The weekly SB Nation NBA MVP Power Rankings by Tom Ziller are out once again, and as expected the Denver Nuggets do not have a single candidate in the top 10 or even in consideration. As we've seen throughout the first month of the season, the Nuggets aren't going to have a single player take the team on his shoulders for the entire season. There's a new key player every game. Maybe it's Andre Miller filling in for an injured Arron Afflalo or Ty Lawson. Or It's Danilo Gallinari scoring 37 points in a double-overtime victory over the Knicks.
But the Nuggets are playing in a division that has two players on this list. Kevin Durant checks in at No. 3, falling a spot from last week's No. 2 ranking, while Russell Westbrook moved from unranked to No. 10. The two teams will play each other for the first time this season on Feb. 19.
