It will be out of Durant and Lebron til Kobe retires. Miami and Thunder will win enough games to back the choice of these two players and they are a cut above Kobe, despite Kobe playing well to start the year.
you mean like in 2003 when kobe averaged 30/7/6 on a 50+ win lakers team
and tim duncan averaging 23/12/3 won mvp because the spurs had the #1 seed
it was obvious kobe out performed duncan that year. with the 2 months averaging 40ppg, the all time record 12 threes, the 9 straight 40+ point games, and he was 1st team all defense same as tim
but the better teams representative won mvp because record is worth more than individual statistics
