Colin Cowherd Ranks the Ten Most Valuable Players Left in the NBA Playoffs

Watch Colin Cowherd count down his rankings of the top 10 most valuable players remaining in the NBA Playoffs.

Here is Colin’s list as follows:

10. Draymond Green

9. Jimmy Butler

8. Devin Booker

7. Luka Doncic

6. Ja Morant

5. Jayson Tatum

4. Steph Curry

3. Joel Embiid

2. Chris Paul

1. Giannis Antetokounmpo

Most Notable Takes:

“Because you can get the mid-range game and the down-low scoring I would say Joel Embiid at #3. I do worry about sustainability long-term but he’s giving you 30 and 10 in playoff games. He can be a force inside, he can be an intimidator, he can pull up and give you a jumper – he’s the closest thing to Shaq in the league. He is a powerful force on both ends and a rim protector.”
“Chris Paul leads every single playoff player in fourth-quarter scoring. The narrative is that he’s not clutch, but he’s actually the most clutch player in the playoffs in the fourth quarter the last couple of years. Blame some of his struggles on Blake, Doc Rivers, or James Harden, don’t blame him. He’s 9-1 for his career against Luka. He not only dominated in the fourth but he went after Luka and he attacked Luka.”
“Giannis is the best player in the game and I’ve felt that since the end of last year, and many even thought it three years ago. He would be my MVP. Khris Middleton got hurt and in the games he got hurt they had five blowout wins. Best defensive player at any moment in the league, most dominating closer at the offensive end, and he is now, with increased ball-handling over the last several years, a facilitator whose assists are going up.”
