    MVP standards...

    After,
    Debating for days about who should be the MVP of the league and why i had to form a question. What are the standards to become the MVP. Many feel it should be the best player on the best team in the league. Some feel it should be done by the numbers because numbers doesnt lie. Other people feel its strickly PR whom ever is the golden boy of the league at the time.


    Many years there have been discussions on players who have been robbed of the award.


    Some people feel the MVP has to be the guy who's team is number #1 in the league.
    To my knowledge there isnt a standard on what defines who the MVP is.




    Many players have been (robbed) of the award and IMO it hasnt been a valid MVP since the MJ days when clearly it was him who was the MVP.

    So i ask you guys what are the standards, or requirements to be named the MVP of the league.

    standards change every year. there really isn't no clear cut standard on who should be voted mvp. if there was, jordan would have won every year. it goes year by year.

    Whoever brings me a spicy chicken sandwich can be MVP. Those are the standards.

    Well normally MVP is decided by "best story".
    Imo, the MVP is the combination of statistical brilliance, value to respective team and being apart of one of the top teams (so record of that team).

    like above, its a combination of Team Success, players statistical feats and the value said player has on his team

    I don't think theres any risk of this thread being derailed by a spicy chicken sandwich. Although they are quite delicious.

    I look at MVP as in who has carried his team the most (stats+team record+clutch factor - surrounding cast)

    As we can see, RZZZA seems very disinterested in this so I'll start... lol.

    I think MVP standards are based on how valuable, important you are to your team... statistics obviously... and of course you're team needs to be doing pretty good. I remember bringing up the past five MVP winners and their respective teams were all 1st or 2nd in their respective conferences.

    well I can't give specifics. they are the reasons they are. I mean I thought wade should of beat out lebron two years ago, but didnt, but i also think winning should have something to do with it as well. it's hard, i mean thats why they are they way they are. standards change every year. usually though mvp goes off by expectations the voters have of a player and whether they meet/exceed them or not.

    but seriouisly this.the standard is based on the individual voter,each having different ideas for what the award is/what the standard should be.so with such a diverse body there/will never be a one true standard.but as koz said it usually goes to whomever is "the story" weather that be best statistical year(they actually use to have a separate award for that called the ibm prize,but that a brief experiment that never caught on) ,and massive jump in wins for a team from one year to the next,or simply as a reward to the best team(giving to the best player on that team).

    The criteria imo

    -Have to be at least a top 3 seed with even 2&3 being tough
    -Not a criteria but it helps alot to exceed expectations
    -Your team needs to be considered a contender
    -Your stats have to be pretty to the eye of the average fan at least
    -your team can't go below expectations
    -the media needs to like your story


    Obviously if someone does great in all but one category they fail then they can still win mvp the criteria aren't absolute. But the more criteria you fall under the better our chances are.
