MVP Kevin Durant

Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant  took home his first most valuable player award, an honor that is very deserving for the caliber of play Durant has displayed this season.

Durant averaged 32 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assist this season.  He even collected 119 first place votes. Who was second you ask? LeBron James with a laughable 6 votes.

Durant is currently in the midst of a 2-round duel against the Los Angeles Clippers.  Donald Sterlings slaves team stole Game One in a blowout, but Game 2 was Durant’s night  to shine.

Before a packed  house  at  the Chesapeake Energy Arena Durant  was awarded  the MVP, then showed the world why he’s the best in the NBA.   He put up 32 points, pulled down 12 rebounds, and handed out 9 assist; and to top that off he gave Clippers boss Negro head coach Doc Rivers nightmares. Rivers  now has to come up with a plan to slow Durant down. Good luck with that!

Durant is poised to win the NBA championship  this year–anything else would be a complete failure–and if you tweet Durant I’m sure he would tell you the same thing. But winning the Most Valuable  Player  Award is a great accomplishment. Durant is the best this year and he can really quiet the haters by knocking off LeBron James and the Heat this June. This was something he failed to do in the 2012 finals.

That is Durant’s true test — how he fairs against LeBron and can he knock King James off of the NBA pedestal as the game’s greatest player.  Hopefully we get that chance to see the league’s best go toe-to-toe  for the ring and to see If Durant has made that true jump to the number spot.
