11-15-2012, 04:25 PM
It depends imo..

If Clippers end up with the top 2 seeds in the west I'd say Chris Paul would be the favorite followed by Durant..

If the Lakers get top 2 seeds in the West and Kobe continues to average what he's averaging, I'd probably say Kobe has a great chance as well..

As of right now I'd say Chris Paul is an early favorite, followed by Durant

Depends on team record honestly. Melo if the Knicks continue their dominance. Chris Paul if the Clippers win the division. Durant because he'll always be in the discussion - he's that good. Kobe, maybe, same with Dwight. Depends which of those two play better AND if the Lakers end up with 1 or 2 seed like projected.

Melo or Paul. I think it's gonna be hard for OKC to do better than last year, so for KD to win it he's going to have to have an unreal season. I can't see him having a season so clearly better than LeBron, or even some others.

Melo and Paul play on teams that can improve, and Melo especially has the most room for individual growth. Melo also is more clearly the best player on his team.

If the Clippers jump from the 5th seed to the top 1-2, and Paul continues to be a top 3-4 player, he's got a great chance. If the Knicks make a similar jump and Melo continues to shed some of the stigmas on him, he'll have a great chance too.


Kobe is interesting, because he's playing amazingly well - better than he has in a while - but his team is struggling and had HUGE expectations. No matter how great he is, if his team doesn't succeed, he won't win. The MVP is all about stories a lot of the time, unless there is a clear best player.

Blitzbolt

CP3 is the only one who has a shot the clippers have to be number 1 in the west.

But at end of the day Lebron is not even trying and he is getting almost a triple double every night.

Hawkeye15
11-15-2012, 05:07 PM
No way on earth it goes to Dwight, and probably not Kobe. Durant makes sense, he has been on the cusp a few years. Melo right now is in the mix. Harden's team will be in the lottery most likely, no chance for him. Paul has a chance if the Clips get a top 2 seed as well.

Hawkeye15
11-15-2012, 05:07 PM
But its LeBron's to lose. He is playing on a different level then any other player in the NBA right now.

kyubi256
11-15-2012, 05:21 PM
I'd say Carmelo because he is the leader of the Knicks and if they perform like how they should, he should be a finalist in the MVP talk.

Kobe is having a phenomenal year but the Lakers aren't performing too well. Durant is always a finalist but the Thunder do not seem like their old dominant self this year which will hurt him. Harden would be a nice pick but I don't see him winning, unless the Rocket do really well (6th seed or higher). I feel if they squeak into the playoffs, he won't get enough.

CP3 is also a fantastic choice. I can see him winning it. Also don't sleep on Zach Randolph, especially with the way Memphis has played so far.

Right now I'd say the top 5 likely to win after Lebron would be, in no particular order.

1. Carmelo Anthony
2. Chris Paul
3. Zach Randolph
4. Kevin Durant
5. Kobe Bryant

Oh and special mentions to Tim Duncan, especially if he can keep up this rapid start

Why not? Individually, they have just as much of a chance as anybody since we're excluding Lebron. Team record plays a big factor in this so other than that I don't see why any of those 2 wouldn't have a chance.

If LeBron was freezed out of the award for him leaving in free agency, Dwight should get that ten-fold for holding a team hostage, and I believe the voters would agree (he was looked at so negatively). The Lakers had so much as far as expectations, they stood no chance of exceeding them, which is what would be required for Kobe to get a real chance at it.

and what would that do to kobe's rank?

You are missing the point, Lebron didn't get it because the new team he went to had 2 other guys in there prime including a top 3 player and the team won fewer games than he had while in Cleveland. Not to mention he had already won back to back MVP's without even getting to the finals. Now had the Heat had a better record than he had while in Cleveland or he hadn't won any MVP's then you can say the situation would be similar.

LeBron was the best player in the game, on one of the top teams. He was frozen out by the media entirely.

Sooooo, Dwight or Kobe should win it? A top 2, top 5, top 12, and top 20 player on the same roster?

Actually you could say Wade was the best in 2010 or even Kobe with how things ended vs Boston that year. Once game 5 happened against Boston the entire view on Lebron changed. Wade dominated the celtics that postseason, he just had a weak team to do anything against them as far as winning.

:facepalm: How in the hell is Melo leading in votes? He might be having career numbers, but if anyone was a clear No. 2 behind Lebron, it's definitely Durant. And Paul would actually be my third. IF Melo can stay healthy the entire season and continue to put up similar numbers, he'll be in the discussion, but he shouldn't be ahead of Durant or Paul, whose numbers will be most definitely be superior by the end of the season.

No, you can't say Wade was the teams best player. The playoffs have absolutely no sway in the MVP award, the voting is done previous.

