Whoever is in charge in Phoenix

Jerry Colangio

Now I like Iverson, but all thuis Iverson for MVP talk is just outta line lol. He's on a .500 team that might not even make the playoffs.

Mine:
MVP: co-MVP Nash/Shaq (there are cases for both and it's just so tough)
ROY: Ben Gordon
MIP: Bobby Simmons
6th Man: Stackhouse
COY: Scott Skiles (amazing job going from 0-9 to the fourth seed, simply a great coaching job) although McMillan is a close, close second.
Personally I don't think D'Antoni is even close. He got Steve Nash and he basically does everything. D'Antoni just tells them to run/gun and play hard. I could do that.
Executive: Billy Pfund (miami heat) If you can land shaq for lamar, odom, brian grant, and caron butler. You are a damn good Executive.
Hell we could have given them Walker, Howard, and Damp for him but they wouldn't take it. Stupid lakers

6MOY: Stackhouse

Coach: George Karl (although I can't believe I actually said that - he's been amazing)

Exec: If it ain't Riley it shouldn't be given out.

MFFL41: The MVP vote is a tough one. Both Shaq and Nash are important to their teams. I made my decision based on Phoenix's record.

DrBio: Do they set a minimum number of games one must coach to get the COY? If not my vote is definitely for Karl.

Amare missed a third of last season. That was a major part of the big collapse in Phoenix last season.

MVP-Shaq- He makes spares like Damon Jones seem like good players.
Sixth man - Ben Gordon he is mr. clutch in the 4th quarter. he is a big reason the Bulls are back in the playoffs.
MIP- Dan Dickau
All NBA selections
1st team
Shaq
Dirk
Duncan
Allen Iverson- Has had his best season as a pro.
Nash
All five have had MVP type seasons.
Second team
Amare Stoudamire- The second best center in the league. He is second in the NBA in dunks.
KG- Still mr. everything for the T-Wolves.
Marion-mr. everything for the Suns. Scores, rebounds and is their best defender.
Kobe- on a horrible team.
Lebron- He is a great player on a struggling team.

Yao Ming- a 19 point 8 rebound guy. He has had subtle improvements in his game. Probably unfair expectations for him this year.
Elton Brand- a 20 point 10 rebound guy for the Clips.
Vince Carter- He has been great since he came to the Nets.
Kobe- a very dissapointing season for this superstar. He wanted to run the show and he got his wish.
Gilbert Arenas

there's no doubt about it. Very tough choice.

If I had to absolutely choose it would be Shaq because Nash has Johnson, Amare, Marion, and Q Rich.

Shaq has Wade, Haslem, Damon Jones and Eddie Jones.

It's going to be interesting to see what fowards make the first all NBA team. I think Dirk's a lock but either Garnett or Duncan are going to be left out.

NASH IS NOT THE MVP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God, I'm so sick of this, and it's disgusting because he'll probably get it. Look, in order for someone to be the most valuble player they have to at least be the best player on their team. Nash isn't even close. Shawn Marion is by far the best player on that team. MVP's have to score, rebound, play defense, and lead their teams. I'm sorry, but dishing out a lot of assists when you have Amare Stoudemire, Shawn Marion, Joe Johnson, and Quentin Richardson, while paying no attention to defense, is nowhere near enough to make him MVP. Shaq's stats aren't as great as they've been in the past, and Wade may be the all around better player, but Shaq's mere presense automatically makes whatever team he's on a contender. You could just as easily put any number of players in Wade's place and that team would still be a contender. Shaq however is irriplaceable. Nobody compares, not Yao Ming or anyone else. Kobe had to learn that the hard way this season. Now, of course, my vote would go to Dirk, but if it's between Shaq and Nash, it's Shaq. Nash should not be on that list.

Ricky Davis should win 6th man...

16 points
3 rebounds
3 assists
46% from the field

...and he's been a go to player in the 4th despite playing with Paul Pierce. I doubt he can overcome the Ben Gordan hype machine and his reputation.

Edit to add that a big reason Ben Gordon doesn't start is because he's somewhat of a defensive liability. Davis on the other hand is the best perimeter defender on the Celtics.

I would have no problem with Ricky Davis winning it. But I like Gordon because he has dominated at times and won the Bulls some games with buzzer beaters and amazing 4th quarter performances.

Ben Gordon is 11th in points per 48 minutes, while Ricky Davis is 37th.

Says who?

The award should be a guage of which player provided the most value to his team. Shawn Marion may very well be the best player on the suns, I don't know. For all I know, Paul Shirey may be the most talented player on the team. But according to the plus/minus statistics, Nash, though not the most valuable player in the league, has certainly been the most valuable player to the Suns.

Actually all MVPs have to do is provide value to their team which ever way they can. If a player couldn't play defense or score, but was somehow able to grab 35 rebounds a game, and the plus/minus guaged that was the most valuable contribution in the league, he would be the MVP regardless of what he couldn't do.

According to the Roland ratings, whatever he's doing is good enough to make him the best candidiate for MVP excepting 5 players ahead of him.

Besides, you talk about Joe Johnson and Quentin Richardson like they are elite players. Both of them were bench fodder on bad teams who are being made to look spectacular because they are playing with a real point guard who's having a career year. It's called making your teammates better.

I never said Joe Johnson and Quentin Richardson were elite players. But they are great shooters; more scorers for Nash to pass to. I'm sorry, but simply out assists on a team full of scorers doesn't compare to what Shaq does merely by being there. And I think someone at least should be the best player on their team to be MVP. Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Shaquille O'Neal, Allen Iverson, Michael Jordan, Karl Malone.... Those are just a few of the players that have been given the award in the last ten years or so. All of those guys (with the exception of maybe Shaq) were unquestionable, undeniably, undoubtedly the best players on their team. Yes, Nash is having a career year, and undeniably makes his teammates better by getting them open looks. But that team is winning because they have an incredible amount of offensive talent that needed a point guard to orchestrate the offense. Shaq makes any team he's on a contender. Shaq could turn the Atlanta Hawks into playoff contenders. Sure, he needs a player like Wade or Kobe to win a title, but by himself he automatically gets any team into the playoffs.

That's about all he does for the Lakers now that Kobe makes personnel decisions.
