The OKC Thunder were very close to having three Most Valuable Players in 11 years.

Kevin Durant collected the first Most Valuable Player the OKC Thunder franchise history. The year following KD’s departure and after averaging a triple-double, his first time for a full season, Russell Westbrook took home MVP honors as well.

And then this season Paul George almost became the third OKC Thunder player to accomplish the feat. Unfortunately, his injuries led to him finishing third in the Most Valuable Player race, behind Giannis Antentekoumpo and James Harden.

PG13 had a career year in his final season in Oklahoma City. George averaged 28 points per contests averaging 43 percent from the floor and 38 percent from deep. PG also had a career-high eight rebounds and a career-high four assists a game to go along with his career-high two steals per matchup. George also averaged 21 shot attempts per game, another career high for him.
