Is it just me or is this pretty classless by D'Antoni?

Suns coach Mike D'Antoni's Most Valuable Player race doesn't include Kobe Bryant. D'Antoni says the MVP race still is between Steve Nash and Dirk Nowitzki, despite reports of a third contender. "Who's the third?" D'Antoni asked Wednesday.

KB24 has no real shot at it so why not keep this to himself? Especially when you play the Lakers twice and are a 2 or 3 game losing streak from playing them in the first round...

it's just you, d'antoni didn't say anything wrong...

he just considers the MVP race is between two people... and it is... nothing wrong with that.

Yes, it's just you. He's absolutley right.

He said that although Kobe's great, the Lakers are not.

Nothing wrong with that statement.

It's just you. There are no other "true" MVP candidates other than Dirk and Nash, and right now I would even go so far as to say it's just Dirk.

I think LeBron is more of an MVP than either Dirk or Nash and if the Cavs win 50, he WILL win...

The Cavs won 50 year if I remember correct, and he was putting up better numbers. He didn't win it then, and he won't win it now.

There is a ton of respect between Kobe and Mike. Part of the reason Kobe wore #8 was in tribute to D'Antoni, when D'Antoni played in Italy. He usually always gives Kobe his dues.

at the start of the year I thought if the Cavs won 50+ it would go to Bron no matter what. I didn't expect the Mavs to be so dominating though. If the Mavs were on pace to win something like 58-60, then I would stick to the LeBron prediction but with the Mavs already at 60 wins with 11 games left, it would take a massive collapse for Dirk to lose it now.

I'm sure he was asked that by reporters. You think he called a reporter and told him that`? :banghead:

It's just you. Most people think it's a two horse race and it probably is.

How about posting the whole quote, I am a Laker fan also, but if you post the whole quote you will see what else he said about him.

Suns coach Mike D'Antoni says the race for the NBA's Most Valuable Player still is between Steve Nash and Dirk Nowitzki, despite reports of a third contender.

"Who's the third?" D'Antoni asked Wednesday.

"I love Kobe," D'Antoni said of Bryant, answering his own question. "I think Kobe is great. I just don't know if (the Lakers have) played well enough."
