An argument can be made for all, personally they should just change it to a MOST OUTSTANDING PLAYER award and give it to the best player statistically.
here's my problem with that... there already is a scoring title, there's a DPOY award, there's all NBA teams..all of those are individual awards like a "MOST OUTSTANDING PLAYER" award would be... I like that the MVP can be won by a guy like Nash one year and a powerhouse like Shaq another... I'd hate to see the award given to a player whose team misses the playoffs but because he puts up the statline he is the winner...
each season is different and some years you have a guy like Nash doing more than just scoring to elevate his team and other years your going to have a shaq type who can put the team on his back and carry them to victory...
good discussion gang..keep it up
