Most Valuable Player
The Most Valuable Player award is given to the NBA player whose play exceeds all others and can be considered as the best NBA player that season. The MVP award has been highly debated the past couple of seasons.
Now, if MVP actually meant “most valuable” player, LeBron James has a great chance of winning each season due to his role and how his impact on the court is the main reason for his team’s success.

The Brooklyn Nets currently have no player on their roster that has a legitimate chance at the award. This is due to their chances of winning in 2018-19 and the talent on the team. The Nets are a young team filled with talent.
Brooklyn is focused on rebuilding their team and showing signs of winning. The Nets are not projected to make the 2018-19 playoffs with the roster and competition for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
If a player had to be named that is best suited for the award, it would be D’Angelo Russell. It is almost certain Russell will not get the award, but if he can lead the Brooklyn Nets to the playoffs and have a really great season, then Nets fans can start to dream.
Russell is expected to have a breakout season in 2018-19. In order for him to reach MVP conversation, he will have to nearly double all of his stats and lead the Nets to the playoffs. This means Russell would have to average close to 30 points and 10 assists per game.
With that said, the Brooklyn Nets do not have a realistic candidate for the Most Valuable Player award, but their closest bet is D’Angelo Russell.
Expect Russell to have a career year in 2018-19. The Nets point guard has worked hard this off-season not just on his game, but on his body. Russell has gained more muscle, which will play a big role in his driving game.
The Brooklyn Nets open their season on Oct. 17 away against the Detroit Pistons. Russell is expected to be the Nets starting point guard for the season opener.
