I DID NOT say that the Suns are NOT good... I said not AS good... quote me with right next time, k? By the way, while the SUns may not be AS good, with a whole new offensive makeup, Nash has led his team to 2nd place in the conference (western i might add), with 50+ wins. So, Nash losing Amare and his team being not as good by like 5 games, while Lebron loses Hughes and all the Cavs fans can only whine and point to LeBron's stats and a playoff birht (FINALLY IN THE EASTERN CONFERENCE). Also, don't try to say that it's enough to win the MVP award for Leborn with his stats and recent streak all the same while connoting that Nash isn't the true MVP b/c his team isn't as great as last year's team without Amare.
So you wont penalize a guy for loosing a player, but you will praise them for not having a good player to help out? Doesnt work like that.
I'm not taking anything away from Lebron man. I know he's a great great player with great great stats. But, it's not his turn for the MVP. He has more hype than anyone in the NBA, but he's not the most deserving for the MVP. He's had an amazing stretch recently, but you can't swing the MVP in favor of him because of that ONE streak. I recall him getting booed by the Cleveland fans just about a month or so before the streak?
You have a player in Kobe who not only is an offensive machine who can make the shots of highest degree of difficulty, but plays great defense as well. When you play the Lakers you gameplan only for Kobe. When you gameplan for the Cavs, your focus is Lebron, but you must account for Ilgauskus (all star quality), Damon Jones (consistent 3 threat), good solid players in Drew Gooden, Marshall, and Murray.
Thank god we don't have people of great bias deciding the MVP either :roll:
