Default What is your criteria for the MVP award?

The "Interesting question I saw on another board about KG possibly winning the MVP" thread created by Konex has got me to wondering...

What is your MVP criteria? What guidelines do you use to decide who you feel should receive the award? Also, since the last three MVP’s are the ones that are most highly debated, who would have voted for during the previous three seasons?



Edit: I want to make it clear to all that I did not create this thread with the idea in mind that it would become a Kobe Bryant thread so please don't make it about KB24

best player plain and simple...by definition is someone if you remove from a team would drastically diminish the posibilities of winning!!!

since Barkley won MVP instead of Michael Jordan, because his team had a better record than Jordan, NBA's criteria is allstar player(best in his team) on the team with best record.

My criteria is same as I wrote up there ^.

BUT I think Kobe deserves atleast 1 MVP award. His team is one of the worst in the league without him but he keeps getting them to the playoffs. So you could say this to my criteria: The best player on the team that gets his team the best record they can with the pieces they have. Think like this: How good will team X be without player X. Thats how I think. I think Dirk deserved MVP since its a regular season award. Dirk was the best player on his team and his team got one of the best regular season record in history.

Literally what the term MVP stands for. Most Valuable Player. IMO Kobe is MVP, he carries his team so much by himself, yet gets hate for it. I think he has started to pass more this season, with less points, but is still making significant impact. So yeah.

I disagree. Kobe is arguably the best scorer in the league (I would argue that Yao Ming is about the same, though), but he doesn't have enough of complete game. He's decent in the other areas, but nothing special. It's hard for me to have a shooting guard or small forward as the MVP because they are somewhat limited to just being scorers. Most of the time. That's why a Larry Bird or MJ are so special. But overall you have to have possession of the game to win games, so guys who rebound the ball, don't turn it over, and are good scorers (though not necessarily racking up 50 point games) are the best.

Simple.

MVP = Most Valuable Player

A player who their team cannot live without.

Kobe Bryant should of have won it.

Phoenix would still be pretty decent without Stevie, Mavs would possibly still be a playoff team without Dirk.

The guy who helps his team more to win in the regular season.
Two key words: help, because the guy has to cover a very important and not easy replaceable role in his own team, and win, because that players has to lead his team to some important success.
The best combination of team results and relative importance in the team leads to the MVP.

Its sort of ever changing, but I say:

I say the best player/leader that is on a team with more than 55 wins and within about 5 games of the league's best team (with the exception of when the league leading team is not made around a superstar such as the Pistons of 06 if they were to have been more than 5 games in first).
