Westbrook believes George’s consistency should give him the edge over the rest of the field, per ESPN’s Royce Young:
“I mean we are tied, maybe third seed, whatever, but the way he’s playing consistent. The one thing I always continue to pride myself on is being consistent. And this year, in my opinion, P has been very consistent. To be able to do the same thing every night is not easy to do. It’s something that I don’t take for granted. I think a lot of people around the world that don’t play basketball, that don’t play sports, don’t understand what it takes to be consistent and get your mind right every night to be able to do something, so for him to do that and stay on the path to do that, he’s definitely the front runner for my MVP.”
That’s high praise coming from a former MVP.
