LeBron James is the clear cut favorite at 5-6 after Kevin Durant’s got injured. Durant’s missing out on at least six weeks of play, but it’s not unthinkable he’ll miss several months with a broken foot.

Los Angeles forward Blake Griffin comes in at 12-1 followed by Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook (15-1), Chris Paul (16-1) and Carmelo Anthony (22-1). Bryant’s team not being very competitive is a big factor when talking about to win this year’s MVP.

With Durant dropping significantly on the list his odds might be the best right now, as the majority of the MVP voters will make up their mind of what happens in the months leading up to the playoffs, a period when Durant should be fully healthy.

Other players that can be considered as MVP candidate include New Orleans Pelicans’ center Anthony Davis (25-1), James Harden from the Houston Rockets (28-1) and Golden State Warrior Steph Curry (28-1).
