the problem isnt whether or not lebron deserves it. ofcourse he has the most legit case.
the problem is that lebron wins it every single time he has a case for mvp
while other legends were told that the award must be passed around a bit before they can win it again.
if michael jordan got it every time he deserved it. he would have 8-10 mvps instead of 5
if wilt got it every time he deserved it. he would have 8-10 mvps instead of 4
if shaq got it every time he deserved it. he would have 4-5 mvps instead of 1
if kobe got it every time he deserved it. he would have 4-5 mvps instead of 1
babe ruth should have 10 mvps... he only has 1
ken griffey jr should have 5-6 mvps.. he only has 1
and ruth/griffey even had 2 leagues to win 2 mvp awards. yet still only got 1
lebron may verry well win 8-10 mvps at this pace. will they stop voting for him the minute he reaches 5 because he "cant" pass jordan in their minds?
will they finally wake up and realise that mike had 5 rings by the time he won his 5th mvp... and lebron could win more mvps than him before winning his 1st real title
the award is a joke because of the people who vote for it. no consistancy. the award is a joke
in 2001 they kept it from shaq because he had kobe, they said. its about your impact on a team
but then in 2002 they kept it from kidd because tim duncan was "the best player on the best team"
in 2004 they said kg had the best stats
in 2005 they said "look at the suns record before nash got there. who cares about stats"
in 2006 they said "look at their record without amare!... who cares about kobe"
in 2007 they said "kobe who? dirk is on the best team!"
what ever happend to the days of "change the critera to spread the wealth"
thats how the voters kept a balanced distribution
now every year its the same old story. give it to lebron because i like him... whatever criteria fits our agenda
lebron ring chased
hes playing with 2 other hall of famers in their prime
he plays in the weaker confrence
he could miss the season and miami would make the finals
thats not value. hes the best. but he isnt the most valuable player to his team.. that was the critera that kept it out of kobes hands a few years
in 2003 mcgrady or kobe could have won it over duncan if they had the same "best player/best stats" critera that won it for lebron in 2012
but like i said. maybe this year there is no argument. he is the best player on the best team. he is the best player in the league.. .and he has great stats.
but if it was kobe. theyed find a way to give it to someone else.
if it was kobe on miami... theyed give it to james harden... saying "look who harden plays with..."
if the lakers had the best record in the league this year and kobe had 30ppg... you know for a fact the media would say "but he has howard and nash"
