Will Kobe Bryant Repeat the MVP. It was hard for him to win it this year, so do you think he will repeat the award. To me, the only way he will repeat is if his team is Number 1 and has over 65 Wins with him atleast avg 25+ Points 5+ Assists 3+ Rebounds and so on

3 rebounds!?!? If he's around 27/5/5, playing ALL NBA 1st team defense and the Lakers are demolishing the league he should definitely get the MVP again. And I'm banking on his numbers being better than that.

i dont see kobe winning it again next year because he is so unselfish nowadays, sacrificing statistical points over winning games..

but if he do gets it...i'll still celebrate for he is our own!!!

Kobe has a great chance of winning an MVP again with these conditions:

1- Both Chris Paul and Lebron James suffer season ending injuries and/or die.

2- MVP voters stop hating Kobe...

He could probably win it if we win 70 games :yawn:
and CP3 and LBJ have lower numbers, even just a little, next year.

If the media likes to follow the trend, he'll win MVP. Player A wins twice in a row, Player B wins once. Player C wins twice in a row, Player D wins once. The formula has been right since 2002.

2002: Tim Duncan
2003: Tim Duncan
2004: Kevin Garnett
2005: Steve Nash
2006: Steve Nash
2007: Dirk Nowitzki
2008: Kobe Bryant
2009: Kobe Bryant?

Kobe Bryant will not win the MVP next year unless the Lakers do something extraordinary.

Why? Because in order to win the MVP, there must be something special about your season. Remember, this is the MEDIA who chooses the winner of the award. It is all about marketability and the best thing to market is a good story.

2007-2008: Lakers go from turmoil to top team in the West.
2006-2007: In general this was a slow year, but Dirk's team winning 67 games was the huge story.
2005-2006: Even without Amare, JJ, and Q-Rich, Nash leads the Suns to the top of the West.
2004-2005: Nash joins the Suns and complete turns them around.

What was the one thing people focused on with Chris Paul while he was the favorite: he saved New Orleans basketball and took the team from being out of the playoffs to first in the West.

Unless the Lakers give the media some kind of story that will sell, don't expect Kobe to get the MVP.

Look for James to get the award if Cleveland gets anywhere near 50+ wins. If not, I fully expect the award to go to Chris Paul since he supposedly "deserved" it this year as well.

Would winning 70+ games be special enough or would it just be because they had Bynum, Gasol, and Kobe and that they would get split votes? (kind of like the Celtics in the 2007-2008 NBA season)

I think the problem with the Celtics this year is that people weren't sure if the team leader was Pierce or Garnett and NEITHER had the statistics necessary to put them in the discussion.

If Kobe and the Lakers win 70 games, you can pencil Bryant in as the winner. His statistics will be among the top 5, as always, and reaching the 70 game plateau is a much greater story than simply coming close to doing it.

Yeah I COMPLETELY agree. Kobe became MVP because everyone thought he was going to be traded.. and no one thought he would bring the Lakers to 1st place in the toughest Western Conference ever. Not to mention all of the damn injuries his teammates had.

I would love to see Kobe win it again, but it's unlikely. I never thought I'd see him win even one so I'm just glad he's got one.

I don't think he'll get the minutes to do it man (30ppg). Too many blow outs. With Bynum back in the fold, I expect his FGA to decrease instead of increase. Maybe a rise in efficiency will make up for the difference?

I actually expect a very similar line to this season with increased efficiency, assist rates, and a decrease in turnover rates. His usage and minutes will decline as well.

If we do win 65+ games, I think he has an EXCELLENT chance especially if James fails to win 50+. I truly believe the most significant factor in the MVP voting is the player's storyline. I don't know if anyone has read my blog about why Kobe deserved MVP, but I think there is significant evidence to show that is indeed the case.
