I'm German and I think Dirk clearly deserved the MVP last year:). There are three things you have to look at when you choose the MVP, IMO. The performance of the player (stats), team wins and importance to their team. Ok let's see.
Stats: Dirk > Nash (i believe Dirk had the 2 highest per behind wade)
Wins: Dirk > Nash (67 > 61)
Importance to the team: the only thing i know is that Nash has the most talented team in the league. But on the other hand we know that they tend to fall apart when nash is hurt. So this is definately arguable.
So I don't understand how people can say he clearly didn't deserve it. If you don't like Dirk or if you think he didn't deserve it because he choked in the postseason, ok i can understand it. But if you think he didn't derserve it because of his regular season play, then i don't see how you can come to that conclusion.
