Thats the sexy pick along with CP3.
    it is a sexy pick but i don't know if the media would vote for him, if he becomes the 1st seed its a lock i think especially considering the new york media will have his back he dropped from 1st to 4th in the mvp rankings as soon as miami took back the 1st seed. thats just my opinion he doesn't really have any hype at the moment.

    I don't think LeBron gets it especially with MIA being worse than last year. Hes the best player in the game but the MVP is not the best player in the game award.

    It can't go unnoticed that Melo is playing this well and has his team 1/2 game out of first place with JR Smith as his 2nd option. Hes not on a team full of superstars like the rest of those guys. That weighed heavily in Rose's favor when he won the award.
    Yea but with Rose, he was the fresh face, his ascension to stardom coincided with the teams drastic improvement despite injuries.

    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.)

    Mike James was just signed by the Mavs. I think it is time to close this thread down.

    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

    I think how he responds will hold more weight then the incident, but until Thursday/Friday where he can redeem himself its safe to say he lost some points last night.

    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.

    1. Lebron
    2. Durant
    3. CP3

    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

    To summarize, it basically says that Chris Paul will be MVP if people get bored of writing in Lebron's name (actually that is verbatim one of the lines), and that his numbers are underwhelming for an MVP candidate until you look at them as "per 36" numbers (generally focusing on WARP - wins above replacement - ), where they make him look just under average for an MVP candidate.

    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).
