The Final Four of MVPs is a talented pool, but only one king can reign.
East Region: Carmelo Anthony (5 percent chance of title)
The knee injury was an issue. Apparently, it’s not anymore.
Anthony, who recently missed six of eight games with a right knee injury, says he's no longer thinking about the knee. Ian Begley of ESPN NewYork quoted the New York Knicks star as saying, "I feel good...Now I'm just playing ball at this point."
Anthony's scoring average of 27.4 points is the highest since his 28.2-point average in 2009-10. The scorer's rebounding and assists are down, despite starting strong, and the hype of the "wow, he's playing defense now" has also fallen off.
The Knicks may have hit their peak in the first half of the season, but they’re still a top team in the Eastern Conference.
West Region: Kobe Bryant (5 percent chance of title)
The Lakers are no longer the worst thing since Ron Artest’s name change.
But the only reason they have been able to bound into the postseason is because of the year-long spectacular play of Bryant.
He's averaging 27.1 points, 5.8 assists and 5.4 rebounds. He's not taking on too much, either, as he's been an efficient 46.8 percent and his three-point percentage is up from recent seasons to 33.9 percent.
Plus, he’s embraced Twitter this year.
Midwest Region: Kevin Durant (10 percent chance of title)
Oklahoma City is right on the border of the South and Midwest, but there was no way giving Durant a No. 2 seed.
Durant is as elite of a scorer as they come, and his incredible ability to score from anywhere on the floor remains astonishing.
Durant is the league's leading scorer, plays the most minutes and performs at an all-around elite level, as he's third in the league in triple-doubles. His player efficiency rating of 28.01 is second-best in the league.
South Region: LeBron James (80 percent chance of title)
James will go down as one of the game’s all-time greats, and we could be witnessing the greatest season of James’ career.
He also might just be hitting his stride. Imagine if he still hasn't touched that ceiling.
He now gets that elbow in on his shot and is a greater threat from the perimeter. James can turn it on whenever he wants, and his PER is the highest in the league at 30.96.
Finals: James over Durant
While the game started neck-and-neck, James went on a long run and his Miami Heat win streak wraps up the award.
