With the criteria set out from the previous "name" post (indispensible) plus statistics, here's what my thoughts are around who should be the MVP of the NBA. Oh yeah, what's the point of not including the most important games of the season, the playoffs, in the voting? Anyway, here's how the "leaders" fared in their last round of the playoffs ( when it counts the most).
#1 LeBron James: 26.7 ppg / 6.4 rpg / 7.6 apg in Conf. Semi-Finals v. Celtics
James get my meaningless nod and aluminum foil trophy. Enjoy.
