NBA MVP: Kobe Bryant? LeBron James? Who Cares Anymore?

Danny DraginCorrespondent IMarch 3, 2008

I know it can't just be me. I know others out there have to be just as sick of it as I am. 

It's the start of March and everywhere I look the debate is waging about who the MVP of the NBA is. Is it Kobe? Is it LeBron? Honestly, who really cares?

ESPN asks who is the MVP? Yahoo Sports wants to know who is better: Kobe or LeBron?  Seriously, the playoffs have not even begun. And what's more, the real prize is in June.

Ask Dirk what he would rather have, an MVP or a title? Sure there are bragging rights, but the title is what you are remembered by. And after all, isn't basketball a team game?

Sure the MVP candidates are amazing on the court. Without them, their respective teams would not matter. And yes, we as fans tune in to see them more than anyone else. But let's keep things in perspective. 

Steve Nash has been the MVP before. He is considered one of the best point guards in the game. I'm pretty sure he would trade in his MVP awards for just one title. After all, isn't the MVP award an individual award in a team sport?

At the end of the season, twelve men will be awarded rings for winning the NBA Championship. One man will win the MVP award. Perhaps he will be on that championship team. 

Otherwise, to me, it really doesn't matter who the MVP award goes to.

Where can I comment?
