LOL @ TP's MVP candidacy lasting about as long as a Big Show title reign. :lol: It's ok. He just got Jacked. It happened to the Heat earlier this year too. PEACE.

(Tp) He was / is never considered "the" MVP candidate just a MVP candidate . Mainly because you can't just talk about one guy, even though this will be a one man race

Tony Parker's case was hurt when they all sat out of the Miami game and the Spurs almost won it. The system works.

Kyrie Irving should be over TP in the MVP race.

I noticed the MVP chatter slowed down on these threads as soon as lebron stopped coasting and turned it up a notch. What happened to all of the Durant advanced stats supporters? Any knicks fans still think melo is more of an MVP than lebron?

The scary part is Lebron turns it up heading into the playoffs. Hard imagining he still has like 2 more gears he can hit.

If you look at the historical list of past NBA MVP winners the list has very little to no aberrations. They're all essentially the most elite players of NBA history.

Even Stave Nash who some have questioned in the past has proven himself to be a top player in NBA history and will go down and has already actually gone down as one of the greatest pg's ever.

So this talk by some people of whatever team has the best record and whatever player is "the best" on that team automatically equals MVP, it doesn't. The MVP award is still reserved for the best of the best in the league.

The Spurs right now are operating more like the 2004 Pistons did, a great team altogether but one that didn't depend wholly on a single player only.

How is durants season just being swept under the rug.
His team has a better record than the heat with one less allstar.
Lebron gets all this better season than jordan talk but he isn't even top 2 in scoring....at his own position.
Durant is avg 1.2 blocks and 1.6 steals.
vs lebrons, .8 blocks and 1.7 steals.

Durant is the redheaded stepchild to the league because he outscores lebron at will and that interferes with lebrons jordan image.
So lebron should be awarded again fot being on a superteam with 3 allstars but durant has the better record with less allstars but he's less than TP.

They have for most of the year. Right now the heat are 38-14 vs 40-15 for the thunder. Practically identical and the thunder have one less allstar
Also when Rose won the mvp all we heard was how weak the division was. Why no talk about the trash division the heat are in?

The Heat are 2-0 vs OKC and they are 20-5 vs the west this year. They trash too?

and durant was actually in the lead for MVP talks for most of the year...until lebron ramped it up and the heat capped it off by utterly outplaying the thunder on national television.

You're argument is stuck in janurary. Tony Parker is all the rage now you should hop on that...

The bulls were 23-7 vs the west that year so what's the heat's record vs the west supposed to mean?

You claimed that the Heat just beat up on a weak division. When Miami trounce the big bad West. Stop comparing the Bulls the Heat and Lebron to Rose, that's just insulting.

Lol this happens all the time lebron totally outpla durant and wins and the trolls come back couple weeks later and say durant outplayed lebron, but his team lost. Listen stat padding for 40 points is cute 3 weeks later. At the time it looked like the emptiest 40 point game ive ever seen
