The NBA's MVP race has been one of the most interesting narratives of the 2013-14 season with Kevin Durant and LeBron James both showing why they should be viewed as the best in the league.

However, the race is now over according to LA Lakers legend Magic Johnson. The 54-year old who is now involved in the LA Dodger ownership group thinks Durant has already done enough to deserve the crown.

Johnson tweeted yesterday: "Kevin Durant scoring 51 points tonight sealed the deal on the NBA MVP race...Kevin Durant's game winning 3point shot proved to us that he is the MVP."

LeBron James has won the award four times in the last five years, only interrupted by Derrick Rose's win during the 2010-11 season.

However, Durant has averaged 32.2 points per game during this season and has also averaged seven rebounds and five assists as the Oklahoma City Thunder lifted themselves to second place in the Western Conference.

James does still have 14 regular season games in which to prove that he is still the most dominant player in the league but the majority of analysts have been impressed with the rise of Durant in a season where the Thunder had to endure a long stretch without Russell Westbrook.

Who do you think should be the MVP? Let us know in the comments.
