After a win Friday night over Portland, Nets superstar Kevin Durant was asked who he believes is the league’s Most Valuable Player, and he said he would cast his vote for Joel Embiid.
“If I had to take a guess, I would go between Joel Embiid, DeMar DeRozan, and Ja Morant for me,” Durant said.
“Those are my top three, and I’d probably go Joel. (Nikola) Jokic, you could throw Jokic in there, but I’d probably go Joel.”
"Joel Embiid, DeMar DeRozan, Ja Morant for me, those are my top three [for MVP] and I'll probably go Joel. Jokic, you can throw throw Jokic in there. But I'll probably go Joel."
