Bold Prediction: Tony Parkers gets MVP this year
 
I feel like Tony Parkers is taking it this year, or is it just me?

Just you. He may be higher up in the voting that usual, he may even deserve it in some ways, but he won't win MVP.

who knows, we still have another entire half of a season to play & he may possibly lead his team to the best record in the NBA

Pfff. Who knows. They gave it to Derrick Rose that one year. Anything can happen.

He deserves 1st Team All-NBA...just like last year...but even more this year than he did last year.


It'd be cool if went to Paul...not because he should win but because he had a legit shout in 2008 and I think that Wade should have beaten Lebron in 2009. That would even it out a bit.

They gave it to Steve Nash twice so why wouldn't Tony Parker get it too?

Popovich is more important than any player on the team.

ZERO case over Paul. Okay they may finish with a couple games edge in the standings but CP3's all around stats and impact are significantly greater. We saw this month how without CP3 the Clippers were barely a .500 team. With Billups healthy they would be a 7 seed probably minus CP3. With him they could be the most complete team in the NBA and are at worst a top 3 or 4 team. Tony Parker isn't that big of a difference for the Spurs.


MVP is supposed to be the most valuable player to his team, not the 2nd best player on the team with the best record.

2nd best player? What have you been smoking? Tony Parker is the Spurs' best and most valuable player, case closed.


And Paul really has no case over him. First of all, he's missed 12 games. Parker has missed 3. So Paul better be playing twice as well. He's not. Parker shoots better percentages and scores a good deal more. Paul is the better playmaker and passer and defender but Parker is running that system better. Parker's scoring comes within that offense and his attacking the rim is the centerpiece of their offense. He does what he wants and he's separating himself more and more with each game.


Had Paul not been injured, then who knows? But he was and right now it shouldn't be an argument.


Parker is playing better than Paul. He did last year too, but I understand the value of what Paul did last year. Bryant should have made the 2nd Team last year. Parker has been even better this season. He's been the best guard in the NBA.

I think he deserves an MVP and is the #1 PG in the league and has been for the past 3 seasons BUT Lebron will get it the media is on his nuts harder then ever before this year.

Unless Lebron and Durant both get sniped there really isn't even a chance.

Duncan has been the Spurs best player this year and highest impact player this year IMO. Hell some have taken to say he's been the best bigman in the game. I have yet to hear a single person NOT call Chris Paul the best PG this year in the NBA. Chris Paul has been a better player than Tony Parker every single year of his career.

21 ppg, 7.5 apg, 3 rpg for Parker in 33 minutes.

17 ppg, 9.5 rpg, 3 apg, 3 bpg in just 30 minutes a game for Duncan as the team's defensive anchor.

Both have identical win shares and similar impact metrics but Duncan again has more value to the success of the Spurs due to his defense.

Missing 12 games doesn't disqualify you from an MVP race and Paul's absence proved exactly why he's the true MVP of the league. Take Parker off the Spurs and they are just fine. Take CP3 off the Clippers and they fell apart bad DESPITE having one of the best backup PG's.

Paul is a better player, is more important to his team than Parker... therefor he's a much stronger MVP candidate. The teams are so close record wise that that's negligible.
