NBA MVP: Enough Already!

Andrew KneelandSenior Writer IApril 3, 2008

Over the past few months, there have been countless dozens of articles pertaining to the NBA MVP race.

Most of these articles have been about the race between Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, but there have been the occasional unorthodox approaches.

Let's take a look at what has happened over the past few months at Bleacher Report.

We've had articles explaining why Chris Paul should win the MVP.

We've seen articles highlighting the lesser-known MVP candidates, including Chris Bosh and Tracy McGrady

My thanks go out to writers like Jeff Yang who write articles about any award NOT named the Most Valuable Player.

There are also articles explaining why articles regarding the MVP race are ridiculous, like this one.

An interesting idea has also been brought forward during these last few months. Nate Smith proposes that the MVP should be decided by the players and coaches.

Then we've gotten to try on the David Stern pants while we read articles like this one that examine the entire MVP voting process.

Other people think that this race is really no race at all, and that it is an unfair process in the first place.

That brings us to the never-ending supply of articles raging over the Kobe-LeBron debate.

People think that Kobe should be the MVP because of the conference that LeBron is in, simply because the Lakers are the best team in the Western Conference, or even simply because Kobe is more publicized.

There are the LeBron backers who support James because he is carrying his team and because Kobe is the only person who doesn't deserve it.

The MVP articles that stand out to me, though, are those that share my viewpoint: who cares?


Besides, we all know that Kobe Bryant will win.
