NBA MVP Odds: Can LeBron James Hold off Kevin Durant, Chris Paul?
Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The race for 2013 NBA MVP has only heated up in the month of January.

More and more, it's appearing to come down to a three-man race between the reigning MVP, LeBron James, the three-time reigning scoring champion, Kevin Durant, and the best point guard in the world, Chris Paul.

Other fringe candidates (Carmelo Anthony, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker) lurk as challengers in case one of the top three get injured in the second half of the season. Barring injury, however, it'll be an uphill battle for anyone not named James, Durant or Paul to end the season as MVP.

Can James hold off Durant and Paul and win his fourth league MVP? Or will voters be in the mood to recognize a new star with the hardware?

Let's find out where the top 10 candidates stand this week.
