You're half right. Nash definitely didn't deserve the MVP in 2005 either.

His numbers:
15.5 ppg, 11.5 ass.

Do those look like MVP numbers to you? They were far and away the weakest in the modern era.

In 1984-85, Isiah averaqed 21.2 ppg & 13.9 assists. Why didn't he get the MVP?

And don't talk about how he was "responsible" for the Suns' turnaround. He was A factor, but that was a team that had been decimated by injury and dissension the year before, that was completely underperformed and was ready for a breakout season -- no matter who the point guard was.

The fact is it should have been like this:

2005 MVP: Shaq
2006 MVP: Kobe

Problem of awarding MVPs to undeserving players solved.
