i would much rather have him win another championship. the MVP award is such an ambiguous award anyways.

Kobe will win it since we're going 82-0, and they'd have to give it to him.

On the real, I highly doubt he can win it... I'm shooting for Kobe's first Finals MVP this year.

yeah a finals MVP would be nice seeing as only 1 person in NBA history has won the award from the losing team meaning most likely we win the title

the MVP means nothing in the big picture when people talk about MJ it goes

6 Titles

skill level

statistics

MVPs

the MVP is a nice award but really unimportant compared to everything else

I can say Finals MVP is more probable over Season MVP.

As long as the Lakers stay up there on the rankings, he'll have a chance of getting it. But for sure, it'll be harder to get one this season.

If the lakers stay on the top, Kobe will win it. If they are +5 in wins, Kobe will win it.


Kobe's the best player on the best team. Take him away and the Lakers are fighting for a playoff spot, not sitting on the mountain top. No matter how stacked this team is.


Bynum is still not as consistent as he should be.
Pau never won anything without Kobe.
LO...need I say more?


His cast is better, for sure. But the wins go thru Kobe...at least, they will for the next year or so.

MVP award is a garbage award IMO... Shaq in his prime winning it only once is a crime... then Steve Nash winning 2 straight (ok he deserved 1, but two???)... HAH!

only way for kobe to win is if lakers win 65+ because kobe's scoring will most likely diminish this year seeing how offensively stacked this team is. Kobe will probably average 26 points, 5 rebounds 6 assists this year.

I wouldn't say 65+. I mean obviously if the rest of the teams in the league don't reach 60 wins then he won't need to win that much. He is the best player on the team so that will determine that he would be the only Laker winning the MVP award. I mean if Steve Nash could win MVP with only 54 wins then I don't see why Kobe couldn't win MVP although he does have a full healthy roster this time around. I don't know, we'll see how things go down the road.

The knock on Kobe, when comparing him to MJ as individuals, is always Titles>MVP>Statistics>Skill Level. Most MJ (and Kobe) fans agree that Kobe and MJ's skillsets are eerily similar with one having an advantage in Athleticism and Defense while the other has an advantage in Range and Ball-Handling... In terms of statistics, Kobe isn't MJ, but he never had to be; therefore, his stats will not reflect his ability [81 points? 50+ 4 games in a row? 56 after three quarters? 9 threes in a row? etc]. Kobe's early years skew his stats, yet he still has some decent career averages.

Now we move to MVPs, where Jordan clearly has the advantage over Kobe. Jordan's career is greater than Kobe's up to this point because of the MVPs and Championship rings. Of course, die hard BASKETBALL fans will value the rings over everything else, so this point is moot. I consider a championship to be the greatest achievement, as do most all fans, so Kobe winning another MVP title to me is nice, but it doesn't make him the best. A combination of two more titles, an MVP or two, and some solid statistical seasons will make Kobe vs. MJ a true debate.

As long as the finals' mvp is in the works, regular season mvp can be worked out, well depending on the factors.

Dun worry guys, let everything fall into pieces together.
