if that's your argument than your only argument is for nash, not bryant. you can't give the mvp to a player on a crappy team unless they're just so dominating that you have no choice. the lakers suck... what was kobe valuable for?

if you want to make the argument that the suns, a good team, would be lucky to make the playoffs without nash and that's why he should have gotten the mvp, i'll probably agree with you. but to give it to a guy on a mediocre team that doesn't make his teammates better? no chance.

I'm not necessarilly making an argument for Kobe, although he was quite dominant at points throughout the year, but rather using him to illustrate a point against Dirk. I agree entirely about Nash's ability to raise his teammates' level of play, and I feel that LeBron and Billups do the same thing- for me, any of these three would have been a much better choice for MVP than Dirk. Kobe is on the fringe, but, however selfish a player he may be, was still more important to his team than Dirk, at least in my opinion. I'll drop this now.

The Spurs or Suns?

I'm thinking the Spurs.

How about you guys, what say you?

Both would wax the Jazz.

Am I the only one who was glad Amare called out Bruce Bowen and the entire Spurs team?

That replay on YouTube of Bowen kicking Amare's achilles is pretty clear to me.

Didn't the Jazz beat the Suns 4 out of 5 times this past season?

The Bulls won the season series 3-1 with the Pistons too, who's winning that series?

I believe the term is that AK-47 got "posterized".

Just watched NJ vs Cleveland. Wow, that game was horrible. All game long, Reggie Miller kept saying, "Which star is going to step up and win this one."

The answer? Nobody. It ended up being which star was going to make the last mistake. I guess you could make an argument that the D was just that good, but I'm not buying it.

Now for the good game. Go Suns!
