Seems fair, same top 5 I would have picked if I had a vote.

Well might have Duncan over Kobe, but could go either way.

Ok thats fine I agree except I would switch Nash and Dirk around and give it to nash but thats ok Dirk (even though I really don't like him) Deserves it if you don't give it to nash.

disgraceful.

nothing short of disgraceful.

Dirk.

it gets funnier and funnier by the day, too, as we watch GS get their asses handed to them by the 5th seeded Jazz and Nash play like more of a warrior each night. honestly, next game I expect him to get his right hand chopped off 5 minutes before tip off and end up with 22/13 and the win.

Where is Amare Stoudemire? That is why Tim Duncan should be listed as a Center instead of a PF so that Lebron will be an NBA first team.

Anyway, Congratulations Dirk but the Cavaliers might have a huge chance playing in the NBA Finals while you are at home watching in your Tivo.

Dirk did deserve it...but it's hillarious how all the articles discussing it are 50% dedicated his first round flameout and what a disgrace it is for MVP to be that big of a choker. About as Pyrrhic a victory as winning that sort of award could be.

I might have had T-Mac in the fifth place but that list is hard to argue with.

Tracy Mcgrady is a big time choker than Dirk Nowitski the guy never make it in the 2nd round of the NBA playoffs.

You cannot get Lebron out of that lists because among those top 5 he has the chance to make it in the NBA Finals and mybe the Cavaliers will the help of God and some suprising luck might win the NBA Championship and Bron as Finals MVP.

Then nexts year Lebron will not play for the USA TEAM so that he can concentrate his time in winning his 1st of many Maurice Podoloff Trophy.

Regular season award.
How they do in the playoffs has nothing to do with who deserved to win.

I'm really surprised Bron got neither a 1st nor a 2nd place vote.

MVP is deserved for Dirk

Voting results seem pretty good, though I don't understand why Duncan is so far behind Kobe, or that he got no 1st place votes (I would have expected at leasta couple).
