One of the NBA’s closest and most interesting MVP races in some time has tightened since my previous running ballot for the award.

Last time around, I had James Harden at No. 1 followed by Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, Isaiah Thomas and then Kawhi Leonard. In this incarnation LeBron has dropped, Thomas has skyrocketed and the race for the No. 1 spot has grown too tight to call.

For me, at least, the first three players on my ballot are just too close to call. And no — LeBron isn’t in the mix for the top spot anymore, at least not now.

Let’s kick off with the three guys tied for No. 1 on the ballot, in no particular order:

T-1) James Harden SG / Houston Rockets
