If it wasn't for the small matter of Kevin Durant and LeBron James, Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin would be a huge contender for this years MVP honors.
Unfortunately for Griffin however, KD and King James play in their own stratosphere us mere mortals cannot comprehend and players like Blake have to settle for more meek awards.
