Kevin Durant – One Dimensional MVP

The streets are buzzing. I’m going to agree with this. The future NBA commercial featuring him and some old black guy standing there talking about his future is creepy. That pissed off Seattle. Sorry, Seattle. That sucked just to watch. You’ll always have Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. And Shawn Kemp’s kids. And grunge. And a band formerly called “Mookie Blaylock” that became Pearl Jam. And Gary Payton’s trash talking. That was the ish back in the day.

Dwight Howard – Robust MVP?

There has been plenty of noise about this guy in Orlando. People across the Internet, who truly believe that they know more than the guys who actually write for the big leagues, claim that Howard should be the league MVP. He certainly has a case, but I’m not convinced that he is a front runner. This is his best chance yet to get one. The Magic recently had huge trades to improve the team. Will that be used against him when they cast their vote?

The NBA league MVP Criteria

I hear this from fans a lot trash talking each other, “It’s not my fault that your team sucks.” That’s not trash talking. That is just stating the obvious. Of course you’re not responsible. You place the blame on the general manager and players. Way to go, douche. He smiled while high fiving his friend. Then he posted his status to Facebook. I’m willing to bet he quoted himself and placed that underneath his default picture. Lame. Stupid. He had to be a Laker fan wearing a Kobe jersey.

No surprise here. It was LeBron's award to lose even before the season started, and the announcement will only make it official. The real question is whether or not LeBron can add a championship ring to his second Maurice Podoloff trophy. - CYE

Jeff Van Gundy: LeBron James WIll Win MVP Every Year Until He Retires

With more than a hint of sarcasm, Magic coach Stan Van Gundy gave his opinion on Sunday about the MVP race this season and beyond.

"You know how the vote's going to go. LeBron (James) will win the MVP every year until he retires," Van Gundy said.

Van Gundy was likely playing to the Cleveland media. But there's part of him that feels that the MVP — decided by the media — will be James' award to lose for a long time.

"LeBron has to go into the year and basically lose the MVP. You guys have decided he's the MVP," Van Gundy said.

"I don't even know if Michael Jordan was as hyped as he is, and then [James] goes out and exceeds it."

Van Gundy says that fans and media "view players primarily as scorers … and view most everything else as secondary," meaning they overlook Van Gundy's guy, Dwight Howard, the favorite to repeat as defensive player of the year.
