Default Re: Bold Prediction: Tony Parkers gets MVP this year

I know what Paul is. But Parker is not on a team that succeeds with or without him. He was the best PG in the playoffs last year. The only advantage I could give to Westbrook was that he got to the Finals and was easily OKC's best player.

Based on what? Let's go over the games Parker has missed this year.

Spurs vs Bulls: Spurs win by 14 despite no Parker (or Duncan).

Spurs vs Heat: Lose by just 5 despite no "Big 3" including Parker.

Spurs vs Blazers: Win by 3 despite no Parker.

So they are 2-1 this year without him and anybody who knows basketball knows the Spurs system makes everybody thrive. The one loss was down to the wire vs the defending champs. They can line up a group of D League players and still win games, because they are that well coached and the system is that spectacular.

In other words NOTHING has suggested that the Spurs NEED Parker. Go make a thread asking if Parker or CP3 is the better player or PG this year (wording is up to you). Let's get a bet going.
