Vote for who you believe is the Kings MVP going into the break and tell us why.

I voted Buddy because he's emerged as the Kings #1 option on offense.

Buddy Buckets for me. De’Aaron Fox is a close second for me just because he’s really the engine of this high paced offense. The way he can push the tempo and control the speed of the game is the biggest reason why our offense is successful but Buddy’s scoring has been a revelation too. He’s single handedly kept us in games and carried the scoring load all year so gets the MVP vote from me. Really excited about this backcourt, their energy is insane.

Fox was a real star for the first several months. He kind of settled down for the past month or so.

Buddy has been pretty consistent, emerged as a legit 20 point scorer and an absolute 3PT elite shooter.

Bogdan is reliable and solid. But he hasn't given the same oomph as Buddy has so far.

Bagley has been improving ever since day 1 but I don't think he is the Kings' MVP.

HM: Willie was excellent for the first month or so but returned back to his conformist-self later on.

I say Buddy for me too.

Buddy was the obvious choice and will win hands down. But then I saw Joerger's name and hedged. He has gotten a lot of criticism, but in the end showed that he knew what he was doing. Even with Buddy scoring at such a high clip, this team and the young players would not have been as successful without a coach that made them earn their opportunities. It's translated onto the court and built character in the players and team better than any of us dared dream.

I think that was my bad.

We had some posters commenting for Vlade and i wanted them to participate in the vote.

I didnt know adding Vlade to the list of options would reset current votes.

I will ask everyone to resubmit their vote. Buddy WAS running away with it at the time I edited the poll.

Sorry about that everyone.

Buddy has been great but I went with Fox. He's the best all-around player and his improvement from last season is the biggest reason this team has a shot at breaking the playoff drought.

Vlade for me, his trading strategy finally was justified

Buddy.

While Fox is our best player I believe Buddy's consistency throughout the "first half" has been amazing which is why I am giving him the minor vote over Fox.

I'll go Vlade. It turns out all along he assembled real talent that just went misused during the beginning. Also, I think coach Joerger deserves a nod too for him adjusting to the talent he had. It also sounds like he might have had a hand in picking up Barnes which I think will turn out to be a solid addition.

I can't bring myself to Vlade as long as he's repeating this idea that Bagley can play SF. There will just always still be a part of me that thinks he's gotten lucky until s*** like that disappears completely.

I think Buddy has been our best player so far, but given that we could theoretically replace him with Bogie to a degree, and that Fox is the team's engine, I'd say Fox is our most valuable player.

Vlade's made some good moves but at the same time lets not forget we don't have our pick this year from an absolutely awful trade.
