Predicting the 2017-18 MVP: The case for Kemba Walker

In terms of the usual criteria required of an MVP, Walker might be able to make a better case for the award than a handful of stars, including Paul George and Kyrie Irving.

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Kyrie Irving put up 16 points and 10 assists with some highlight-worthy sequences as the Boston Celtics wrapped up a 4-0 preseason with a 108-100 win over the Charlotte Hornets. The Celtics were plus-22 over 27 minutes with Irving and Al Horford (15 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists) on the floor. Boston shot 50.6 percent from the floor and 50 percent beyond the 3-point arc.
