Part of that revolves around MVP talk. Am I the only one who could care less about LeBron and MVP talk? Ask Dirk Nowitzki what winning MVP means. I just want my team to win, and for moves to be made to make us better. MVP is such an intangible thing. Winning basketball games is concrete. What does it mean at the end of the day? Who won the 1999 MVP? What about in 1992? Noone remembers these sort of things.
It would be nice if LeBron can pull it of, but I'm not obsessed or anything about it. I just don't place a lot of stock in the award, but maybe that's just me....
I haven't really kept up with the Cavs on t.v. period this season. I follow them every day in the newspaper, and on this board and such, but I couldn't be bothered to watch them.
I feel like last season was an embarrassment the way we were handled in the Finals, and I feel like it's a long shot that we'll get back. I'm completely frustrated with our front office's inability to make intelligent decisions.
As for the MVP thing? The whole award process just pisses me off. The award is supposed to go to the league's Most Valuable Player. Instead, it has to go to the best guy on a WINNING team. Which is about retarded.
Nobody generates more money for the NBA or puts up better stats consistently than Mr. James, no matter what I think of him or the Cavs. He shouldn't be penalized because the Cavs front office can't put the right pieces with him.
He should have gotten the award the last 2 years, if not 3, but he didn't because his record and team wasn't impressive enough.
I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that the award is a complete joke.
