Basketball fans, we're ranking the best current NBA players who are most likely to win the 2017-2018 NBA Most Valuable Player Award. The players most likely to win the MVP Award consists of superstars, rising stars, legendary scorers, and players on new teams. These potential MVPs in the voting race for this season are judged on scoring, stats, and how much their team depends on them. Who do you think will be the 2018 NBA MVP? 

Past MVP winners in NBA history, like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, and 2017 MVP Russell Westbrook, are current favorites to win the 2018 MVP Award. However, these All-Stars and future Hall of Famers should expect competition from Kawhi Leonard, James Harden, and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Other good MVP sleepers include John Wall, Paul George, Anthony Davis, and Carmelo Anthony.
