1. Miami Heat (40-14)
It’s really a testament to LeBron’s sustained excellence that he won’t win the MVP trophy again this season. Like Jordan didn’t win it every season he played, LeBron won’t either thanks to voter fatigue.
2. Indiana Pacers (42-13)
I’m staying firmly on the fence regarding the Turner-for-Granger swap. Turner adds some bench scoring but there’s a risk he was putting up numbers on a bad team. Feel for Granger, who worked hard and was essentially punted to the roadside.
