I actually think Rose deserved it. People look at what he's done since and use it to confirm that him getting the award was a joke. It wasn't.

I think Dirk Should have gotten Nash's second MVP.

I've defended Nash too many times to get into it again in depth.

TL;DR: GOAT level offensive impact, GOAT shooter, played in 2006 without Stoudemire and still led them to 54 wins.

I'm not huge on Rose's MVP, I'd have preferred Dwight/LeBron, but the Bulls posted 62 (?) wins and from a value standpoint it's completely understandable why he won.

Curry will deserve his if he wins.

Curry deserves it; Rose didn't.

The problem is that were comparing them to other players who are flat out better than these PGs.

I think it's a case of hindsight being 20/20; now that you can look back and see that neither Rose nor Nash even made the finals, it's easy to say they 'didn't deserve it'.

If Curry and the Warriors go on to win a championship, you'll never hear another peep about him not deserving the MVP.

Beyond that, Rose gets hit extra hard because he's not been close to an MVP caliber player since he won, (due to injuries).

Nash gets hit extra hard because he probably didn't deserve either award in reality.

I think Curry deserves it. Rose borderline deserved it. I don't think Nash deserved it.

05 Nash and current Curry are both deserved.

06 belongs to Dirk. 11 for Rose?

It's usually a Shaq/Dirk argument depending on the year.

Kobe has an argument in 06, Dirk has one in 05.

Shaq has no argument over Nash in either year.

oh so Kobe has an argument in 2006 but Dirk doesn't? Dirk's case in 2006 is much better than in 2005, you just don't like to see Kobe losing out.
