Has Melo been better than Harden this year? Serious question. The Rockets are 20-14 compared to 23-11, so there's not a huge difference in record, especially when you consider the difference in competition.

I think Kobe's been better than Melo too, but the Lakers are a mess, and Kobe is unfortunately the only bright spot on that team right now.

For me:

1-3. LeBron/Paul/Durant (pick 'em...these are the only guys that deserve legitimate consideration for MVP imo)
4. Harden/Melo

1a. Lebron
1b. KD
2. CP3

The rest
TD/Melo/Kobe

James Harden has been playing well. But strictly speaking, his performance as a Guard doesn't seem that much more impressive than either Kyrie Irving or Stephen Curry to me.

He is top 3, but i will be damn pissed if he wins MVP whilst KD is putting up numbers on absurd efficiency and Lebron fills it up at his usual rate.

Nash won MVP putting up 15 and 11 as well because he led the Suns to the best record in the league and no one was expecting it. Same can be said for the Clippers.



Injuries also happened to the suns and they still shined behind nash. The clippers roster is stronger than ever. Literally.

Yep, this is how i have it, with Melo being 4th, Kobe 5th, TD 6th.

It will be interesting to see if Melo is suspended and misses games, and if so, will the Knicks continue to play poorly.

I say its between Lebron and Chris Paul right now, with Durant 3rd and Melo 4th because of his recent missed games, and bad shooting night. Somebody from the Spurs have to get some recognition at least.. imagine Duncan winning MVP at this stage in his career

None. I don't think your MVP stock can rise until you have a winning record. PEACE.

I think Duncan should win DPOY. Amazing he never won it in his career.

Clippers are missing both Billups and Hill.

None when you were predicted to win the West over the Thunder.

When your team is 15-18 you shouldn't have any MVP stock to begin with.

True. Lakers record is so bad that Kobe isn't even in the discussion.

Lebron in the lead for me due to his competition falling from their hot starts (looking at Melo).

1. Lebron
2. Durant
3. Chris Paul


4. Melo

Durant can be forgiven for losing to the Wiz since Lebron has ALSO lost to them (the Wiz... who knew?)

Chris Paul needs a #1 record to make up for his stats, which do matter in MVP discussion.

What on earth??? Are you talking about the team success (in huge part due to him missing a few games) because he has had basically nothing but good games recently except last night.. FFS the guy won player of the week
