We’re going to be taking a look at the top ten MVP candidates in the NBA every other week. We’ll find out just how much can things change in a season and what players can remain dominant for a full 82 game schedule.
10. Dirk Nowitzki (Dallas Mavericks)
Wesley Matthews has been disappointing, Deron Williams has been inconsistent and Chandler Parsons is still recovering from injuries as he tries to get back on the court. Dirk Nowitzki is once again picking up the slack and has led the Dallas Mavericks to an 11-9 record. It’s amazing that he’s still putting the franchise on his back at his older age. Nowitzki is averaging 17.5 points on incredible percentages and keeping a depleted roster in position for a playoff spot.
