Its interesting how some people rank Yao as a top 5 MVP candidate, whilst others lean towards Tmac.

I personally think Tmac would win it if it comes down to it.

Paul, a dark horse? OK i understand that the Hornets have the potential to really surprise people next year, but Paul winning the MVP, i dont think so. OR, are you just saying he might get some votes here and there.

As for Aldridge, i hope you are right, he is one of my favourite young players.

I think Durant has ROY on lock too, but im hoping Thornton steps up big time in the absence of Brand.

I just made a couple of picks that would make me look like a genius if it comes true.

But seriously I think the hornets are going to kill it this year and paul will rack up a few votes because of that.

I don't think Garnett has a shot.. he has two other star players next to him and one in particular (Pierce) who will still be the leader of the team.

Wade- Unless the Heat have one of the best records in the L (which I doubt they will) I don't see it.

Dirk - If you think people went ballistic over Nash's back-to-backs, there would be riots if Dirk won back to backs.

I think each year there's a few players who really have a shot at winning MVP - arguably Nash, Dirk and Kobe last season - and then there's a few really good players who are mentioned anyway, despite not really having a chance to win.

I think Dirk will be in the latter bunch this season, he'll be mentioned as a candidate. Remember, lots of people mentioned Chris Bosh as an MVP candidate last season. But honestly, were the media really going to vote him the MVP over Nash or Dirk? No, but he was there to be talked about because he performed great. (Nothing at all against Bosh, he's a great player. Just using him as an example.)

So who do I predict will be in the elite group who really could win?
Kobe, Lebron and Wade if he plays a full season and the Heat have a decent record (remember he was putting up 29/5/8 on a FG% approaching .500 before the injury).
Who do I predict will get a mention?
The usual suspects - Nash, Duncan, Dirk, Arenas, Wade, Carmelo and the list goes on.

This isn't who I think will deserve it, it's who I think the media will ultimately vote for. And at this stage it's ridiculously early to be making these predictions, but it's fun :)
