Predicting the Next Wave of NBA MVP Candidates

Tomorrow is in good hands.

Contrary to what many of us may hope, current NBA superstars won't be around forever. They are rich and they are famous, but they are also mortal.

It stinks, I know. The thought of watching anyone other than LeBron James and Kevin Durant duke it out for league MVP honors feels wrong—interesting, yet wrong. 

Lucky for us, though, James and Durant aren't going anywhere anytime soon. But they won't be standing alone on the mountaintop for much longer, either.

At some point, it's going to be more than James and Durant and then everyone else. There will come a time when others legitimately challenge them, when they are not the NBA's two most valuable players.

That time isn't here yet, as we saw only this season, but it is coming. And it's coming soon.

Whip out those crystal balls of yours and come peer into the NBA of tomorrow with me, won't you?
