    Redeem Team: MVP......

    I want to make this a legitimate debate, who do you think was the MVP of the so called "Redeem Team"? Simple question, please explain.

    Kobe He was the most clutch. i think he actually led the team in the Final Game. It was such a talented team though, so there can be debate.

    i think there should only be 2 options, kobe and wade. Lebron did not really make a huge difference at all on the team esspically compared to those 2 so i would really love to hear people that vote for lebron give their reasons.

    Anyone who watched the Redeem Team play would know that D-Wade was its MVP. He gave up the most to accommodate Kobe and LeBron. He was the most intense player during every moment he got to play. He was its leading scorer. He was the one who carried the load in the Gold Medal Game when Bryant and James were in foul trouble. He came off the bench and made sacrifices in all aspects to be a complementary piece to James and Wade. In the end Wade did more for the Redeem Team than any other player. He also hit very clutch shots in the Final moments of the Gold Medal Game. On the floor D-Wade was really the most explosive player on that team while being itís shut down defender most of the time.

    Wade: 16 ppg .671 fg % .471 3pt% 4rpg 18 stls 15 assists all in about 18.8 mpg
    Lebron 15.5 ppg .602 fg% .464 3pt% 5.3 rpg 19 stl 30 assists 24.8 mpg
    Kobe 15 ppg .462fg% .321 3p% 2.8 rpg 9 stl 17 assists 23.5 mpg

    Looks like wade did a bit more with a lot less time... He also was the only player that led them in scoring multiple games including the biggest game of all. But id say its close between him and lebron

    I am really hoping for LebRon to tear an ACL. I don't know how Rose and other players who are athletic jumping all over the place get injured but this orangutang stays healthy forever.

    Guess nobody on here appreciates DEFENSE.


    No brainer Kobe. What they win without him again? I thought so.

    Wade led the team in scoring with 16ppg, off the bench....and he had less minutes per game than Kobe, Lebron, Melo, CP3 and Deron. He did this with a whopping 67% from the field, better than everyone on the team except the big men (D12, Bosh).

    He also committed less turnovers than Kobe and Lebron, and shot better than both of them from the 3 point line AND the FT line.


    Statistically, Wade was the best player on the floor. IMO, he was also the most valuable player. In the final game against spain, both he and kobe were extremely clutch to seal the win. Wade led in points with 27, to go along with 4 steals. But Kobe went off in the 4th.

    Throughout the entire Olympics, I believe Wade was the MVP. In the Final game, it was Kobe for his clutchness and defense.

    Kobe guarded the best player on the opposing team and killed Spain when it mattered most though.

    I really don't think there is one clear cut guy because Lebron, Kobe, Wade, and Kidd all brought something that was equally important. Lebron brought play making, Kobe brought defense, Wade brought scoring, but Kidd also needs to be talked about for his leadership.

    honestly, lemme break down these 4:

    Kobe - doesn't deserve it because he was a defensive stopper and a vet on this team. He only really made a contribution in the final game against Spain where he made those clutch shots.

    Lebron - just another guy on a very talented team. He's great, but not the MVP of this team.

    Wade - probably the MVP, I don't see why you would say anyone else. The guy played out of his mind, returning from injury strong and showed people that he will return to the NBA stronger than before. And he came off the bench too.

    Bosh - I don't think this guy deserves an MVP for this team, but you gotta give him props. Howard didn't seem very dominant down low in the Olympics, and to me, Bosh destroyed the paint defensively and offensively. He came off the bench as well, so his tag team with Wade was amazing.
