Will Chris Paul will a Season MVP in his NBA Career or will most of them go to guys like Dwight, Lebron, Durant, maybe even Wade, and other players?

I say No now, I give it around a 25% chance if that

I really can't see how anyone could defiantly say no.... I mean who would have thought at this time last year that Derrick Rose would have won his the MVP award in just his 3rd season in the league.

I'll say that there are many factors which will have to fall in his favour but he is certainly still good enough to win it. I mean seriously Steve Nash won back to back MVPs... IF Chris Paul goes to the right situation I can certainly see him bouncing back to good enough health and having a stellar MVP campaign in the not to distant future.

It's certainly possible. The guy drops monster stats, he just needs better teammates so he can have the good team record to go with it. I say he'll get 1, but not with the Hornets.

Once he gets traded to the Thunder then yes.

No his team will never be good enough for him to win it.

No his team will never be good enough for him to win it.

This. And the fact if he does go to a good team with a chance to win it all, he will not be the only top dog, putting up that many numbers as he usually does.

He has the talent to win it but I don't trust him to stay healthy. If can stay healthy for a year and lead his team to the playoffs (probably wherever his next team is) then he could win it but guys they get injuries a lot tend to get injured there entire career.

no because the nba's defifnition of MVP is messed up.

And how do you know? He already finished as a number two seed and that team wasn't great. With no CBA it's way too soon to talk about rosters.

If he's traded to a contender, let's say OKC or NY he will most likely win at least one. I am pretty sure he'll be a top candidate for MVP along with LeBron and Dwight for a long time if he's on a contender.

MVP is all about your team getting the best or one of the best records in the NBA
the Hornets winning the West seems unlikely, so I say No

Yes: if he joins Raptors in 2012-13 n brings them to a top 3 team in ECF.

If he goes to a team like New York or LA, and leads them to a #1 seed, I can see it.

The players around him would have to make a dramatic change in order for him to be argued an MVP, not to mention his level of play is annually slightly lower than the few other elite players that are in the running for the MVP.

Does he deserve it? Yes.

Will he win it? No.

Not while he's on the Hornets but even if he joins a super team probably not.

Avenged

Definitely. He's a top 5 talent, 25 (?) year old.. A top 5 player in the game, and when fully healthy and in form he has an argument for being the best in the league.

Just give the Hornets some time for them to make some noise, if it's not with them it will be with another team. He has the talent, it all depends on team success.

He should have won it already.

09-04-2011, 02:02 AM
He just needs to get traded then he will win 2 in a row lol :)

a la Steve Nash

LTBaByyy
09-04-2011, 02:06 AM
He just turned 26?!?!?!?!?! A top 5 player JUST NOW entering his prime. I thought he was 28 or 29 wow.

Please leave New Orleans CP3, if he goes to NY or LA Clippers (Who else will have Cap room)....

He will def get at least 1 for sure

You realize we're talking about Chris Paul? The same guy that is probably the second or best passer in the entire league? It's not like he's scoring as it is, better roster = better numbers because of the type of player he is.

Without a doubt.

Man, I feel bad for CP3. He definitely deserves a better team. The guy is joy to watch. Makes everyone better around him and is very unselfish. I want to see him in the Knicks/OKC/Clippers, he'll make them a true contender for sure. (No disrespect to NO fans).

TheNumber37
09-04-2011, 02:49 AM
Not as a Hornet. He has to be traded to the Thunder, Clippers, Knicks, Grizzlies or maybe the Magic to even have a shot

09-04-2011, 03:18 AM
nope not with guys like dirk, kobe, rose, wade, lebron, durant, around

If he goes to the Knicks it is inevitable.

He will win one at some point. I wish it would be with New Orleans, but I know it won't be unfortunately.

Contingent on his health and what team he's on. If Rose can do it then Paul can for sure. I really hope he gets somewhere where he can flourish, cause the dude is the second coming. We all know that.

ne3xchamps
09-04-2011, 09:22 AM
I voted yes, but IMO only if he leaves NO. Staying on the hornets he won't win a mvp.

