I said he WILL get it because the media says so and they're the ones that freaking vote for the thing. If you get pissed every single year that Kobe doesn't win the MVP then you're a homer I'm sorry you just are. Kobe will not win it every year, and he will not deserve it every year, it just doesn't work that way. When Nash won it with his team of all-stars when Kobe was clearly more valuable to his team I was pissed, but if Kobe loses to LeBron I'm not gonna be pissed, that's just how it goes. If LeBron takes this team of role players to one of the top 3 records in the NBA I have no grounds to complain if he wins, that's the criteria, best player on one of the best teams. Kobe will be in the argument and might come second place and I believe he will deserve it as well, but I'm not gonna go around screaming "INJUSTICE" if LeBron wins.
Also, that's the last I'm gonna say on this, this is the Kobe Bryant Appreciation Thread, not the Kobe vs LeBron for MVP thread.
I'm getting very frustrated because you do not know what I'm saying at all. I'm trying to get across 2 principles, 1. that just cause the media says something, doesn't mean it should happen. I can see that you don't think that and I understood what you said. So were all good there.
Number 2, I'm saying that just because YOU think that it's close between kobe and lebron and it's YOUR opinion that nash definitely did not deserve it DOES NOT MEAN that people shouldn't be upset if Lebron gets it over kobe, assuming that kobe really is the MVP for the sake of argument. The situation would not differ just because you and many people think that kobe deserved it more or less over someone. If he deserves it, nobody else does PERIOD and that's what I'm trying to say. Maybe you don't care that lebron will get it because you just don't give a damn about the award, but for all the people who do care about it, it would be an injustice to us if someone undeservedly got it. Understand that I'm not even arguing who deserves it more or weather kobe>lebron or Lebron>kobe, I'm arguing about something that annoys the hell out of me, when people just buy into the fact that "that's the way it works" and don't care about what's really right.
Even if we are arguing who deserves it, lebron is not taking "a team of role players" to the finals. He would be taking a great defensive TEAM to the finals. I think that's giving him way too much credit. But besides that, I'm not arguing about who deserves it, I'm arguing about a hypothetical and a principle.
And if you are taking this personally, then you need to relax a little bit. I don't have anything against you, and while it may seem I'm acting condescending or arrogant, I'm just passionate and representing what I feel. I'm arguing my point without calling you anything. I'm not attacking you, I'm just debating. Isn't that what a forum is for? You said this is a kobe appreciation thread and I was just using this thread to talk about kobe and the MVP since I don't feel like making another thread about it. With that, and you calling me a homer, I don't think your doing your job very well which is moderating I believe.
