    MVP - LeBron James

    Easy pick. Best player in the world, hate on him and the Heat all you want, but there is no doubt he is carrying this team now. Ridiculous numbers.

    Runner-up - Chris Paul
    Honorable mention - Kevin Durant (Putting Durant as low as third isn't going to be popular and even though he has the stats on CP3, no one, and i mean no one, is a better floor general than CP3.


    Defensive Player of the Year - Joakim Noah

    Noah has been playing like a leader and anchor, holding it down, not only the paint, but he can guard 4 positions. Bulls still one of the best defenses thanks to him.

    Runner-up - Serge Ibaka
    Honorable mentions - Andre Iguodala, Tony Allen, Paul George


    Move Improved Player - James Harden

    The jump from 6th man to superstar...

    Runner-up - Paul George
    Honorable mentions - Jrue Holiday, Omer Asik, Nikola Vucevic, Greivis Vasquez


    6th Man of the Year - Kevin Martin

    Other guys might have a slight edge on the scoring, but the way he came in and had to replace last year's 6th Man of the Year, along with first place Thunder, he's doing just fine. Not to mention he's been a starter his entire career.

    Runner-up - Jamal Crawford
    Honorable mentions - J.R. Smith, Ryan Anderson (not sure if he qualifies since he's started a lot of games as well)


    Rookie of the Year - Damian Lillard

    Everyone assumed it would be Anthony Davis before the season started, but we're looking at a future superstar in Damian Lillard.

    Runner-up - Anthony Davis


    Coach of the Year - Gregg Popovich

    I'd give it Pop every year. Not only for his x's and o's, but how he handles minutes, his defensive schemes, and you'll never have an ego problem on his team.

    Runner-up - Tom Thibodeau
    Honorable mentions: Mark Jackson, Scott Brooks

    Lebron will NEVER get an MVP nod from me until he does 2 things:

    Stops being a joke when it matters most.

    and

    Actually leads a team rather than picks one to coat-tail off of.

    Til then? Nope. Most valuable my azz.


    Doesn't help that he's the most pampered player in the league. Put Kevin Durant on that squad and they don't even need David Stern to win it all for them.

    Lol only Deuce thinks Miami is Wade's team. Someone hasn't been paying attention or they would know Wade hasn't been a top 5 player for 2 years now.

    The Heat are clearly BronBrons team. I'm a huge hater of LeBron, but you gotta respect his play on the court. Physically unstoppable.

    Also, remember MVP isn't always "the best player" in the NBA, it's the most valuable to his team.

    I don't think it's "Wade"s team... unless the game is on the line. Then it's anyone BUT Lebron's team.

    Lol keep telling yourself that even though since 06, in situations to either tie or take the lead in the final minute of the 4th quarter or overtime, LeBron has the third highest field goal percentage, right below Rudy Gay and Dirk. And the third most attempted shots, below only Kobe and Durant...and way above Wade.

    Keep telling us LeBron isn't a MVP 'cuz he doesn't demand to chuck up every shot in the last 2 minutes. By your logic, Magic Johnson wasn't a MVP either.

    Keeping telling us LeBron is terrible at shooting even though he's statistically a good midrange shooter.

    Where did you rank LeBron again? Outside of the top 5 was it? LOL

    Oh, and how are your Lakers doing? :D

    I never understand people who say Lebron can shoot. Actually I do, it's because you read boxscores/watch espn and judge off of that. The only reason he's a statistically good midrange shooter is because people let him shoot from midrange....When lebron loses a step his game is going to fall apart.

    How the hell would I determine he's a good shooter from reading his boxscore o_O

    Lol great DW rebuttal, if you disagree with me, you watch too much sportscenter. Dude, I don't even have cable.
