4. LeBron James Wins the MVP
This is a direct effect of everything that we mentioned in that last part, about the Thunder taking a step back now that All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook is back in the lineup.

That’s where James comes into play, as he has openly admitted that he is pushed each night by what Durant does on the court. With the Heat trying to win its third-straight title, James will tighten the screws on things and elevate his game to an even higher level to not only potentially overtake the Pacers atop the East standings, but also earn his third-straight league MVP.
