Race to the NBL 2015/16 Most Valuable Player

Such as it was last season, the troops at The Pick and Roll analyse each and every NBL encounter to (try and) determine the outcome of the league's Most Valuable Player award before it is officially announced.

However, in truth, the main purpose of this is to compare and discuss - just how close to the mark are we (or compared to how close you are, to us)?

In the exact same way as the 2014/15 NBL season, at the conclusion of each game, a 3-2-1 voting system is handed out to the three best players. The final vote count (after the opening 10 rounds) can be found at the conclusion of the article.

So here we are, ten rounds in to the 'revamped' NBL. Chris Goulding, Corey Webster, AJ Ogilvy, Jerome Randle, among many others are leading the charge in multiple MVP races across the nation amongst various media outlets.

Time to find out who we have on top just after the half way mark!
