There was one upset, however. Argentine forward Luis Scola -- who will play for the Houston Rockets this season -- was named Most Valuable Player, which was shocking considering the announcement came a few minutes after his team lost by 37 points. "That's unusual," U.S. guard Chauncey Billups said. "Usually it goes to a player on the winning team." But votes were split among three U.S. players, and that allowed Scola to win. He had eight votes and was followed by Carmelo Anthony with six, Kobe Bryant with three and LeBron James with two. Brazil's Leandro Barbosa had one. - Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Not a big deal, but he only won b/c the minutes he played. Our team was so deep that half the time our TOP TOP players were on the bench for most of the 2nd half. I do think it's strange like Chauncey said, but no1 on our team really stood out as the best. It was always some1 different.

The only way a USA player would win it, is if they gave the MVP award to the entire team. No one player stood out and was absolutely dominating night in and night out like Scola was. No discredit to the USA players, but a one-man performance was never necessary.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

USA had 11 votes split. No one really outshined the rest, but congratulations to scola nonetheless.
