Kevin Durant wins MVP Award; Phoenix Suns Goran Dragic finishes 16th

New, comments

The Phoenix Suns have not had an MVP candidate since Steve Nash left town, but now have Goran Dragic joining the list in 2014.

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Goran Dragic had a great season for the resurgent Phoenix Suns. He won the Most Improved Player Award last week, and he was one of only three players in twenty years to finish a season with 20+ points, 5+ assists, 50+% field goal shooting and 41+% three-point shooting.

Dragic did not make the 2014 NBA All-Star Game, but he seems a lock for an All-NBA bid and now at least showed up on a list of the top 17 most valuable players in the NBA.
