NBA MVP Race: Top 3



NBA.com has a look at the top 20 players in the race for 2008 NBA MVP. Numero uno is a wise choice, with Dwight Howard topping the list. He's definitely the man behind Orlando's success as he mans the middle. Coming in second is Kevin Garnett, who's also doing everything as planned in Boston. And thirdly is the guy who's been playing out of this world lately, Lebron.

Lebron is averaging 31.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 8.1 assists. That's nearly a triple double a game, which is nothing short of incredible. You'd think based on that stat line that Lebron would be #1 in the MVP running. Howard averages a double double as does KG in the points and rebounds category. But Lebron still has a good shot to win it this year. He doesn't have the talent around him that KG does, and Dwight Howard plays a more dominant position. Lebron however is dominating those 3 stats and it really helps his team capture wins. Kinda reminds you of another guy who used to put the team on his back and will them to win..

Kobe is amazing. However, I still think Lebron is the most impressive and talented player in the league. However, if the Cavs don't win at least 50 game, Lebron won't win. If the Lakers don't at least 54 games, Kobe won't win.

As of early January, KG is the favorite.

The difference between Kobe and Lebron, and the success of their respective teams is simple. Kobe had to change his game in order to help his team play better, and it can be said that the Lakers current success is do more to the players around him (the acquisition of Derek Fisher, and the improved play of Bynum and others). Lebron has carried the load for his team, and gotten better results (Finals last year), and better STATS. 44 shot attempts in ONE game is really helping your team? Stick with "best scorer" Kobe fans- his play this season isn't natural, it's just (finally) "coached."

Lebron deserved the MVP last season, and may get it this year.
