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.

The Nets are missing their best player in Kevin Durant. That drastically reduces their ceiling. Even if they outperform expectations, that ceiling only barely scrapes 50 in most reasonable circumstances.

Combined with his baggage from last season’s Celtics, his knee and face issues (he suffers a lot of face injuries for some reason), it’s tough to find a narrative that befits him.

Next season? Maybe, if he carries the team in the event Durant doesn’t come back 100%. But not this year.
