Durant was much closer (in terms of value) to LeBron last year than Parker is to LeBron this year.

I'd like to see the Spurs play with Duncan & Ginobili, but without Parker & see how they fare. I bet the results would be much different than they are with Duncan & Ginobili being out & Parker leading the team.

Its gonna be a crime when LeBron wins another MVP when Tony Parker & his Spurs are having this kind of season. Even I'm tired of the Spurs never getting any recognition anymore.

So LeBron doesn't deserve mvp because he's built like a tank ?

Of course Rose's MVP has something to do with voting this season. Its called history. How else do you decide player X should win the MVP this year if you don't consider what and how MVP award winners were given out in the past

They have the best record because of the system. Spurs gave Heat a hard time without Duncan, Ginobli and Parker. Heat were coasting, but still. Also, the Spurs beat Chicago with Parker, Duncan and Ginobli. Their MVP is Popovich.

Yea, didn't you here? You gotta equate body size into MVP consideration.

Yes the vague "system" gave Tony Parker more wins while Lebron is playing the best 2, 3 and 4 in the league.

25 ppg, 7.7 apg, 4 rpg, 1 spg>>>>>>>>>>> 21 ppg, 7.7 apg, 3 rpg, 1 spg. Not to mention Rose actually did carry his team at times and had no second option equal to current Duncan or Manu. Not to mention Lebron this year is better than Lebron of 2010 when Rose won it. Same with Durant. In other words... Parker has no case. The Spurs also didn't have a 21 win turnaround like the Bulls did. They have consistently been good even without Parker being the man.

Good post.

What I am saying is using a random year when Derrick Rose won to justify your case is meaningless. I can find many many more years that justifies mine.

A random year

3 out of the last 4 MVPs played on teams with the highest regular season record.

Also... most valuable player, meaning who is the most valuable player in the NBA. Who is the guy that people would most desire on their team. Who is the guy that GM's would be most willing to pay for. Who is the most sought after player in the league? Not who is most valuable to their own team, but who is the league's most valuable basketball player?

It's clearly LeBron James.

OP is a fakkit. And so is Yao Mings Foot(we already knew that). LeBron's 4th MVP is a virtual lock.

Next.

That might be what you wish it to mean but that's not how its actually been awarded historically.

Correlation does not imply causation. 3 of the past 4 MVP's being on the best team means nothing.

What happened with that other MVP? Why was it not 4 of 4?