Raps18-19 Champ
09-04-2011, 10:06 AM
He's a beast but it will be very hard. He needs to be on a good team first for it to happen.

He should have won in 08 though.

Chris Paul should have won the MVP award in his 3rd season too.

pick and roll with Amare Stoudemire ,YES

Look @ what he did with players like Tyson Chandler David West and even aaron gray A 2nd round pick

If he doesn't win it in New Orleans where does he stand the best chance to do so? In NY or Orlando?

New York.

Orlando is Dwight's team without a doubt. Not only that but CP3 will allow Dwight easier shots on offense.

In NY I think he'll prove who's team it would be since he would be their best player, and the improvement of both Melo and Amare alongside him will prove it.

How so? Nash won the award twice and he perfectly captures the meaning of MVP.

This. I'm sure Melo and Stat would be thrilled.

If he ever vaults NO to the #1-3 seeds, and posts anything remotely close to his 08-09 year, then yes, he will win one.

da ThRONe
09-04-2011, 01:09 PM
He does not need to leave the N.O. to win an MVP! He was already the runner up and was robbed IMO(of course I'm bias).

Why are people throwing out the Clippers? They have the most notoriously cheap owner in the league.

Kashmir13579
09-04-2011, 01:20 PM
There is no reason he shouldn't have already.

Dankster
09-04-2011, 03:50 PM
Sure, if he goes to the knicks and turns them into a # 1 seed/ NBA finals contender. His #'s would look pretty ridiculous in NYC...

Exactly, he doesn't need to go to a different team he just needs to vault the Hornets to a top seed. Like what Lebron did with the Cavs and what Rose did with the Bulls. He will be a top candidate for MVP if he does.

When its all said and done, he"ll be remembered as the best point guard of all time. Bar none.

Ebbs
09-05-2011, 01:19 PM
Hard to judge but for it to happen he needs to produce beastly stats on a top 2 team in either conference.

Antipod
09-05-2011, 01:49 PM
not with his current team

mzgrizz
09-05-2011, 04:31 PM
no; think he's already peaked.that injury a year or so ago took a lot out of him IMO

Raph12
09-05-2011, 05:37 PM
If he's traded for Rose, then yes and rather easily...

THE MTL
09-05-2011, 07:23 PM
Its very possible. Honestly he should have won in 2008 when he lead NO to second best record in the Western Conference and single handedly CRUSHED the Mavs in the playoffs.

Anyway, he goes to NYC and him, Stat, and Melo combine for one of the best records in the league....he'll probi be the one who gets the MVP trophy especially in the D'Antoni system

Sly Guy
09-05-2011, 08:21 PM
if he stays healthy, and if he finally gets a team good enough to win enough games to get placed in the conversation. I think he's a skilled enough player to do so, but I worry about the other two issues.

Geargo Wallace
09-05-2011, 08:45 PM
I could see him getting an MVP award if he gets a loaded team. Playing beside Howard would give him a great chance. Plus the media gets bored of voting the same guy for MVP (LeBron) year after year. I don't see Rose winning it ever again. But if he can do it, Paul certainly can.

09-05-2011, 09:11 PM

If he teams up with Howard, I think Dwight will get the MVP...

Chris Paul has the same things going for him that Steve Nash and Derrick Rose did before him. If another perfect storm hits like it did for Rose this year, I could see it.

Honestly, I see next year as another wide open season. People still aren't going to want to give it to LeBron after those Finals, Wade is out of it because he plays with LeBron, Kobe's pretty much done winning MVP's, Rose is going to face a lot of scrutiny after these last playoffs.

I'd say the preseason frontrunners will be Dwight, Durant and Dirk, but Paul could easily sneak in there if his team does well enough. One of Amare or Melo will get extra New York hype, but neither are anywhere close to actually deserving an MVP (the "Amare for MVP" talks that stretched past the ASB this year were a sad joke).
