NBA MVP Rankings: Add Isaiah Thomas to the race

One of the NBA’s closest and most interesting MVP races in some time has tightened since my previous running ballot for the award.

Last time around, I had James Harden at No. 1 followed by Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, Isaiah Thomas and then Kawhi Leonard. In this incarnation LeBron has dropped, Thomas has skyrocketed and the race for the No. 1 spot has grown too tight to call.

For me, at least, the first three players on my ballot are just too close to call. And no — LeBron isn’t in the mix for the top spot anymore, at least not now.

Let’s kick off with the three guys tied for No. 1 on the ballot, in no particular order:

T-1) James Harden SG / Houston Rockets
