    NBA MVP

    Who do you guys think the NBA MVP should be? I know it's only the midpoint of the season and though I am a Bulls fan, I am not trying to be biased in saying D-Rose. But he has got that team going with 20+ over .500 Not saying it's just him though, Boozer, Deng, Noah, Korver, Thomas. D-Rose is avg almost 25 pts a game and 8 assits and went off with 42 tonight against the best team in the league, the Spurs. So, D-Rose for MVP in my opinion.

    Other contenders:
    LBJ (Miami)
    Dirk (Dallas)
    Dwight Howard (Orlando)
    The Durantula (OKC)
    Russel Westbrooke (OKC)
    Kobe (LAL)
    CP3 (NOLA)
    D-Wade (Miami)
    Rajon Rondo (Boston)

    Rose is playing out of his mind right now. I'm not really a betting man, but I'd put my money on James right now.

    Re: NBA MVP

    I would say right now it's between King James and Kevin Durant imo...If D-Rose keeps playing like this he has as much of a shot as anyone. Also if melo keeps playing like he is, he probably has a good chance. Kevin Love and Blake Griffin would be contenders if they had better teams.

    DRose.. tonight was nuts


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: NBA MVP

    Kevin Love defines most valuable player....without him they may not have 15 wins....but 2 or 3....and 41 straight double-doubles....he is most valuable, not the "most popular player" on the most marketable team....as the nba chooses its

    Can't even remember the last time I watched a full regular season game. I do start watching once the playoffs start though, same with hockey.

    Dude I hear what you're saying for sure. Blake Griffin is in the same sinking ship of a franchise situation, and based on numbers klove is a beast. But its all about winning, klove or blake may get all around player or offensive or somethin.

    Re: NBA MVP

    It should be KLove he is the Timberwolves. No one thought he would be this good.

    If the season plays out like I think it will, LeBron will be the MVP.

    Look out for Dirk in the 2nd half of the season. He's getting back into his groove after having a little bit of a setback w/ a wrist injury.

    Re: NBA MVP

    As a Celtics fan I am way more afraid of facing the Bulls in the playoffs than Miami. Rose is playing out of his mind and if you look at the rest of their roster, and the fact that Noah has been out for half the season, its pretty amazing that they are 38-16. They would be a lottery team without Rose, so he's MVP in my book.

    Do they by chance have the odds on which month Amare's knees are going to explode? I'd take a 3/1 on April myself.

    The NBA has been great the last few years, and this year is probably the best its been for a long time. There are entertaining games on almost every night and there are at least 8 teams with legit shots to win the Finals this year. San Antonio, Dallas, Lakers (even though they're struggling now, they'll be there in the end), Boston, Miami, Chicago, Orlando, OKC...all of them have a shot. I've found the NBA more enjoyable to watch than college ball this year, especially with how ISU's season has gone. Give it a chance, you might like it.
