During the 2012 NBA preseason, Kevin Durant appeared to be the only true 2013 MVP contender aside from the reigning MVP himself, LeBron James.

With the 2012-13 regular season now in full motion, it's become clear that the MVP won't be only a two-man race this time around.

In the early goings of the 2012-13 regular season, we've also seen an uber-efficient Kobe Bryant, one of the most memorable debuts on a new team in recent history from James Harden and plenty of MVP-caliber play from the point guard position.
