Lebron and Steph are great, but I don't think either belongs in the MVP discussion this year. Every argument for Lebron, as far as how dynamic his game is, applies just as much to Kawhi this season and Kawhi is the better defender.
Really, it's Westbrook, Harden and everyone else. I don't think Thomas and Antetokounmpo are getting near enough credit. Antetokounmpo improved in virtually every category and led his (playoff) team in points, rebounds, assists, blocks and steals. They were 22-29 with Jabari Parker and 20-11 without him.
