Who do you think is more derserving. Its early so I'df understand if you dont have any top canidates right now. But Nash with his 20ppg 4rb 12ast and shooting over 50% from the field and 3pt arc plus 90% FT is insane. Does he have to avg 30ppg 20asp 10rbs and shoot over 70% fg, 70% 3pt and 100% ft to get the award....it cant just be based on whether he gets to the NBA finals. MVP = regular season. No barring on the playoffs...it just so happens the past mvp champs have got to the nba finals.
You're right, its a regular season MVP award but dont you think a legit 3time
MVP can also step up and take his loaded team to the finals. In the past, thats what most MVPs did..especially three time winners..why? because multiple time MVP winners are that
good, true legends. theres a thing about the playoffs, thats when true greatness is measured. Multiple MVP winners in the past possessed that greatness, what does it say if Nash doesnt do it? Hes a great player sure but are you really worthy of 3 MVPs if you cant step up on the greatest stage?