Point stands. You want to freeze out the best player in the world for leaving in free agency, then you better hold true when a player holds his team hostage and ends up on a team stacked FAR more than the Heat were LBJ's first year.

the voting wasn't made public, otherwise it would be obvious NY fans are pile driving the voting. He has been awesome the first 5 games. But, isn't this Melo's career? 20 games where you say, "damn, that dude is a top 3 player", followed by 20 games where he doesn't try on defense, stops moving the ball, chucks away, and looks like him being ranked top 20 is a stretch. He just so happened to start out with his good stretch this year.

Durant and Paul are the easy 2-3 choices. Dwight should get frozen out from the vote, Kobe with 1350 games on his knees can't possibly sustain a statistical season that would rank #1 in his career.

KD: 24.2 pts (49% FG, 89% FT), 10.3 rbs, 4.0 ast, 1.6 blks, 1.6 stls

I went ahead and bolded the better of the two in each standard category...


To me Lebron's #1 competition would be CP3. The one guy in the league who I think might be a flat better basketball player than Lebron (and everyone else) - tho' not necessarily more impactful - and has his team firing on all cylinders in the early going.

But that's ridiculous. Last year's team missed an insane amount of time due to injuries and this team is clearly deeper and better defensively that last year. Last year's team also had to deal with the coaching drama.

Regardless, I can't imagine Melo being an MVP candidate by the end of the season. His numbers will falter or he'll get injured. He always does. And then we'll all be reminded why the guy doesn't deserve to be spoken in the same breath as guys like Lebron, Wade, Durant and Kobe.


If Kobe ends the season with a higher PER, win shares, and ws/48 than LeBron, barring injuries, I will sport a Kobe sig.
Not only do I agree with this, but I'll one up it. If Kobe tops Lebron in PER OR WS/48, I will allow Lakers fans to make a custom Kobe sig that I will sport for one full year. That's how confident I am that this will never happen for the rest of their careers. Kobe has not surpassed Lebron in either stat since 2006-2007.

I won't do Win Shares, though, because an injury could keep Lebron from posting higher totals.

Houston Rockets rookie Royce White says he is prepared to walk away from the NBA.

Speaking in an interview with ESPN's Colleen Dominguez, White said he was going to meet with general manager Daryl Morey on Monday to discuss his situation with the team.

The Rockets have said they intend to fine White for every day he remains away from the team or does not attend sessions with a therapist arranged by the team. The Houston Chronicle has reported the Rockets have no plans to trade or release White.

So Royve White lead his team in; scoring, rebounding, assists, steals and blocks? Sounds like a great talent... Houstn has to work on getting him on the court.


It's a shame an East coast team didn't draft him. Then he could bus to most of the games no problem, and maybe take some time off for west-coast trips.

Everyone knew about his anxiety as he was and continues to be open about it. There have been plenty of athletes and famous people with issues as bad as his but go undiagnosed and ultimately it ends up bad for them.

I dont see how the help he wants from the Rockets organization is worse than what the Cowboys are doing with Dez Bryant with a freaking security team monitoring him so he avoids going to jail again.

Would be terrible to see him actually sit out from basketball over this.

Outside of LeBron, I have never seen a 6'8 250+lb player who has as good of ballhandling passing ability as he does.

You think another year playing college basketball would prepare him for issues that will affect him for a majority if not all of his life? :eyebrow:

He has issues he has to confront to be successful, but Houston refuses to go to the extent he feels he needs help for fear of making him appear more important than the rest of his teammates.

not possibly helped him with his issues but maybe it would have helped him get a degree which he could have fallen back on if the NBA didn't work out for him because of his problems.

He knew what he was getting himself into. Why bother even trying for the NBA if you're going to quit for reasons you should've already considered.

thats a bummer. He reminded me of Diaw before he got his big deal and just started getting fat and out of shape.

If your anxiety and fears of travel are that bad, the NBA is not for you.

And if he gets it...

Money for me...

Out of those 4, which one do you feel will have the hardest time sustaining their play? Btw, Melo isn't even playing as well offensively as usual, his team is just winning.

At the current point in the season:
1. LeBron James (7-3)
2. Carmelo Anthony (6-0)
3. Chris Paul (6-2)
4. Kevin Durant (6-3)
5. Tim Duncan (7-2)
6. Deron Williams (5-2)
7. Brandon Jennings (5-2)
8. Tony Parker (7-2)
9. Rudy Gay (6-1)
10. Kemba Walker (4-3)

I feel bad about not putting someone from Memphis or San Antonio higher, but their teams' success is more based on balance rather than stars. Even if his team has lost three games, I don't think you can top LeBron James at this point. Meanwhile Kemba Walker (19 points, 5.1 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 2.9 steals per game) is having an awesome season, and the most mediocre team last season is currently sniffing the playoffs. I think they'll fall off a bit eventually, but Walker is definitely on the list right now.
