The Oklahoma City Thunder have tentatively scheduled a press conference Tuesday, and ESPN reports that that's because Kevin Durant will be receiving the 2014 NBA MVP award.

This should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone. Durant has been the odds-on favorite since the early season and pulled away at several points. He averaged 32 points on 50 percent shooting, along with 7.4 rebounds, 5.5 assist and 1.3 steals. He finished with a 29.8 PER. So yeah, he was pretty good.

It will be Durant's first MVP award, and breaks LeBron James' streak of back-to-back awards. James is widely expected to finish second in voting. It would not be surprising if Durant was the unanimous first-place vote-getter.
