I still reckon that any of LeBron, Kobe, CP3, D-Wade and Superman could take the MVP yet. It's nowhere near over.

I think by the end of the Season the current MVP standing will change a lot as it is to early to tell. I think that either LeBron James, Dwight Howard or Chris Paul will take it out. All 3 guys lead their teams around and just dominant every game.

Yes, I basically agree with all you.

But Dwight Howard should get it in my opinion.

Ya he is.

Dwght Howard has also risen.

1. LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers | Team Record: 32-8
PPG RPG APG SPG BPG FG% FT%
27.8 7.2 6.8 2.0 1.3 .496 .777

Last Week's Rank - 1
If the traditional stats above aren't enough of an indicator of LeBron's excellence this season, we can point to other statistical measures: John Hollinger's PER, the NBA's efficiency rating and the Roland Rating. Heck, BasketballReference.com even went as far to compare LeBron not only to another No. 23, but the greatest offensive force in NBA history -- Wilt Chamberlain.


2. Kobe Bryant, L.A. Lakers | Team Record: 34-8
PPG RPG APG SPG BPG FG% FT%
26.4 5.6 5.2 1.3 0.4 .472 .862

Last Week's Rank - 2
Is there a tougher player? Don't answer. That was rhetorical. Last season, Kobe nabbed MVP while playing much of the season's second half with a broken pinkie. Now, he's playing with a dislocated ring finger on his shooting hand. Why is Kobe continuing to play while rest would be the best thing for him? He needs to keep the Lakers in the hunt for home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.



3. Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic | Team Record: 33-9
PPG RPG APG SPG BPG FG% FT%
19.9 14.0 1.4 1.0 3.2 .559 .582

Last Week's Rank - 5
After a sterling 4-0 swing through the West, including wins over the Spurs, Lakers and Nuggets, Howard and the Magic were brought back to Earth when the Celtics came to town on Thursday and snapped Orlando's winning streak. "It felt like a playoff game," Howard told reporters. "But we didn't play like we needed to. We got to find a way to score in the half-court against them."



4. Chris Paul, New Orleans Hornets | Team Record: 26-13
PPG RPG APG SPG BPG FG% FT%
21.2 5.5 11.0 2.7 0.2 .499 .867

Last Week's Rank - 4
With the exception of the beatdown in Cleveland, Paul and the Hornets had a pretty good week. They've run off three consecutive wins and Paul has put up 26.3 points and 10.3 assists per game over that stretch. And thanks to the fans for rightfully pushing Paul past Tracy McGrady as a starter for the All-Star Game. As NBA.com's John Schuhmann says: The All-Star Game needs good point guards.



5. Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat | Team Record: 22-19
PPG RPG APG SPG BPG FG% FT%
28.8 4.9 7.3 2.3 1.5 .474 .754

Last Week's Rank - 3
Despite his team's mediocre record, Wade's candidacy can't be questioned. Here's Heat coach Erik Spoelstra on a Miami radio show on what Wade means to the Heat: "I think that's probably the biggest reason why our young guys have progressed faster than people anticipated, because they saw his example starting from training camp. He has not missed a practice, doesn't miss a turn. It's really kind of similar to what Michael Jordan was for the Bulls all those years."



6. Chauncey Billups, Denver Nuggets | Team Record: 28-15
PPG RPG APG SPG BPG FG% FT%
18.6 2.7 6.9 1.4 0.2 .416 .909

Last Week's Rank - 6
Despite two losses this week, the Nuggets have a 26-12 record with Billups running the point and lead the Trail Blazers in the Northwest by 2.5 games. Do you think the Nuggets would be where they are without Billups? "What Chauncey does for us is not necessarily statistics," Nuggets coach George Karl told the Denver Post. "It's savvy, it's leadership, it's locker room, it's big shots in the fourth quarter, it's orchestrating for most of the game."



