As the 2014-15 NBA regular season comes to an end, there’s still one lingering question, who is going to be this years Most Valuable Player? In previous NBA MVP races, there have been two likely winners, in other years there’s often one unanimous winner. This MVP race, however, is much too close to call. This year’s candidates for the NBA’s most prestigious individual award are Stephen Curry, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Lebron James, and Anthony Davis, and you can make a valid argument for each player, as to why they should be named this year’s MVP.

Should it be Stephen Curry, since his Golden State Warriors have the best record in the league, or should it be James Harden for carrying his Rockets without Dwight Howard? LeBron left South Beach for a second stint with Cleveland, and his Cavaliers sit comfortably as the Eastern Conference’s #2 seed, hoping to make a championship run in the playoffs, while the Heat–just one year removed from an NBA Finals appearance–need a miracle just to play postseason basketball this time around. Davis and Westbrook are the two fringe candidates, and one of their hopes will coming crashing down within a week, considering only one of their teams will sneak into the Western Conference playoffs as the #8 seed. Though they’ve both enjoyed ridiculous years statistically, whoever’s team is left out of the playoffs will have to watch their name will be pulled from MVP consideration, as there has never been an MVP whose team did not make the playoffs.

We’ve built a case for why each player has a real case to win this year’s 2014-15 NBA MVP award. Let us know if you agree or disagree.
