His current level of play doesn't put him near the greatest of all-time. If he keeps it up for 5 years he's not the greatest of all time. This isn't up for discussion. This is stupid.

MVP goes to the best player on the best team nowadays and iirc, there are three teams with a better record than the Heat (Spurs, Thunder, Clippers) and two teams right on their tail (Pacers, Knicks).
Seeing as lebron is the best player this year by far and recently the bold in your post is not the case if you look at last year, I'll go with LeBron.

If the Heat end up behind Spurs, Clips and Thunder by seasons end, I don't see Lebron taking it. Even with how well he is playing right now, the Knicks who have been slumping are 1.5 back and Indiana is in the picture as well.

I'd put my money on Durant taking home the hardware this year.

It's possible either way. I'd put my money on the Spurs getting the best record in the league. The system they play is not vulnerable to lapses in effort and more sustainable than Heat or OKC. It's funny how they manage to get close to the best record every season and yet not enough credit is given to any of the players for MVP consideration, nor is enough credit given to Pop for coaching a group of un-deserving MVP candidates to a top record.

Anyways, I don't see Clippers topping the Heat in the standings at this point unless injuries were to happen to Miami. If at the end of the season OKC is in 2nd and has a win or two more than Miami, it won't be enough to keep the MVP away from LeBron. But that's just my personal opinion.

Wilt and Kareem are certainly in the discussion. Educate yourself.

LOL at this.

Lebron is the best player in the league.

And he is the most valuable player too.

Lebron is Miami's best playmaker, scorer, and defender...and they also count on him a lot for rebounding since Bosh and Joel Anthony suck at rebounding.

Durant is the Thunder's best scorer. That's his job. Playmaking is Westbrook's job. Ibaka and Sefalosha guard the opposing team's best player. Ibaka and Perkins get the rebounds and are more than capable of doing it.

This is stupid tho...first of all, how are you gonna complain that Anthony and Bosh are bad rebounders and then credit Ibaka and Perkins? Perkins is as bad as Anthony there and Ibaka doesn't get 9RPG and gets 9 per 36minutes. Durant is like a half rebound per game behind Ibaka so be accurate.


And this is stupid because it has nothing to do with the game. Just watch them play. Neither one is well out in front but if what you're saying accurately reflects how much better Lebron is playing then the Miami Heat wouldn't be so far behind OKC, playing in the lesser conference. Doing everything is not always a good thing. It's not always good basketball

1. Miami is 2 games behind OKC.

2. Miami has a better record against the West than OKC does against the East.

He is being accurate.Ibaka is the best rebounder not durant.Thats what he said and lets assume perkins is averaging as many minutes as durant he would be putting up 9.6rpg(in 39 minutes).You can compare joel because he rarely plays anymore.10mpg and even than assume he is playing as many minutes as durant he would only be averaging 6.9rpg.(in 39 minutes)

So you are a liar not him and dont forget most of the time battier is at 4 so all the rebounding resposibilities fall on lebron.Where as OKC rarely plays smallball.


Miami has a better record against west.Miami in western conference would fare better.Because west teams are very weak defensively.To beat miami you have to be a very good defensive team.Look at the teams dominated miami this season.All three are the best defenses we have right now.
Pacers-Knicks-Bulls.

Miami against not elite defensive teams is almost always a miami win.

I just wanted to point out that you are completely wrong.

I guess the 5 games in the win column are automatic for the Heat, right? That's 3 1/2 games. Based on the season average, the Heat are likely to go 2-1 over 3 games, putting them 3 full games behind the Thunder.


In the East.


But tell me that Miami has a better record vs than the East than OKC does vs the West. Miami may well play up to the competition. In the West, maybe they'd be up for every game and would be better. But the reality is that they're in the East and they play a lot more games vs the weak East than the strong West. So taking the smaller sample doesn't always hold weight the way you're acting it does. And since it's a regular season award and not an award to remind us all that James is the best player, this is all relevant.
