We bloggers have come together again to show actual MVP and Rookie of the Year voters how it’s done. This is round 6… and we’re hosting this sucker right here (you can find past votes here). Joining me in the voting are these fine folks:
David Arnott: Rufus on Fire
Rob D: nbamate.com
Andrew Feinstein: Denver Stiffs
Wyn Douglas: Canis Hoopus
MyNetsForLife: Nets Daily
Brett Hainline: Queen City Hoops
Dan Feldman: Piston Powered
Royce Young: Daily Thunder
Jeff Sack: Slam Dunk Central and Le Basketbawl
Alex Boeder: BrewHoop
James Borbath: Dino Nation
Michael Schwartz: Valley of the Suns
Joshua Coleman: 3 Shades of Blue
Don Landrigan: With Malice
David Clark: The Dream Shake
College Wolf: TWolves Blog
Jeremy Schmidt: www.bucksketball.blogspot.com
Without further ado:
Lebron James (180 points)
DinoNation: I have run out of words. Can we just name him the MVP Elect and wait for his crowning at the end of the year
Jeff Sack: By the year 2030 there will be a replica of Mount Rushmore behind the Basketball Hall Of Fame in Springfield, Mass. instead of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt, this one will be comprised of Larry, Magic, Michael, and LeBron.
David Arnott: It feels like in any other year, Howard or Wade would be runaway choices for MVP at this point, but they’re damned to live in the LeBron Era
Kobe Bryant (145 points)
Clark: Though Laker fans probably want to put Bynum in the Hall of Fame after his 42 point/15 rebound game. It’s still Kobe’s team.
College Wolf: Bah! If only they’d stop winning games! In honor of the Lakers’ sterling record, I have again moved him up one spot for this edition. Don’t complain Lakers fans, at least I didn’t entirely leave him off the ballot out of spite.
Chris Paul (138 points)
Jeff Sack: If you watch Paul on an every night basis, you can actually see him evolving each game. Every time he is on the hardwood, he finds a new way to beat you.
Jeremy Schmidt: Chris Paul gives swagger to Peja Stojakovic. Putting swagger in a sentence with Peja Stojakovic is what an MVP is suppose to do.
Dwight Howard (135 points)
Sack: Can we all agree that Howard is hands down the best pure center in the Association in the present day era?
