The Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant won this yr's All-Star Game MVP Award.

But he is also 1 of the top 2 candidates for this yr's League MVP Award with his competition being the Miami Heat's LeBron James.

The reigning 2x scoring champion is currently second in the league in scoring at 27.9 PPG behind the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant at 28.3 PPG.



In recent history only Michael Jordan (1996 & 1998)-CHI, Shaquille O'Neal (2000)-LAL and Allen Iverson (2001)-PHI have won league MVP honors, All-star game MVP honors and a scoring title in the same season.


Of those 3, Shaq (2000) and MJ (96 & 98) won the championship with the Finals MVP. Iverson made it to the finals, but lost to the Lakers.


Just thought it was interesting and wanted to point out the legendary names that KD can join, especially if he makes it to the finals and wins a championship and finals MVP.

idk bout looking into future but to accomplish everything....scoring title(he's behind kobe for now)....MVP(pretty sure voter's would give it to LeBron at this point)....reaching the finals(he possibly could)...and winning finals MVP(assuming he wins a ring this year)....i'll take my chance and say he's not gonna accomplish all that....

He's got a decent shot of winning the MVP but favorite at this point is LeBron. He needs to get his avg over 30 to win it.

Crap like this makes absolutely no sense. So if the Bulls were to sweep the Heat in the regular season then should we give the MVP to Rose?

Just because James and Durant are 1a and 1b in the MVP race, you don't take their regular season matchups into account to decide the winner. The MVP award is given to the player who had the best year individually against all the teams in the league.

So the team record has no effect on MVP standings then?!?

Is that what you are trying to tell us??? Cause when I looked over all the winners of this award at least for the last 10 years or so they have always had the best record in there conference. I'm pretty sure the record makes a difference and the heat currently have the same record as last year. It's never really been based on individual stats only.

P.S

Thunder are the best in the West ;)

Disagree. It's possible to put up amazing numbers on a 10 win team. MVP should be more about intangibles, which is why I think Derrick Rose won last year

Lebron James is the strongest, most talented and versitle guy in the league right now and he doesn't deliver when he really has to. Durant steps up every night.

This. Lebron's having one of the best seasons of all time when it comes to some of the advanced statistics. For Durant to win season MVP, the votes must be absolutely rigged (as in people are still mad ad LBJ).

Also OKC might not come out of the West. I see a team like Memphis (who matched up with them really well last year), or a team that has offensive power down low (E.g. Lakers) causing serious problems

And jus to think MJ had PIPPEN, SHAQ had KB8 and EZAIL had MCKIE as 'ROBINS', no wonder why its so easy to determine ..But back on topic, DURANTULA has a hell of a chance to do it, and he is the league MVP ..im convinced

ChicagoJ
03-26-2012, 11:23 AM
If OKC finishes with a better record than Miami Durant has a shot. But, LeBron's numbers this year in addition to being on a top team will probably win it for him.

Brons stats across the board, and the heat (more than likely) finishing second in the east should be enough for him to win MVP

Durant had the better game between the two in the matchup last night but Durant wouldnt solely win it because of one game. That would be pretty ignorant of the voters. LeBron is still in the lead for MVP at this point, but Durant is catching up.

03-26-2012, 12:52 PM
the mvp goes to the best player on the best team record wise mostly. Because of that Durant will probably win it. Doesn't matter how u individuals all vote because as much as you want to say 'intangibles' 'great stats' etc. it doesn't matter as much as the team's record. OKC will more than likely have the best record in the west going into the playoffs while Miami will most likely finish 2nd to Chicago record wise in the East. So durant will probably win it. Just look back at the past winners of the award. Outside of boston (who had the 'big 3' so thus kobe got it whose team btw, had the best record in the west).

Not really though. If the Thunder only win about 2-3 more games than Miami and with LeBron stat's being the way they are, the voters will still probably give the award to LeBron. (Unless Durant goes on some tear and increases his stats dramatically).

How is Iverson in this group and why would Allstar game mvp even matter?

More important would be the guys who won scoring title, league mvp and the title the same year and then you get MJ, Shaq, Kareem to name a few.

All-star MVP isn't the end all being all, but I just think it's kinda of cool for a player to win a triple-crown MVP in 1 season (ASG, League and Finals) along with being the leading scorer in the league.



I just wanted to give some love to AI. If it was any other team than the Shaq-Kobe Lakers, I think Philly would have won in 2001 and AI would have got the Finals MVP, thus would have legitimately joined MJ (twice) and Shaq.

Where the hell did you get that? Team record definitely matters but I'm saying you don't just look at the match-ups between the Heat and Thunder.

It's quite simple. If Lebron continues to play the way he has been playing, he'll win the MVP no doubt.

