Thread: Finals MVP

  1. #1

    Default Finals MVP

    I would conduct a pole, but honestly I don't even know who to put as canidates.

    First I guess say who you think will take the series.

    ( I know that there is alot of Piston Resistance, but please honest answers!!)

    Then who you think will get the MVP.

    Then who you think deserves the award.

    ----------------------------------------------------

    I would put my answers, but for me it's kind of a toss up. There have been so many different leaders in each of these games IMO, that it's hard to put anybody anywhere, basically different people show up on different nights and it's hard to decipher.

    I thought that I would dedicate a thread to this, it being my 200th post and all. Ahh it seems like just yesterday I was being yelled at to check the archives and to obstain from posting 5 threads in an hour...ahh memories.haha

    If the Pistons win, Billups has to get it.

    If the Spurs win, I'm not sure. No one stood out too often, though technically I feel Ginobili did the most.

    I have to go with Billups
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Billups.

    If the Spurs win, Manu. Duncan has choked his MVP chances away.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I'd go with Billups no matter who wins the series. I don't know how long it's been since the MVP came from the losing team but I feel that way this year.

    I agree with rim, Billups has consistently been the best player on either team.
    Manu and Horry have had their moments but Chauncey has been amazing throughout.

    If the Pistons win, Billups wins. Unless he gets ejected in the 1st quarter and Rip scores 35 or 40.

    If the Spurs win, It's between Manu and Tim. Whoever puts their stamp on game 7 will be finals MVP.

    If Pistons win, I think Rasheed should get some consideration, consider the great defense he used to stop Timmy Duncan, not many people can limit Duncan to having two bad games.

    If Spurs win, Manu would be a canidate, how about Big Shot Bobby? Without him, who knows what would happen, and it be a bench player for MVP for the I guess the first time?

    If the Pistons win its Billups. If the Spurs win and Duncan comes through and has a great game 7 its him, if the Spurs win and Manu comes through and has a great game 7, its him.

    Nobody on the Spurs has been good enough to win the MVP.
    If I had to stretch, I'd say HORRY.

    Pistons, otherwise, have BILLUPS.

    I think it will go to whomever hits the gamewinning shot tonight.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Obviously, if the Pistons win it's Billups.

    If the Spurs win, and Horry has another game similar to the game he had in Game 5, he's GOT to get MVP.

    Billups deserves two awards for the series:

    MVP -- Most Valuable Player
    LOP -- Least Obnoxious Piston
