Lebron has been player of the month for every month this season...are you really asking this question? lol...it's unanimous at this point that it'll be Lebron's, and he could sit out the remainder of the season too
He or Melo should win it. Lebron is on a super stacked team with a couple of superstar teammates in their primes and a great, all-around role/bench players. They'd win the East without Lebron and even if Bosh or Wade missed a bunch of games.
Melo and Kobe have good teams too (definitely not as good, not even close), but their teammates had injuries all season long. As crazy as it sounds, Kobe has had one of his best and most efficient seasons and was by far the most consistent Laker. And Melo has showed everyone that he is the best scorer in the league and greatly improved his defense and leadership skills. You are a hater or don't watch games if you don't see it.
MVP for 'taking' a team with Gasol, Howard, Nash into the 8th seed?
Exactly. Kobe, Gasol, Nash and Howard would all be in the HOF if their careers ended tomorrow. No one on Utah, Houston, Golden State or Memphis can say the same. Not one sure-fire HOF player on any of those teams and the Lakers have FOUR!!! It's an utter embarrassment. They should at least be as good as the Clippers.
