ANNOUNCING THE MVP BEFORE THE GAME??
If the Celtics had won the NBA Finals what makes Kobe deserving of the title of MVP? I am a die hard Celtics fan and I thought we were going to win. By game five, even Kobe doubted if they were capable of winning the series. In the very beginning of game six Perkins was injured by Gasol and Bryant turning the tables putting the Celtics into dangerous territory. What truly irritates me though is that even if Boston took the 2010 NBA Finals Kobe Bryant still would have won MVP. Bryant is an amazing player and has had an incredible carrier… the stats do not lie (I will admit that).
However, if the Celtics had won I sincerely believe that it should have gone to Ray Allen or possibly even Rajon Rondo. Allen being the obvious choice…Rondo who I think a little under appreciated just really working his butt off every game. I would be making this argument regardless of what team won. I think the MVP should be on the wining team which they did, but don’t announce it before the series is even over! Also, since they did give the MVP to the Lakers, as painful as this is for me to say, Pau Gasol deserved major consideration.
