NBA MVP Poll Poll: 2014-15 NBA MVP

  • Date:
    Apr 15, 2015

This year's race for NBA Most Valuable Player has seemingly come down to five players. Each with a tremendous season. Each with FIBA and Olympic gold medals as members of USA Basketball.

At the end of the day, each has a legitimate case for taking home the award. Here we lay out each players stats and give you a highlight-reel look at their best on-court performances. So whether you're looking for a record-breaking year that ends with the player's team holding the first-overall seed, or you prefer your player to bag as many triple doubles as Magic in his heyday, there's a candidate worthy of your vote below - in alphabetical order, of course!

Stephen Curry - Guard - Golden State Warriors

  • Per Game: 24.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 2.0 steals
  • Player Efficiency Rating: 28.13 (3rd Overall)

Curry not only broke his own record for three-points made in one NBA season, his Warriors are the class of the NBA with the league's best record.

Anthony Davis - Forward/Center - New Orleans Pelicans

  • Per Game: 24.3 points, 10.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.5 steals, 2.9 blocks
  • Player Efficiency Rating: 30.86 (1st Overall)

At just 22-years old, the best is still to come for Davis, a downright scary thought for teams around the league.

James Harden - Guard - Houston Rockets

  • Per Game: 27.5 points, 5.6 rebounds, 6.9 assists, 1.9 steals
  • Player Efficiency Rating: 26.77 (5th Overall)

Out of the shadow and into the spotlight, Harden has become the leader and face (beard?) of the Houston Rockets franchise.

LeBron James - Guard/Forward - Cleveland Cavaliers

  • Per Game: 25.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.6 steals
  • Player Efficiency Rating: 25.89 (8th Overall)

At what point does greatness become expected? And therefore under- or completely un-appreciated?

Russell Westbrook - Guard - Oklahoma City Thunder

  • Per Game: 27.9 points, 7.2 rebounds, 8.6 assists, 2.1 steals
  • Player Efficiency Rating: 28.83 (2rd Overall)

Not a dent in his face, an annoying mask or a collection of devastating injuries to his teammates could slow down Westbrook.