I'm sorry but even as a huge Heat hater I can say that if LeBron doesn't win the MVP this year it's a complete joke. He might be having the best regular season ever, if he doesn't win MVP it's because the writers just want to stir up some controversy. This is coming from a Knicks fan who has admittedly once said "I'd probably root for the Nazis if they were playing the Heat". That's how obvious it is that LeBron is the MVP.

03-26-2012, 05:57 PM
I'm just thinking of it this way. If Lebron beasts all over the other 29 teams and then comes to OKC for the first time and his team gets beaten all around, doesn't that mean Durant is the more valuable player, somehow? I know it's just one game.

Really they just need to clarify what MVP means. If it was all about stats I don't see why they should bother with scoring champion, assist leaders, etc

I guess based on the year it's decided by overall stats or whoever the league is excited about. I guess you could make a case for either of them

People that are not part of any games are the ones to vote.
That being said its an award given by a bunch of spectators, and should not mean a whole lot. If this award was based on only votes from coaches and other players it would be so much more credible.

Yes, they need to clarify the meaning of the award. MVP of a team, the league, that day, what? Last year's MVP has spent a lot of time on the injured list and the Bulls are the first team in the NBA to 40 wins any way. Not taking anything away from Derek Rose, he is a great player. So what is the exact criteria?

Before this season, I, and I am obviously a Thunder fan, did not consider KD, even though he led the league in scoring both seasons, a viable candidate for MVP because there were many times it was obvious that his inexperience on defense forced OKC to hide him on the defensive end sometimes. That has now changed as we saw last night seeing the two all-stars going head to head on both ends of the floor. Magic Johnson pointed out that in the many times Durant covered Lebron one on one, James hit one fade away jumper while Durant scored regularly on LBJ at the other end of the floor. Does that make Durant the MVP over Lebron when you compare their stats for the entire season? I don't know the answer to that, but I do know this. I have zero doubt if you asked either player whether they would rather win the MVP or the NBA Championship what their answer would be.

The MVP award is given to the player who had the best year individually against all the teams in the league.I've read that the MVP Kobe won over CP3 many voters looked at the late season game between the Lakers and Hornets and it was a factor in some voters decision.

MVPs are supposed to come from any team, but we all know there is an unwritten rule that the player has to be on a top seed.

if lebron loses mvp again, it will be the second year he has been robbed. lebron is on track to have the most efficient season ever. how is that not legendary?

That's no longer true actually. His PER is no longer on pace for even top 5 ever and his WS/48 are down below .300. His numbers are still absurd, but they're not so significant that he's in his own world.

Anybody saying it is a sham to have Durant over LBJ right now is completely off base. And personally I'd say it's now Durant in the drivers seat. After that game against the Heat ("It's one game!"). That one game mattered 10 fold more than a game versus the Bucks or Hawks in an MVP race that's tightened up this close buds, don't act like it didn't, he took the inside track.

Still time for that to change, especially considering they do play again.

^Looking at it now, Lebron himself has already had two seasons with a higher PER and higher WS/48 than he's on pace for right now. Duran'ts TS% is now slightly higher than Lebron's also. The stats are no longer too much to overlook.

If he gets the MVP and Finals MVP, then props to him. He's been playing really well this season but who gives a **** about All-Star MVP?

Durant is also the USA MVP




USA MVP
All-star MVP
Gonna be this year's MVP

And he's on pace to take the scoring title

He's gonna be a 3 Time Scoring Champion

Durant is not better then Lebron. He doesn't dish the ball as well or defend as well.

Lebron is much more of a complete player, however I'd take Durant over Lebron any day when starting a franchise because Durant is loyal and he's younger and he's a better leader.

Not only does Lebron have a better chance at MVP and, in my opinion, Finals MVP, but he also deserved the All-Star Game MVP over Durant.

Having no better of a game than KD and playing for the losing squad? Interesting take on it.

He has yet to win Gold in the Summer Olympics, the main olympics. But he'll do so this summer.

Another Lakers is hurt because he can't say Kobe for MVP anymore.

You are one of if not the greatest troll on these boards. You should open up the Naps Institution of Troll School.

Playing less, scoring just as much while being much more efficient, having two more turnovers but four more assists in less game time and being on fire in coming back in the clutch is a lesser game? Interesting take on it.

Does PSD always turn people into ***holes? :p

I trust you don't put much stock, if any, into your own criteria of being on the losing team. Lebron doesn't deserve to be discredited for his team's shortcomings, I think you've been there before, haha. I don't mind KD getting MVP because they traditionally choose the best player on the winning squad, but I don't think it has any greater meaning, especially when his greater rival had as good if not a better argument.

Can someone explain to me why Durant "Deserves" to win a ring over anyone else in the league? :eyebrow: Nobody "Deserves" a ring, you have to go out there and win it..
