These Knicks are seen as more of an ensemble effort by significant additions (Kidd to name one), and it doesnt help that before this year the Knicks had a rep of an underachiever. I dont think 55 wins makes this story tantalizing enough. Melo is gonna need more help than that to win MVP.
"It’s absolutely ludicrous” (to judge players based on whether they’ve won a title.)
Melo lost a lot of MVP points after last night.
You can not let some trash talk affect the way you play as poorly as he did.
As of right now I still have it between cp3
Bron and Durant with no one clearly in the lead
Lol clearly melo lost MVP consideration last night.. Lol it's still between the 4 I mentioned
That said, Melo was having a poor game before the trash talk even started. So lets not act like the trash talk was the sole reason he was off last night.
"Hey, JR. You're Moving to Cleveland"
That's about it. Melo and Kobe have played great, but not MVP great like the other three.
Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.
someone better add Harden to this list.
"If I had to pick a center [for an all-time best team], I would take Olajuwon. That leaves out Shaq, Patrick Ewing. It leaves out Wilt Chamberlain. It leaves out a lot of people. And the reason I would take Olajuwon is very simple: he is so versatile. It's not just his scoring, not just his rebounding or not just his blocked shots. He was in the top seven in steals. He always made great decisions on the court. For all facets of the game, I have to give it to him." -Michael Jordan
Can someone post the CP3 for MVP article on ESPN who's an insider
It goes on to say that he will have to have the best narrative to win MVP, and that that may be hard with how deep the Clippers are.
In other words, it echoes everything myself and some others have said all year. The article title was a bit misleading.
I generally don't like point guards winning MVP. They just can't dominate like a big or wing.
It depends on what the award truly means.
If MVP means best player, then Lebron would be working on his seventh or eighth already. If MVP means just that...Most VALUABLE Player, then I don't see how so many can be so quick to dismiss 'Melo.
Take Lebron off the Heat, and where are they? Still decent.
Take KD off the Thunder, and where are they? I think a little bit better than decent.
Now take 'Melo off the Knicks, and where are they? Working overtime scouting the college ranks, preparing for our lottery pick.
If Valuable truly means Valuable, I think at this moment the two frontrunners are 'Melo and CP3 (The Clips are ultra-talented, but Paul makes them go).
with wades injuries their lack of big men and lack of depth miami without lebron would be less than decent.
