Big Diesel, the TNT analyst and a great player critic who himself is a Hall of famer for NBA while previewing the game of Golden State Warriors and Phoenix Suns said: “Right now he is the clear favourite for the MVP. Crystal clear.” Shaq didn’t hold back his prediction today even when the Warriors lost to Suns and Stephen Curry had one of the worst night of his career where he had 12 points, 2 assists and 3 rebounds while playing for 36 minutes.

The performance by the Chef today really didn’t make any changes in his ranking for the MVP race. Steph is still over Kevin Durant , Jimmy Buttler, Giannis Antetokunmpo and Nikola Jokic at first place and if the season ended today Curry would be earning his third MVP joining many elite clubs with big names and be a part of the GOAT conversation since he is leading the warriors back to claim the dynasty spot.
