Updated 2012-13 NBA MVP Odds: Top Contenders for the Coveted Award
Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

If LeBron James thought retaining his MVP award would be a cakewalk in 2012-13, the first few weeks of the season have proven that it'll be anything but that.

With the Los Angeles Lakers' ship somewhat righted, the New York Knicks off to a scintillating 8-1 start, and several other teams leading their respective divisions, there's no shortage of MVP candidates to date.

It's too early to count any team out of the playoff race (well, besides maybe the Washington Wizards), but keep in mind that it's highly unlikely that the league MVP will come from lottery team.

If players like Kyrie Irving and James Harden want to stay in the thick of the race, they're going to need to get on the right side of .500, and quick. 

With Thanksgiving nearly upon us, let's take a look at how the NBA's MVP race is shaking up.
