Default Durant for MVP? What a joke. Lebron 4x!

This guy is a joke, swinging around his arm hoping to go to the foul line. On the other hand, Lebron James

I'm not a fan of Lebron, per say, but you can't deny what this guy is doing. The shots this guy makes on a nightly basis plus his passing = Leader for MVP

Should be 5 straight, but 2 sets of back-to-back MVP's ain't nothin' to sneeze at.

It's amazing that Durant still got 40 points after his horrible start. He did much better in the 2nd half and explode in the 4th, but it was too late by then. Durant even shot 50%.

LeBron was just much better.

That's ridiculous revisionist history. Not only was Rose deserving in '11 and won it unanimously with 113 out of a possible 121 1st place votes, but LeBron wasn't even second in the total points, with Dwight coming in second. LeBron wasn't the MVP that year, not even close. The debate the entire time was over Dwight vs. Rose, and rightfully so.

We all know Lebron is the best player in the league. No need to take shots at Durant.

Lebron was 2nd but reason he didnt win it is because he was still getting used to new situation and still not sure who's team it was ect.. Also alot of hatin on Lebron as Decision still fresh in minds of voters. Through all that he was still best player in the league anyway now it is Just more clear cut and obvious.

LeBron wasn't second. Dwight beat him in the points tally.

And again, what's the logic for LeBron to win it? Rose explodes for 25/8/4 and leads a team to 62 wins in which Noah and Boozer were injured for huge chunks of the season. LeBron joins a team that already had superstar Dwyane Wade and all star Chris Bosh and still can't match the win total of this young new super star. So I ask again, why should he have won it? The inferior record? The superior supporting cast? Not to mention though LeBron was the better player, Rose still came close to matching him statistically with 25/8/4 to LeBron's 27/7/7 or w/e it was.

It's still early. The media is very fickle and while it seems from a baskebtall standpoint, LeBron deserves it; if Durant closes out the year great and LeBron goes back to "normal" he very well may get it.

Because Rose wasn't anchoring the best defense on a team that clearly relied on defense to win games. He was a huge part of that team, but it won mainly by playing extremely physical defense and effective rebounding both of which Rose contributed to minimally.

Dwight and Bron deserved it over Rose that year IMO.

But he was carrying an offense that desperately needed him to survive. Miami was a great defensive team before LeBron got there too. LeBron added to that defense, but he didn't turn them into that great defensive team all of a sudden.

Rose was a joke of an MVP. Get over it.

If you wanna argue that Dwight, was the MVP, fine. Fcuk off with the Rose nonsense though. The dude was all media hype.
