It's been shown time and again in recent years that players who lead their teams to 5th/6th seeds, no matter how impressive a feat that is, don't get the MVP. It almost always takes 55 wins and a top 3 seed in order to get an MVP these days.MeirToTheWise said:If Steve Nash keeps the Suns in the playoff race around 5-6th seed, I would see him getting it. Then again, I don't believe a point guard has ever gotten the MVP two years in a row, or have even got 2 MVP awards.
I'd say Lebron for all practical purposes.
How is TD the best statiscally? The PER ratings vs opposing PER have Lebron equal with TD or even slightly better.Sir Patchwork said:Right now, It's Tim Duncan. He is the best statistically, and you know the Spurs will be one of the top teams.

Agred. LeBron would be 2nd, with Elton Brand right there too.Pioneer10 said:Note: I think TD is a better player then Lebron but James is really having an MVP - calibre season so far.
