NBA MVP race as exciting as playoffs

April 15, 2009

Heading down the stretch of the 2009 NBA regular season, two things are probable: The Cavs and Lakers meeting up in the NBA finals, and either Lebron James or Dwyane Wade taking down the MVP honors.  Until a few weeks ago, Lebron James was head and shoulders above all other players in MVP consideration.  James has continued his dominance down the stretch, as he has led the Cavs to a 39-1 home record, and home court advantage throughout the playoffs.  For a team that went 45-37 last year, James has his team on the verge of a championship.  Mo Williams has been an intregal part to improved record this year, and has also served as a great second scoring option.

Dwyane Wade already has a ring on his finger, and is showing the world why he continues to be a top 3 player in the league.  Plagued by injuries last year, Wade sat out a total of 28 games to heal his ailing knee and shoulder.  In turn, the Heat ended the 2008 campaign with the worst record in the NBA.  This year D-Wade is 100% healthy, and the Heat are back in the playoffs.  The success of the team rises and falls with number 3.  He won the 2006 finals MVP, and is looking to add a regular season most valuable player to his repetoire.  Whenever it seems as though Lebron is off to the races with the award, D-wade puts up 55 points and gives everybody a reality check.

We can’t forget about Kobe Bryant.  Coming off of a 2008 MVP season, Bryant has a great chance of stealing the award again.  Leading the young and inexperienced Lakers to the finals last season, Kobe Bryant knows what it takes to win, and make his teammates better.  The Lakers are almost a shoein to be in the finals again this year, and there are many NBA fans that predict that Kobe will win his fourth championship.

The winner is… Lebron James.  No shocker here, but you have to realize that the Cavs are the clear favorite to win the championship this season.  They have been basically unbeatable at home, and Lebron James is on a tear that not even a full grown grizzly bear could probably shut down.  His teammates love him, and his city embraces him.  The bad luck that Cleveland fans have had in their mouths over the last quarter of a century will fade away as Lebron brings home a championship in 2009.
