MVP is a subjective award, just like those all defensive teams that people here are always bitching about.

If it was completely legit, Kobe would definitely have more than 1.

No, but I will tell you that if Bryant was the player so many of you think he is he'd have gotten more than one. You guys harp on Nash's aberration seasons but ignore that MVP awards are part of the legacy of guys like MJ and Magic. The fact remains that James has gotten 3 MVPs, thrice as many as Bryant in half the time.

Well it's pretty obvious who has been deleting all the pro-Kobe threads, while leaving the anti-kobe and pro-lebron threads up.

Kobe's a polarizing player, and the media(who votes on MVP) is just as susceptible to bias as anyone else. Shaq also has less MVP's than Nash. Is Nash better?

We've alread discussed this. Nash is an exception to the norm, and he only won two. There were plenty of other seasons for Bryant to capitalize on. The media holding a vast anti-Kobe conspiracy is a new point, I'll grant you. After we're done figuring out the Benghazi thing McCain and I will look into it.

You're denying Kobe's a polarizing player, regardless of skill? Almost as silly as when you used to claim Pierce was better "get buckets"

The history of the NBA doesn't revolve around Kobe. You do realize that right???

........do you even know what polarizing means. Saying a guy is polarizing doesn't mean everything revolves around him. In this case it just affects his mvp votes. Steve Blake can be polarizing if there are large numbers of people who hate or love him.
