I don't think Lebatard has a vote.

From top to bottom? Sure. But it's not like guys from the 60's-70's were unathletic stiffs.

lol yeah, oh well. What do we do with all these pitchforks though?

Edit:

Alex Kennedy
?@AlexKennedyNBA
Gary Washburn (@GWashNBAGlobe) has owned up to being the lone media member who voted for Carmelo Anthony as MVP over LeBron James.
DON'T GET RID OF THOSE PITCHFORKS!

His explanation. His logic doesn't even dictate that Melo is MVP. It should have lead him to vote for Chris Paul, not Carmelo. I mean Paul made the Clippers relevant for the first time ever, not just 19 years. But whatever. At least 99%+ of sportswriters aren't that guy.

Edit: As Zach Lowe points out: @ZachLowe_NBA: Gap in wins btwn MIA's 66 wins and the No. 5/6 seed was larger than gap b/w NYK's No. 2 seed and the No. 9. MIA had 21 more wins than the No. 5 seed, NY had 16 more wins than the No. 8 seed.

LeBatard with a great study on how people will believe everything they read on the internet.

Well played Lebby, well played.

So my vote had more to do with Anthony and less to do with the dominance of LeBron. If you were to take Anthony off the Knicks, they are a lottery team.


They would still be in the playoffs without carmelo.

Even if you assume it to be true, no playoffs without Melo, what do you do with the Heat, overwhelming title favorites, take off Lebron and they are highly unlikely to win a title?

Sounds pretty valuable to me lol. Then there's the whole thing that when Lebron was off the court, the HEat were outscored over the course of the entire season. When Melo was off the court, the Knicks still outscored opponents. Hard to argue Melo's value there.

I see you are still blindly following stats without any concept or notion of context.

Regardless, even without Melo, the Knicks were a +3 efficiency, which is like a 50 win team. And they won 54 games... Soo Melo ain't adding that much value.

I don't think the Heat are nearly as bad without LeBron as the numbers state. They play so much differently when he is on the court. They'd run a different type of offense if he wasn't on the team and the numbers would shift. They'd still be a very good team without him. I mean they won plenty of games at the end of the season with him resting.

Still. LeBron is far more valuable than Melo. It doesn't really matter what type of metric you use. He's more valuable to the Heat than Melo is to the Knicks. Put him on any team and he makes that team better than Melo would make that similar team. He had a VASTLY superior season. I don't so much care that LeBron wasn't unanimous, but voting for Melo with a #1 is beyond dumb. Especially when the logic the guy used should have led him to vote for a different player. Just a bad look for that guy. He should have just remained nameless because his reasoning makes his vote look worse.
