NBA MVP Race: Ja Morant’s Odds To Win MVP in Year Three

Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies are making an arrival, and they’re doing it way ahead of schedule. In his third year, Morant is drawing comparisons to Derrick Rose in the sense of him arriving at an MVP caliber level in year three. 

Morant – who will draw interest for the Most Improved Player award – has breached his way into the MVP conversation.

The third-year guard has been underrated throughout his basketball journey and is proving everyone who doubted him wrong. Morant averages 27.5 PPG, 5.8 RPG and 6.7 APG on 49.5% shooting. 

While his averages took a leap, and his on-court play has taken a leap, the Grizzlies' success may be the most impressive of his MVP case.

It’s known that Morant is a good leader for the squad and the players respect him, and that shows on the court. The Morant-led Grizzlies are half of a game ahead of the Stephen Curry-led Golden State Warriors. At 45-22 on the season, the Grizzlies hold the second seed in the Western Conference. 

If Morant doesn’t win this MVP, there’s no doubt he will be in the conversation again for years to come.
