True or False - If you win League MVP you are good enough to carry a team to the Title?

True. It wont be easy by any means, but you can do it.

yes if not then why would you deserve the mvp i mean if your teams wins 66 games(people consider you the best) and then they get eliminated by orlando and then they say(the whole team was scrubs besides lbj) please give me a break

Nash disagrees, he has 2 and no Finals appearance

I think so.

Winning MVP means you have top notch stats and lead a team to top 5 in the regular season.

That doesn't mean it is easier to get there though.

You SHOULD be able to, but many former MVP's have never won a title, even with great supporting casts.

08-31-2009, 03:46 PM
Yeah of course, I mean Dirk and Steve Nash both have MVP's.

Only if your name is gerald wallace

No, maybe in the past. Now the MVP has become more of a gimmick about who can give the journalist the best story.

The MVP usually is the best player from the best team so why not? It won't always be the case of course, but more often than not they would be the type of player you would want to have on a championship run.

marcus banks will be the 09-10 mvp, mark my words, miami will rue the day the traded him to the raptors

08-31-2009, 05:09 PM
if you win that award that means ur wanna of the best on the nba...

08-31-2009, 05:10 PM
if your team is strong enough.

08-31-2009, 09:18 PM
False. One player does not make a team. And MVP is offensively biased regardless, and common wisdom is that championships are won with defense.

a finals appearance

08-31-2009, 09:55 PM
In general, I think no..with the amount of playoff games to be played (at least 16) I highly doubt one single person can bring the team a title..they will run into problems. They need a solid team around them. Isn't Lebron a perfect example?

It's possible. It depends on his crew. 1 man cannot carry an entire team
