I think Kobe benefits a lot more than people think.


With Nash helping find him in his best spots and getting him easier looks his field goal percentage will go much higher, with the shooters he's now surrounded with and can depend on, his assists will go up, and Kobe can still shoot the lights out shall he choose.

If Kobe comes close to leading the league in scoring, but his field goal percentage is close to 50% and his assists go up by about 2 he could win MVP.

If Kobe's numbers are something like 28 points 6 assists and 50% shooting he could win MVP.
If Dwights is something like 24/14 he could win MVP.

But LeBron could get 24 6 and 6 and they'd give him MVP so it really doesn't matter.

What matters most is finals MVP more so than league MVP.

I think Steve will help Kobe out alot and I expect far better efficiency, but the media just doesn't like the guy. I don't see anyway they vote for him unless he puts up ridiculous numbers.

Kobe lead the league in scoring for 99% of last season and decided not to play the final games where he COULD have kept his lead in scoring in the league and Durant wouldn't have been the scoring champion.

But just a year after nearly finishing leading the league in scoring and scoring 42 against OKC in the final playoff game, people want to say he's done....


Kobe has reached a level where when he does amazing things people aren't surprised and they just say "Its Kobe being Kobe"

Whereas if anyone else does the same thing or something similar(like LeBron, Durant, Wade etc) people go OMG WOW DID YOU SEE THAT!?!?!?!

Kobe in people's minds is already higher than people in those aspects they just don't want to admit it.

probably none since people will say they have too many weapons. im not a huge fan of how they determine mvp nowadays. i guess if anyone was going to be the biggest difference maker for this team it would prob be nash though his numbers wont be there for the reason above. with that said , dwight would prob have the best shot
Abdul-Jabbar told the San Francisco Chronicle last month he met Howard only once and that Howard expressed an interest in learning from the former Lakers captain but he never again reached out to Abdul-Jabbar.

‘He’s charming, he’s charismatic, very nice young man,’ Abdul-Jabbar said. ‘Maturity-wise, he doesn’t get it.’

Dwight has best chance followed by Kobe.

Nash won't be in the conversation.

You got in the nail. People think Kobe already have more than 1 MVP which in case he doesnt. This guy has only 1.
I dont get it how come Lebron has 3 esp his last one with Wade and bosh as his team mates. Like what did he really do? You got 3 players in top 15 on your team.

Kobe should get one more before his career is done. Its sad how he has 1. Kobe knows this too. He should of gotten in 03, 06, 09, 10

Nobody on this team the MVP race is most likely gonna come down to KD, Lebron, and some 3rd player that will emerge during the season.

Not saying Kobe or Dwight won't have MVP caliber seasons but I can't see one of them winning it unless they have an abnormally great season.
