Yet another MVP candidate used the New York Knicks to have a huge game. Kobe and Lebron had huge nights earlier in the year, and last night was Wade's turn, as he scored 55 points.
In addition to his career high 55 points, Wade also had nine rebounds. The difference between this game and the other two MVP's is that this one was at home for Wade, while Kobe and Lebron did it in NY.
So how does this shape the MVP race? I don't think it does. NY isn't a defensive team and all these guys had comparable games versus the same team. This team is a Mike D'Antonio team, meaning they don't play defense and they and their opponents score a lot of points.
So with a couple of games left to play, my choice for MVP hasn't changed, it's Lebron James. I think he has been the MVP all year, doing more than any other player. It's a tough year to pick, but that's my choice.
