Top NBA MVP Candidates

Why every NBA Candidate Might Win MVP

Top NBA MVP Candidates

The MVP race for the NBA is full of the usual candidates but for some strange reason, they are getting amazing numbers.

  • Russel Westbrook
  • The current favorite the leader and heart of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Faced with leading an average OKC team to the promise land a year after long-time teammate Kevin Durant flipped to the rival Warriors. Gaining a Triple-double almost every game is an incredible feat. The only question is can he keep up this pace?

  • Lebron James
  • The best player in the world. There really is nothing to add here. If LeBron is playing no MVP race can be true without him included in it. I want everyone to try to imagine the Cavs without Lebron... Yeah, Thats why he is always in the running.

  • James Harden
  • Arguably the best offensive star in basketball. Leading a really bad Houston team into the third spot in the West. Remove Harden from the lineup and it takes a hit. There is almost no player who ca match Harden’s offensive game. He can shoot a three with Steph Curry’s range. He can drive the ball as hard as James and earn a free-throw. Double him he will break both defenders and pop a shot in their face. An all-around offensive star.

  • Kevin Durant
  • Went from a most-beloved player in the NBA after he won this award back in 2014. His speech revolving around his mom and teammates consistent push of his abilities. Turned into a villain leaving the scrappy Thunder to go to the loaded warriors. He has kept the warriors as the best team in the West during Curry’s “down year”. His addition might finally conclude in a title. But will it win him the MVP?

Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

    This Hair Mask Is Like A 5-Minute Head Detox — It's The Best Thing I've Ever Put On My Dry Scalp

    It's perfect for anyone who's disguised their dandruff as snowflakes.


    - Like face masks, hair masks are a great way to do a more intense treatment that tackles more specific issues like dry strands or an itchy scalp.

    - I don't necessarily suffer from dandruff, but my scalp can get a little itchy post-workout and in the colder months.

    - I tried the Malin + Goetz Detox Scalp Mask and it was a game changer — my scalp felt cleaner, smoother, and more refreshed than ever in five quick minutes.

    - The mask is a go-to for a clean detox of my hair and scalp after I've put a lot of product in my hair or done a lot of styling to it.

    Like most self-proclaimed beauty guru and product junkie, I've been obsessed with my hair and hair products for decades. For me, the goal has always been to transform my dry, brittle strands into thick, shiny, and silky ones.

    For that reason, I've spent a lot of time (and money) on styling and heat products that have, at times, made my hair look great at the expense of excess product buildup and heat damage.

    How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

    Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


    When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

    LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

    Remember when thin eyebrows were in? Unfortunately, me too. If you've over-tweezed your eyebrows, you know how much of a painful and slow process it is to get them back to a "normal" shape — let alone trying to keep up with the newest trends that seem to come and go every other month.

    But, what does that look like nowadays? A defined, thicker brow which, I will admit, takes a lot of time and practice to perfect.

    As of October 19th, Drexel has 14 active cases (13 students and 1 employee). There has been a total of 113 cases in the Drexel community (104 students and 9 employees).

CofC just finished midterms and every student I know feels burned out. This is a very frustrating feeling and it feels like things will never return to the way they were. Remember to go easy on yourself and just do your best.
