    So I don't know. Like just about everyone else, he is overrated by many, and underrated by many. It depends on how that person is indeed rating him.
    I can agree with that. I just don't understand how people say he isn't a Candidate. He is clearly behind lebron and Durant but I think he in the 3-4 range in importance for their team

    It works with everyone.
    I agree. There are some people who fly under or over the radar universally, but it's very few. The reality is that usually there's a large population that overrates a player, and a large population that underrates a player...for almost every player.

    Totally agree.

    The guy is leading the league in scoring, shooting a career high 49% from the field, 39% 3pt range and 88% FTs, and his steals are up at around 1.7 a game. But the putrid 9-11 record probably erases away all that, as you said. Really unfortunate.

    So far its Durant, he is playing great all around game and really leads his team to one of the best records in the league. And he really nears the LeBrons level improving by a bit. I feel this year will be Durants year.

    furthermore, even if the Lakers turn it around at some point, their record will not be top 4-5 in the league, virtually guaranteeing Kobe has no shot at the MVP.

    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.

    Lakers 1-8 when Kobe scores 30 or more and 8-3 when he's under 30.

    Just seems setup for Durantula to win (not saying it's rigged, more of a 'his time is now' thing). I'd be surprised if he didn't win it.

    I would be surprised as well. If LeBron doesn't clearly outplay him, they won't (yawn) give the award to him again. Durant is the next man up.

    Yeah. Story lines and narratives (see: Derrick Rose) play a huge role. It's Durant's time...it's his to lose.
