Durant helped the Thunder to a 13-4 (.765) record and a four-game cushion in the Northwest Division. Durant ranked second overall in scoring (26.5 ppg) while shooting .510 from the field, .433 from behind the three-point line and .893 from the charity stripe. Additionally, Durant contributed 8.8 rpg, 4.4 apg and 1.65 bpg. He recorded his first career triple-double -- 25 points, 13 rebounds and a career-high 10 assists -- in a 119-109 win over Golden State on Nov. 18.

I think that about says it all. Kevin Durant is dominating the Western Conference, and he definitely deserves it. No one else is nearly as successful on a successful team. But, of course, the big question is whether he has the steam to take the award from Mr. James down in Miami.

Also, it's worth noting that while his points per game are down, he's having the best year of his career in terms of rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, and every imaginable shooting percentage.
