    Melo or Paul. I think it's gonna be hard for OKC to do better than last year, so for KD to win it he's going to have to have an unreal season. I can't see him having a season so clearly better than LeBron, or even some others.

    Melo and Paul play on teams that can improve, and Melo especially has the most room for individual growth. Melo also is more clearly the best player on his team.

    If the Clippers jump from the 5th seed to the top 1-2, and Paul continues to be a top 3-4 player, he's got a great chance. If the Knicks make a similar jump and Melo continues to shed some of the stigmas on him, he'll have a great chance too.


    Kobe is interesting, because he's playing amazingly well - better than he has in a while - but his team is struggling and had HUGE expectations. No matter how great he is, if his team doesn't succeed, he won't win. The MVP is all about stories a lot of the time, unless there is a clear best player.

    Doesn't matter we are talking about this year. Who are you to say he can't keep it up. GO back to bashing Wade.

    Everyone has the same sample size. Stop using dumb arguments please.

    Comparing Lin to Rubio is like comparing Kate Upton to Rosie O' Donnell. They're both on TV, but that's where the comparison ends.

    CP3 is the only one who has a shot the clippers have to be number 1 in the west.

    But at end of the day Lebron is not even trying and he is getting almost a triple double every night.

    No way on earth it goes to Dwight, and probably not Kobe. Durant makes sense, he has been on the cusp a few years. Melo right now is in the mix. Harden's team will be in the lottery most likely, no chance for him. Paul has a chance if the Clips get a top 2 seed as well.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    But its LeBron's to lose. He is playing on a different level then any other player in the NBA right now.

    I'd say Carmelo because he is the leader of the Knicks and if they perform like how they should, he should be a finalist in the MVP talk.

    Kobe is having a phenomenal year but the Lakers aren't performing too well. Durant is always a finalist but the Thunder do not seem like their old dominant self this year which will hurt him. Harden would be a nice pick but I don't see him winning, unless the Rocket do really well (6th seed or higher). I feel if they squeak into the playoffs, he won't get enough.

    CP3 is also a fantastic choice. I can see him winning it. Also don't sleep on Zach Randolph, especially with the way Memphis has played so far.

    Right now I'd say the top 5 likely to win after Lebron would be, in no particular order.

    1. Carmelo Anthony
    2. Chris Paul
    3. Zach Randolph
    4. Kevin Durant
    5. Kobe Bryant

    Oh and special mentions to Tim Duncan, especially if he can keep up this rapid start

    Why not? Individually, they have just as much of a chance as anybody since we're excluding Lebron. Team record plays a big factor in this so other than that I don't see why any of those 2 wouldn't have a chance.

    If LeBron was freezed out of the award for him leaving in free agency, Dwight should get that ten-fold for holding a team hostage, and I believe the voters would agree (he was looked at so negatively). The Lakers had so much as far as expectations, they stood no chance of exceeding them, which is what would be required for Kobe to get a real chance at it.

    question: if kobe outperforms dwight as a laker, does that mean dwight's overall rank in the nba would drop since he is considered a top 3 player in the nba?

    and what would that do to kobe's rank?

    You are missing the point, Lebron didn't get it because the new team he went to had 2 other guys in there prime including a top 3 player and the team won fewer games than he had while in Cleveland. Not to mention he had already won back to back MVP's without even getting to the finals. Now had the Heat had a better record than he had while in Cleveland or he hadn't won any MVP's then you can say the situation would be similar.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    LeBron was the best player in the game, on one of the top teams. He was frozen out by the media entirely.

    Sooooo, Dwight or Kobe should win it? A top 2, top 5, top 12, and top 20 player on the same roster?

    Be consistent bud.
