Chris Paul for MVP
Posted by admin on April 25, 2008
The regular season is over for the NBA and that means the votes for MVP are already in.Â The race for MVP this year has definately been a close one.Â With names like Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Kevin Garnett, and LeBron James all floating around, it is hard to tell who will pull it out.Â In my opinion, it looks like the race will come down to the Western Conference superstars Chris Paul and Kobe Bryant.
Kobe Bryant has been a key player in the NBA for many years and is yet to claim his MVP award.Â I hope that this year he will continue his streak.Â The reason that I don’t want Kobe to win is because, even though he is a valuable player, he is somewhat of a cry-baby.Â A couple of years ago, Kobe ran Shaq out of Los Angeles because he wanted to be the superstar.Â Then earlier this year, heÂ had basically given up on the Lakers and was at the point of demanding a trade because there was no one else good on the team.Â That is until Pau Gasol made his way over to Los Angeles and Kobe decided that he could give the Lakers another shot.Â
This is not the attitude that an MVP should have. Â AÂ MVP doesn’t give up and look for a way out so that they can have it better.Â The MVP plays hard no matter what and makes a difference on any team.Â That is why my vote goes for Chris Paul.
The Hornet’s by far do not have the best team in the league.Â However, the young point guard Chris Paul is able to drive the team even though he has only a few years of NBA experience.Â He is a master of the point guard position.Â He is quick, smart, and improves the overall quality of his teammates.Â He is an amazing offensive player.Â He pulls double coverage to him and is still able to get anywhere on the court that he wants.Â He averages 21.1 points per game and 11.6 assists.Â Â He is also a great defender.Â He is quick so he can get in and make some steals.Â He also has amazing style as he covers the post.Â He plays like a MVP and has the attitude of the MVP.
That is the difference between Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul.Â Kobe doesn’t like it when he doesn’t get his way, even though he not sure what his way is.Â Whereas, Chris Paul make it his way.Â Chris Paul all the way for MVP.
