Who do you think is the NBA's most valuable player?
Remember, this is for the regular season, so disregard the first round of the playoffs.
That can be hard to do on the heels of the Los Angeles Clippers getting pummeled by the San Antonio Spurs.
The candidates are: Chris Paul of the Clippers, who finished third in the extremely competitive Western Conference; Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, the best team in the league; Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder, who missed the playoffs by one game; James Harden of the Houston Rockets, another top-tier team in the West; and LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers, a favorite to win the Eastern Conference title.
