Durant no questions asked. I can understand people arguing for Lebron.....that bunch just doesn't know what the MVP trophy stands for.

if you take durant off okc they wouldnt be as good as miami, lol wtf?? of course they wouldn't thats a dumb statement
I'm pretty sure he meant that OKC without Durant is worse than Miami without LeBron which makes Durant more valuable than LeBron.

OKC has literally 1 more win than Miami, and they've played exactly 1 more game than Miami. After Miami beats Toronto tonight, they'll have the exact same record of 44-17. I highly doubt that would be the case if Westbrook sat out a quarter of the season like Wade did.

Its always interesting to see great players give their opinions on players today. You'd think if anyone can recognize what it takes to be great its other players. That's why I think the MVP should be voted on by actually NBA players who better to determine who the best is than the guys that play them on a daily basis? The media voting for MVP is a joke

The greatest player of all time is probably one of the worst judges of talent the NBA has ever seen.

I don't even know Skip Bayless said that you're referencing. The point is players aren't any better judges of talent than the rest of us. The people with the greatest insight and knowledge are the one's who follow the game the closest.

Seeing as Rose/Nash are two of the worst MVPs of all-time, their opinion is irrelevant. MVP to Lebron.

This is a very good point no way Durant goes 12-1 without Westbrook.. That is in my mind the determining factor.
