NBA QUARTER-MARK AWARDS
Kevin Durant for MVP? The three-time scoring champ has the Thunder off to a scintillating start in the Western Conference (17--4 through Sunday) despite the preseason departure of 2012 Sixth Man of the Year James Harden, who prompted a trade from Oklahoma City in October in favor of bigger riches with the Rockets.
