NBA MVP 2012 Power Rankings: Nuggets Miss Out In Latest SB Nation Set

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.
