He SHOULD get it according to my evaluation of his performance this year. The "tie-breaker" for people who wouldn't vote for Kobe necessarily tends to be which dude wins the Western conference. So win on Tuesday, and that should just about do it.

It's gonna be really shocking for the next generation of basketball fans that see old footage and documentaries of one KOBE BEAN BRYANT to find out that he never won an MVP award. This dude, when his career is over. could very well go down as the greatest basketball player of all time. That would just boggle the mind.

i would imagine he would get it, but something bothers me about the hate he gets in the national media.

i get the feeling some people, and i dont know who makes up the mvp voting panel, but i think some just wont vote for him no matter what, be it:

winning so much so young
legal problems of the past
fued with shaquille
anti-west coast bias

if he doesnt get it i will be pissed.

Yes.. because that would create a good fit to most criterias...

Dont want to give it to KB when the Lakers were loosing.... well give it to him now because he is a stellar player and has catapulted his team to the top...

Is he arguably the best player in the league.. I would personally say so...

Did he win the west? In your senario, he would have his team at number one, in one of the most competitive conferrence ever...

Is KB making his team mates better.. I would say that he is and many of his subtle ways are not necessarily highlighted...

and etc.. and etc..


If CP3 gets the award, there is no one that could say he was not worthy. The difficult aspect about this award, Is that you can NOT win it, and still have been deserving, and the one that does win it can equally have deserved it.

So while I would love for KB to win, its not a fallacy if CP3 takes it...

I think Kobe's already locked it up, I think a combination of having completely earned it and being the best player not to win it will factor into the voters minds. i don't want to hear a bunch of "this is an outrage" from lakers fans if cp3 wins though, the kid is just as deserving as kobe has been.

I have nothing against chris paul, but if there was going to be an outrage, it would be that Kobe still doesn't have an MVP, not that Paul won one.

Then again, Co-MVP's wouldn't be so bad either.

Thats something the media should consider.

I believe Kobe will win it though.

I actually disagree with that.... it should only be one person.

Well to be honest everyone

kobe bryant deserves the MVP as much as everyone else in the race.......but there is something deep down inside me and i hope its wrong but its sayin kobe isnt gonna win the MVP and i dont know why but everytime they talk about it on ESPN or before the games they always say Chris Paul has done a tremedous job in turning around his team........that may be true
but i can remember the past two years the lakers were in the same ship as the nuggets and the warriors are in now fighting for that 8th spot (it wasnt as tight tho) and now look at us we have rose to the top of the toughest conference race in the history of the league and kobe bryant hasnt had to do that much you know why?? because he has made his teamates better he has installed in them the work ethic of a champion and thats why kobe bryant #24 of the Los Angeles Lakers should be the NBA's MVP.............

The media does not get into a room, discuss who should be MVP and then come to a consensus. They send in their votes, which are then counted. The possibility of co-MVP is basically impossible. There is no way that they will end up with the same number of votes unless the voting is orchestrated, and that is not going to happen.

It really shoudnt matter if they win the last game or not. One game should not affect what the voters think, but unfortunately, I'm sure it will. I'm sure there are those who are still undecided on who to vote for so they are basing it on the seasons last few games. I dont like it, but thats how it is

That my friend is a travesty. The Logo deserved to at least get one...


I feel the same way about KB. I hope just for the sake of his talent and delivery at crunch moments that he gets one.
