^^^^I figured with all the Laker loves out there (AKA the NBA) that they will win the title even if they don't make the finals

How do you have JO as your MVP but not listed on your All-NBA team?

I consider All-NBA as the best players at their position [or just overall talentwise] and the MVP as the most valuable player to his team [basically the best player on the team with the best record]---I'm not into the A-Rod-on-a-last-place-team-MVP stuff..

edit: I'm not saying Garnett or Duncan isn't worthy of the MVP, but if the Pacers finish with the best record, Jermaine should be the MVP. I just consider Duncan and Garnett as better all-around players.

I don't see how COY can go to anyone other than Sloan. Other coaches have more wins, but what he's been able with that roster has to be rewarded. Utah is 1 spot out of the playoffs in the West, and this team has the least talent in the league.

I'm trying to be polite about it. Honest mistake, no need to poke fun.
Actually there should be an executive of the year up there at the top of the thread. Kiki would be my vote easy.

I'm still with Porter or Sloan on coach though.
