Kemba Walker NBA MVP Odds

Note: This snippet is from Matt Moore’s larger MVP piece. See his analysis for all major candidate here. Odds as of Thursday, October 17.

There’s a gap after Philly and Milwaukee for the third-best team in the East. Some think Boston, some think Orlando, some think Miami, some think Toronto.

Let’s say it’s Boston, and let’s say that either Philly or Milwaukee suffer one of those “seasons from hell” with regards to injury and bad luck. Nothing goes right.

This opens the door for the Celtics to sneak up there. Let’s say they win 50 games after last year’s poor showing, finish second in the East and Kemba does what I described with Lillard above, getting to 27-28 points per game along with seven assists (which would be a career-high).

That probably gets him in the conversation if no one else has really separated themselves. At 100-1 for a player of his caliber with this kind of stage for the first time, it’s not bad for the longshot option.
