It seems like the winner of the MVP for the last few seasons or so belonged in a Top 3 team. If Lebron's Cavs falls into 4th or 5th team (Behind Celtics, Lakers, Orlando and even Spurs) Will he win the MVP this year based on other attributes like stats?



What if the Cavs lets say only wins 55-59 wins this season?

but Wade played on a barely 500 team. There's a difference there my man.

5th seed....

the answer is that it'd be very unlikely. his stats would have to be way, way bettter than anyone else's, which isn't going to happen.

The field is WIDE, WIDE open in that case

If he were to get MVP, and the Lakers, Celtics, and Magic were to get better records, with the Cavs failing to win 60 games, then no. He would have to average something like 33+ 8+ 7+ for him to have good shot at it.

And definitely not considering that Wade was basically robbed of it last year.

yea, I don't think he will get it again if Cavs are not the top 2 in east. Dwight maybe?

Wade was like 3rd last year for MVP voting winning less than 50 games.

I'm sure Lebron has a good chance to win if his team got 55-59 wins.

seed doesnt matter. the jazz would have been better than them and they had an 8th seed

Cavs will win 60+ and he'll repeat... No one is more instrumental to their team than him.

Definitely yes! because he is the media favorite.

I don't see why not...assuming that he isn't the reason they aren't top 3...which he wont be. He'll have to keep up a 30+/8/8 pace though.

Voters will go with either LeBron or Kobe.

yes, he very could win it even if they are not top 3. Kobe, Lebron get more than enough love from the media to get it. No one else will be mvp except these two. You can bet me. D Wade will never win it unless the heat is a 70+ team. He surly doesn't get his well deserved respect from the media (voters).

LOL, was it being a 5th seed suppose to negate the fact that they were an average squad. There is still a significant difference between the 2 squads in this scenario.
