After 18 seasons in the NBA, the future remains uncertain for superstar Kobe Bryant. The Los Angeles Lakers showed their dedication to the face of the franchise by signing the perennial All-Star to a lucrative two-year contract extension, but many believe it was a bad deal that could potentially impact the future of the franchise.
Although the team and future Hall of Famer have been highly criticized for the extension, Kobe and company are confident he’s got something left in the tank. Kobe will attempt to prove all his doubters wrong in his final two years in Los Angeles while the team rebuilds.
According to Sportsbook.com, Kobe’s odds to win NBA MVP are 60/1.
It’s not all that surprising that Kobe would be given these odds considering the elite players ahead of him.
As usual, LeBron James is the favorite to win MVP honors at 8/5 with the reigning MVP right behind him in Kevin Durant (3/1). Rounding out the top five candidates for next season’s MVP are Blake Griffin and Chris Paul tied at 15/1 and Carmelo Anthony at 20/1.
依序排列出下一季NBA年度最佳球員的機率前五名，一如往常的 LeBron James又被視為了年度最佳球員的熱門人選，賠率為1.6，在他之後的則是上屆的年度最佳球員 Kevin Durant的賠率為3，第三跟第四的球員分別是 Blake Griffin 和Chris Paul，賠率皆為十五，第五則是Carmelo Anthony的二十(5%)。
