now with nash winning the mvp i feel as if thier team still was way better.... so he shouldnt of won it.. lets not forget this mvp voting is all fans favourites.... to me i think guys like elton brand...(who carried his team to the playoffs for the first time n how many yrs???) lol he had good numbers and their record wasnt even far off from the suns.... that guy deserved it...he was 2nd i think in block shots this yr.. averg. countless double doubles... 20+ppg....and he carried his team pas the first round... kobe is a valuble player but not the MOST..... scoring 81 points doesnt automatically make u a shew in for that award how ever it was very impressive.....
but this yr is going to be great... because u have kobe coming bac ever so strong..and the onli thing he hasnt won is a finals mvp and a seasons mvp... shaq super seeded him n those categories....and kobe wants it bad....
guys like lebron will make a strong impression d-wayde...ron artest ..his name will be in there and even mike bibby..... elton brand name will be up there...dirk... nash again.... and i want u guys to watch out for KG he has alot to prove so i kno he will make his team better..also yoa and mcgrady...all of these guys are strong candidates for the MVP...but my guess it will be either Kobe Ron nash again...and lebron.... all depending if they play the way they played later half of the season....
Scoring 81pts is not the reason why us lakedrs fans say he deserved the mvp..
The 81pts was just an extra argument..They guy carried the whole team( a bunch of no-names+ inconsistent Odom) to the 6th best record in the WEST.
Nash has a supporting cast that is way supeiror to that of bryant's/
They had the
MIP in boris Diaw( who by the way had 2 triple doubles when nash was injured).,
Marion ( a stat sheet filler who was considered by many to be a mvp candidate
Anyways its all about the media being biased..Why do i say that ? for the simple reason that many of the voters didnt have KOBE in the TOP 5 for MVP.
How flagrant is that?..the MVP award is a joke;if u browse the internet a bit ull find several articles having for a title: NASH MVP: the award is a joke.
