As the 2021-22 NBA season heads into Thanksgiving week, Golden State Warriors fans have plenty to be thankful for. Much to the dismay of the rest of the league, the Warriors are looking like title contenders again behind odds-on MVP favorite Stephen Curry. And they might get even better as the season goes on.

The point guard is now +200 to win the award, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetkounmpo clock in at second (+500) and third (+700) respectively as they lead their teams in the East. Nikola Jokic has battled some injuries but remains within striking distance at +850. Luka Doncic, Jimmy Butler and Joel Embiid likely round out the candidates worth discussing at the moment.

Curry already bested Durant last week when the Warriors trounced the Nets. The point guard isn’t quite at 50-40-90 splits but is averaging 29.5 points, 6.5 assists and 6.1 rebounds entering Golden State’s Sunday contest. That rebounding number will be a career high. At the moment, the Warriors are the best team in the league and Curry is their best player. It’s easy to see why he’s the MVP favorite, with everyone else playing catch-up after five weeks.
