Kobe Bryant’s Odds To Win NBA MVP Next Season
[new_royalslider id=”298″]

After 18 seasons in the NBA, the future remains uncertain for superstar Kobe Bryant. The Los Angeles Lakers showed their dedication to the face of the franchise by signing the perennial All-Star to a lucrative two-year contract extension, but many believe it was a bad deal that could potentially impact the future of the franchise.

Although the team and future Hall of Famer have been highly criticized for the extension, Kobe and company are confident he’s got something left in the tank. Kobe will attempt to prove all his doubters wrong in his final two years in Los Angeles while the team rebuilds.

Unfortunately, after two disappointing seasons that ended with serious injuries, Kobe is no longer considered a legitimate NBA MVP candidate.

According to Sportsbook.com, Kobe’s odds to win NBA MVP are 60/1.

It’s not all that surprising that Kobe would be given these odds considering the elite players ahead of him.

As usual, LeBron James is the favorite to win MVP honors at 8/5 with the reigning MVP right behind him in Kevin Durant (3/1). Rounding out the top five candidates for next season’s MVP are Blake Griffin and Chris Paul tied at 15/1 and Carmelo Anthony at 20/1.

Rookie Julius Randle is the only other player on the Lakers roster with a prop bet on Sportsbook for Rookie of the Year. Head coach Byron Scott also has a prop bet for Coach of the Year and is considered a long shot.
