After a slow start and some unreal expectations, Doncic is back to dominating. Just ask the Raptors. This was the year he was supposed to win the MVP and lift Dallas back into Finals contention.

Though only 22 years old, Luka isn’t a kid anymore. His warts should be taken into consideration, but that doesn’t detract from the fact that he’s one of the most singularly skilled players ever. He’s still nearly averaging a triple-double while shouldering an insane load.
Luka’s 2021-22 season hasn’t been as dominant as some Luka for MVP bettors may have hoped, but he’s still one of the best in the world and worthy of the No. 2 spot on this list.
NBA Power Rankings: Steph Curry is still up top.

Fred VanVleet has some big names to pass if he wants to gun for a spot in the top three.
