SORT BY Relevancy
Kevin Durant is going to be the MVP. There's no stopping him, and nobody is doing anything remotely close to what he is doing on offense for Oklahoma City. He might even win the award unanimously.
So that steers the MVP argument toward who should finish second, and I have been making the case for two weeks now that Blake Griffin is the most deserving candidate (although his missed FT late in regulation against the Pelicans was especially costly last night).
I have Griffin ranked No. 2 (and Joakim Noah ranked No. 3) in my latest MVP rankings, with LeBron James fourth. And after the Heat lost yet again last night, falling in Indiana, I would say my argument has been strengthened.
That was one of the topics of discussion this morning on AM830-KLAA on the Travis Rodgers show, but we also hit upon how Phil Jackson will try to rebuild the Knicks, how long the mediocrity window will stay open for the Los Angeles Lakers, and several other hot NBA topics. Enjoy.
I caught some grief from all corners today after news came out that I was the only voter among 125 who had Blake Griffin second, behind Kevin Durant and ahead of LeBron James, in the NBA's Most Valuable Player voting.
Quite frankly, I am stunned I was the only one. Doc Rivers made the case in April that Griffin was the better No. 2 candidate, and that was something I decided, too, over the final two months of the season -- a time when the Los Angeles Clippers were defeating all comers and the Miami Heat were blowing a chance to win the No. 1 spot in the East.
Here are five reasons why I voted Blake ahead of LeBron. I elaborate in this podcast.
1. Griffin had the best year of his career as the Clippers had the most successful season in franchise history.
2. The award is about value to a player's team. The Clippers had a better year than the Heat, and Griffin was the main reason why -- especially when he carried the team during Chris Paul's injury absence. Lest you forget, the Clippers (57-15) won three more games than the Heat (54-28).
3. The Heat had eight more losses than they did a year ago. Buy their own standards, they had a subpar season. They lost to a ton of bad teams.
4. The Clippers put up those 57 wins in a much tougher contest than the one Miami plays in.
5. Griffin had a 31-game stretch in which he scored 20 or more points. That is sustained greatness. LeBron's longest such streak was 10, accomplished twice.
If you need more, it is right there for you in this segment from the NBA channel on Sirius Radio.. Enjoy.
