After missing almost two calendar years due to a torn Achilles injury, Durant still seems to be in great touch. In fact, many believe he has somehow got even better after the injury.

So far, the Slim Reaper is averaging 30.6 points per game this season. Additionally, in the absence of Kyrie Irving a few days ago, he made sure the team didn’t slack off. As a result, the Nets are now 9-6 the season.

But can Durant really bag another MVP trophy? Well, if he continues his current form, there are no doubts that he will be a front-runner in the MVP race. He recently won the Eastern Conference Player of the Week award as well.
