I would argue that West is the clear #2 on that team, he is having a great season. But I do agree that Paul should at least be in the discussion with only 1 or 2 other guys.

Uh oh...

Garnett's play hasn't improved either. He's was brought on to a team that already had Paul Pierce and had acquired Ray Allen. He's has quite a bit of help.

In fact, I support him, Camby and King James for it

Did i read that right? Is that Camby's name being thrown in as a frontrunner with Lebron and Paul? hmmmm....

That is the most ridiculous thing i have seen on this board for a while, and thats saying somthen...

What do you think? The only other player that can actually threaten based on this criteria would be Kobe. Dirk is not winning it again and one can make an argument (although weak) about Duncan being the obvious best player on his team.

Based on the way I believe it should be, Duncan should be MVP. He should've been the previous year, and Shaq should have won every year before that and after Mike.

Hes not the only star on his team. David West is one of the best PF in the league. Tyson Chandler whos a good center and Peja. He still should win MVP.

Default Re: Based on recent criteria, Chris Paul is your new MVP

As of now, I would say Chris Paul is the league's most valuable player. Kobe has the stats yes, but his team is just a little shaky. New Orleans is the single MOST UNDERRATED TEAM in the league. I like when underrated teams do well, and I'm starting to like that Hornets team, they are fun to watch, talented, and they are an underdog.

KG and Chris Paul are the frontrunners for MVP.

Agreed with Paul as MVP. New Orleans success is stunning.

Chris Paul is in the running at a bad time. Nash and Dirk's competition wasn't as strong as it is now. KG is the frontrunner because of the media circus Celtics, and if the Lakers keep up their play, Kobe is garner a lot of attention.

If the Hornets keep it up, I see no reason why he shouldn't be up there. I would have no problem giving it to him.

paul is the mvp of the hornets but for the entire league? i just dont think new orleans is on the national radar. lebron is my front runner for mvp right now,i cant consider garnett because he plays with 2 other all-stars who have both impacted that team.kobe has to get some consideration but if the lakers fall way off while bynum is out kobe is a no go.i just dont see anybody close to lebron right now.

So let me get this straight: Paul shouldn't be MVP...because he and his team aren't part of the hype machine?
