The Nets lost in the second round of the playoffs last spring to eventual champion Milwaukee Bucks to conclude an injury-riddled season for Durant and Big-3 brethren James Harden and Kyrie Irving. They were followed in the polling of 30 GMs by the Lakers (17 percent) and the Bucks (10 percent) to win the title.

Durant received 37 percent of the MVP vote, followed by Dallas’ Luka Doncic (33%) and Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo (13%).
