What can I say, we're back with one of my most favoritest things to partake in as an NBA Blogger. That's right, the Blogger MVP/ROY Rankings! We're back and bigger than ever in Year 2. As you may or may not remember, BrewHoop started this whole shebang last season, and it continues on with the First Edition hosted by HoopsAddict. Click HERE to see the snazzy first post, and if you are a fan of the NBA and/or awesome NBA Bloggers, I highly recommend that you check it out. It rocks my socks off.
After careful consideration, I wasn't going to inundate you with my boring rankings and comments decided to post my rankings and comments for my 10 MVP's and 5 Rookies of the Year below:
(10 = 1, 9 = 2, 8 = 3 and so on)
10. Al Jefferson – Guaranteed that for the second year in a row I am the only one to ever give Big Al any votes.
9. Chris Bosh – He good.
8. Carlos Boozer – He’s the most non-descript 20 and 11 guy I’ve seen in a while.
7. Paul Pierce – The Captain and the Truuuuuuuuuth. He’s backing up his self claim of being “the best player on the planet”, while leading the 8-1 Celtics to the best record in the East. Not to mention he’s hitting game winners and dropping 22 points in the 4th quarter like it’s nobody’s business.
6. Kobe Bryant – There is still something to say about players that help their team win ballgames. Too bad for him he’s “only” averaging 24 points per game. Ha!
5. Tim Duncan – Didn’t everyone pretty much agree that he was washed up like 3 years ago? 25 ppg and 10 rpg says otherwise.
4. Dwight Howard – I want him and his 15 rebounds per game to have my babies.
3. D-Wade – Holy revival! Wade is back in black. He’s scored 30 or more points the past 4 games and it doesn’t look like anyone can stop him when he wants to score. And looking at the rest of his teammates, he’s going to need to “want to score” every play for them to have any chance at winning.
2. LeBron – He’s so good that if he doesn’t average 30 ppg, 10 rpg, and 8 apg you wonder what’s wrong with him.
1. Chris Paul – Picking up right where he left off. Leading the league in assists, scoring points, looking studly, you know the drill. Being that voters always reward the second most deserving player from the previous season, CP3 is a lock to win it this year.
(5 = 1, 4 = 2 and so on)
5. Michael Beasley – Just because Sam Greg Bowie Oden sucks so bad.
4. Kevin Love – If his arms didn’t jiggle so much when he runs I probably would have ranked him higher.
3. Derrick Rose – The mixture of CP3 and Monta Ellis is a bonafide future star. Don’t forget he’s averaging 19 points per game and 5 helpers. Oh and he’s super quick, has incredible court vision, and gets to the rim at will.
2. Rudy Fernandez – He’s “only” averaging 15 points per game on an incredibly deep playoff contender. He can do it all and is uber-athletic. And he’s foreign. That gives him more of a boost right?1. OJ Mayo – Oh, the agony. Don't worry Wolves fans, we didn't need him and his 21 points per game average. Ladies and Gentleman, the Kevin McHale regime!
