i know LBJ will be in the Mix for the next 5 years, but who else will sneak into the picture? And which of these young guys will actually win one?
KD: He gets #'s every year so he could put 30+ & win a MVP
RWestbrook: Can he harness his immense talent?
Rose: Will he win a 2nd MVP in the Next 5 years? The sky is the Limit.
JWall: I could see him posting 22/11/4stls for a seaon getting his team to the Playoffs
BGriff: This Monster Could put up some Serious Mailman type of #'s
KLove: Please don't laugh if Minny makes the Playoffs with his insane #'s he could win the award.jus imagine him with a winning team with #'s of 23/16 rebs.
My bet is on KD to win one or two MVP's in the next 5 years.
I think Rose gets one more (at least). I think KD gets at least 2 MVP awards. I think that Dwight Howard will get an MVP award too. I wouldn't count out Chris Paul either. I think Wade helps cancel out LeBron in the MVP race, but outside of Rose, Durant, Howard, and CP3 I think LeBron has a better chance than anyone else. I think that LeBron will win another MVP award but it might be 3 or 4 years from now.
Those are the only guys that I could somewhat count on getting a future MVP award with Blake Griffin, Kevin Love, and John Wall being the next in line. Guys with slight odds but who I wouldn't totally rule out would be Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire, Tyreke Evans, Zach Randolph, and Rajon Rondo.
i forgot about CP3. So we can't count out DWill also, when his SuperStar help arrives in 2012.
KD, Westbrook and Rose will always be in the discussion because they'll prolly be in the 55+ win category. Blake and Wall could lead their team to 50+ wins so yeah maybe.
But Love? Get outta here.
The Most productive player on Pick & Pop situations.
He's a big that can shoot. In the right situation he can give you 23ppg & 16 rebs for a Team that goes deep into the playoffs. Those #'s on the Lakers/Boston would get him MVP consideration.
One of these days Dwight Howard will win it. He has come close several times.
I cant see Kevin Love winning MVP. Defensively he's not very valuable and thats half the game. MVP's are usually great defenders as well, and dont just put up big numbers.
To win an MVP award is a huge achievement look at Kobe and Shaq something like 55,000 career points but only one MVP award each.
Rose has the ability to win more but with LeBron in his era then it may not be easy. I'd agree that Howard, KD could win an MVP award, Westbrook I'm not so sure on.
As regards CP3 and D-Will a lot could depend on where they go or who they are surrounded with as to whether they ever become an MVP.
If we are looking at other more established franchise players then D-Wade springs to mind but to win it ahead of LeBron he'd need to have a huge season. The other two who could be wild cards are Melo or STAT who could put up huge scoring at the Knicks but they would probably need to be at least a 55 win team to be considered.
Blake Griffin could well be the best PF in the NBA within maybe 5 years but again he'd need the Clippers to be successful to be considered, likewise K-Love.
I can't see Kevin Love winning it lol. I can't see Russell Westbrook winning one either... Not with Kevin Durant on his team.
Dwight Howard - He'll win at least one, maybe more if he keeps improving on offense.
Kevin Durant - He'll win a couple. He's too good not to.
Derrick Rose - He'll get another one... Especially if he's still the only one on Chicago who can do anything with the ball.
LeBron James - He'll get another one. It's ridiculous to think he won't. He's still a walking triple double and his teams always win 50+ games and go far in the playoffs. I really don't think a MVP is his goal though... He's been there and done that. He needs a ring.
Blake Griffin - He'll get one or two.
John Wall - I could see him getting one.
all depends if their teams get any good. Big "if" though.
Westbrook will never win an MVP as a member of the Thunder, because he isn't even the best player on his own team, and just imagine how bad OKC would be if he was.
imo if lebron wouldnt have joined with d wade he could have won damn near 6 in a row and i wasnt really sure until i saw the cavs last season
rose- could get another one if the bulls continue to be elite and he continues to improve
kd- will win a few hopefully but i think with lebron still being in the league not really sure how soon
d howard- needs to get one his team is almost worse then a college team without him
love- are you FUCCIN serious?
wall - needs to win first
griffin -same as wall
On this day 7 years ago, if I said "Steve Nash will win 2 MVPs" would I have lived to the next day? That's what I thought.
For John Wall to win an MVP then Washington would need to become at least a 50 win team so that would be a big ask and with guys still on rookie deals then it all depends how well their current team does or if they move on to a bigger team.
For example the Lakers will have to replace Kobe in the next few years so a top star could land there and be on a 55 plus wins team and be an MVP contender but I think we have covered virtually all the major contenders.
In the next 5 years I see these guys having the best chance at an MVP; Durant, Lebron, Rose, D Howard, Blake Griffin. Wall may have a chance in a few years, but he definitely needs to continue developing...especially as a jump shooter.