7. Tim Duncan, San Antonio Spurs | Team Record: 28-13
PPG RPG APG SPG BPG FG% FT%
20.4 10.2 3.5 0.5 1.8 .514 .691

Last Week's Rank - 7
Thanks to the fans, the Big Fundamental will play in his 11th consecutive All-Star Game. He held the Spurs together in the first half while Manu Ginobili missed 12 games recovering from ankle surgery and Tony Parker missed nine games with a sprained ankle. The Spurs have won 13 of their last 16 and Duncan has been his usual steady self. He's even hitting his free throws, shooting .722 in the last four games.



8. Yao Ming, Houston Rockets | Team Record: 27-16
PPG RPG APG SPG BPG FG% FT%
19.9 9.6 1.8 0.4 1.7 .544 .867

Last Week's Rank - OLI
Yao is Houston's last man standing these days as it will be news when Tracy McGrady or Ron Artest aren't injured. Yao will start at center for the Western Conference All-Stars and deservedly so. He's deadly from the field and from the stripe and he's the only reason the Rockets have their collective heads above water in the West.




9. Brandon Roy, Portland Trail Blazers | Team Record: 25-17
PPG RPG APG SPG BPG FG% FT%
22.3 4.7 5.2 1.0 0.4 .463 .818

Last Week's Rank - 9
It was a rough go for Roy and the Blazers last week as they went 1-2. While there's no shame losing to LeBron and Co. at the Rose Garden, losing in OT at Charlotte wasn't a good way to end a road trip. "I haven't felt great since I came back from my hamstring," Roy said after the loss to the Bobcats. "My mid-range game doesn't feel as good as before I got hurt."



10. Kevin Garnett, Boston Celtics | Team Record: 36-9
PPG RPG APG SPG BPG FG% FT%
16.1 9.1 2.6 1.2 1.3 .521 .855

Last Week's Rank - OLI
Welcome back to the Top 10. Last season, KG finished third behind Kobe and CP3 in our final rankings. In winning seven straight, it looks as if the Celtics have regained some of their championship swagger. KG is the man who gives the Celtics that attitude, but even more than that as of late, he's been aggressive and most important, efficient at the offensive end of the floor.



Outside Looking In (OLI)

11. Dirk Nowitzki
12. Joe Johnson
13. Pau Gasol
14. Jameer Nelson
15. Tayshaun Prince
16. Paul Pierce
17. Devin Harris
18. Steve Nash
19. Amar'e Stoudemire
20. Tony Parker

I think that LeBron will take MVP this year, he has been a star for the Cleveland Cavaliers and has shown great leadership. He is a big time player! If he is missing all his shots in a game you can always guarantee LeBron James to land the big time shots to win.

I expect Dwight Howard to go over Kobe Bryant in the coming month, It truely comes down to who also plays well in the All Star game.

Shaquille O'Neal could finish inside the "Outside Looking in" as he has been in great form of late and has been leading the Phoenix Suns top scorers in the Suns last games and he is still playing great in defense.

I expect in the next few year to see Jameer Nelson pick up an MVP or come close as he is looking very good for the Magic and will only improve especially with the likes of Rashard Lewis and Dwight Howard playing beside him.

Yes, Shaquille O'Neal will get pretty close, not top 10 close but around 10-15. He has been playing a great year for a great team.

I think the Suns have brought out the best of him in this age, just as they did with Grant Hill and Jason Richardson this year. Everyone has really been playing great for the Suns.

I actually expect either Dwight Howard to win, if not LeBron James with slim chances for Kobe Bryant. He has won it last year, nobody is in a hurry for him to win it anymore now. But LeBron James and Dwight Howard are really good so I could see them winning over Bryant this year.

Do you actually think that Jason Richardson is playing well for the Phoenix Suns? I dont, he has dropped his game since he has came across from the Bobcats. His offensive game has dropped totally probably because of some many good scorers in the Suns that he isnt getting the ball as much as he did playing for the Charlotte Bobcats.

Well by the way LeBron James is playing at the moment he is certainly the favourite although you never know as someone like Kobe Bryant or Dwight Howard will step up the pace. Yes I agree I think that LeBron James will take out the MVP this year.

RJT in a descriptive post can you please tell me who do you reckon will be the finals MVP?
