As the regular season draws to a close, the debate over who should win this season’s MVP is heating up.Recently, Sports Keeda expert Kunal Sethi wrote an article that listed the top five MVP candidates and sparked a lot of discussion among fans.No.5 tatum team record: 49-30 Individual stats: 27 PPG, 8 RPG, 4.4 APG, shooting 45.5 percent from the field, 35.1 percent from 3-point range The Green Jerseys were hurt in part by their lackluster start to the season, but even so, they surged to the top two in the Eastern Conference thanks to a stellar second half.Uduka has finally built a solid defensive team, and the forward duo has carried the team on offense.Tatum’s prolific offense and steady, efficient shooting ability were evident in the second half.As he pointed out to Embiid, he’s a long shot this season, but a contender for the award next season.4. East Cic (49-30) Personal stats: 28.3 PPG (9.1 RPG, 8.7 APG), shooting 45.6% from the field and 35.3% from the three-point line.Doncic is the soul of this team without a doubt.His offensive firepower, his playmaking ability, and perhaps Westbrook’s triple-double average make doncic’s numbers routine, but in terms of efficiency, the two are far from the same.Doncic is only 23 years old, and judging by current trends, it’s only a matter of time before he wins.No. 3 embiid team record: 48-30 Personal stats:Embiid is averaging 30.2 points, 11.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists while shooting 49.3 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from three-point range. There’s no doubt that embiid is having an MVP-caliber season.He deserves the MVP, but he doesn’t necessarily win it because he’s not the only one who’s had a similar performance this season.And in recent head-to-head meetings with direct rivals Jokic and Giannis Antetokounmpo, his team has failed to win.2. Jokic (47-32) Personal stats: 26.3 points, 11.5 rebounds and 7.9 assists per game, shooting 57.7 percent from the field and 34.2 percent from 3-point range, jokic has led the Nuggets to a top-six finish in the Western Conference despite the absence of two big men in porter Jr. and Murray.Like last season, Jokic has maintained his efficiency on the offensive end and is getting better and better on the defensive end.In addition, Jokic has some of the best advanced stats in history, and he has a good chance to win again this season.No. 1 giannis Antetokounmpo Record: 48-30Antetokounmpo is averaging 30.1 points, 11.6 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game. He’s shooting 55.6 percent from the field and 28.7 percent from 3-point range. He’s been effective on both ends of the floor in recent seasons.The Greek striker, who is not yet 28, still looks to be improving.Antetokounmpo is statistically as good as Jokic and Embiid, has a better record than Jokic, and is better than Embiid against each other.
