I know that its somewhat unlikely that the Clips make the playoffs, just because of their terrible start. But if somehow they get the 8th spot, would he be the league MVP?

Just before people say it's impossible for the Clips to make the playoffs... they're only 6 games out of 8th, the Blazers are sliding, Denver who is 7th now may trade away their best two players... I mean it's quite possible if they keep playing this way and teams continue to slide.

Another Edit:

Okay, one thing I want to say is that we all know there are flaws within the MVP award decision. However, the Clips were like 5-21 or something terrible like that. If they get to the playoffs, that a ridiculous turnaround. Lead by Griffin, there should be some type of recognition for that IMO (rookie or not).

If by some chance, the Clippers do make the playoffs, than he should definitely get the MVP award.

no. lol

Really? I dunno, Clips are only 6 games back of a playoff spot, it's been done before. Portland is sliding, Melo might get traded, so that's potentially 2 teams that can slide quickly.

He's not only playing well, but he's dominating the league right now.

History show that he wont win, even If he leads his team to the playoffs. I would love to see him in the playoffs, they are playing some good ball.

I agree, I think they have a shot to get in. They are playing good team basketball right now. Don't forget B.Roy just had surgery as well.

Well, look at Kobe 2006 season. They were eight and he scored 81.... So I don't think so. I just care about playoffs :D

Yeah that's a good point, and I think its something that the NBA has to alter in its decision making for an MVP... we all know its somewhat of a flawed award, however, if a guy leads a huge comeback from a team that was 5-21 into the playoffs, then thats something close to a miracle.


I think there should be special instances, cases like this for example.

MVP should at least be 2nd place in their conference

They have to do a lot more than just make it to the play-offs for him to win the MVP award. If they were to get in with the 5th seed or better he'd be in the conversation however.

Yeah I get what your saying, I think Kobe shoulda got way way more consideration that year, however the situation here is somewhat different.

Clips were like 5-21 right? If they turn it around and get in with Griffin leading them, thats something that rarely ever happens. It's a flawed award though, and I agree with what your saying.

The only way this could realistically happen is if the Clipps were to win 50+ ball games.

Making it an every bigger turnaround that the 59-60 Philadelphia Warriors when the had a 17 game swing thanks to eventual ROY/MVP Wilt Chamberlain. Difference is he dominated from the word go in a way no other Rook in NBA history has. 37 pts 27 rebs :speechless:

After him Wes Unseld won the award with numbers which weren't so jaw dropping but his impact on the league and his team was undeniable. Turning the 68-69 Baltimore Bullets from a 36-46 team to a 57-25 team.

Blake will have a tall order to climb but if he can some how lead the Clipps to a 50+ win season he'd certainly be in the discussion. This would place them among some of the biggest turnarounds in NBA history.
