Yeah. Sure.

Christalmighty, I'm beginning to hate all the boards on this site. I don't even ask for agreement. Just reason and acceptance of other points of view.

I know. Wrong place to expect it.

I'm going to get drunk now. Then, maybe . . . I'll slap my wife around a little bit. Kick the dog. All because I've gotten so upset. And, personally, I would have voted for LeBron.

First, the Award means whatever the writers who vote want it to mean. There are no criterion. Arguing over something (stupid) with no answer is fruitless.

Second, if if if if if if . . . if my grandmother had balls, she'd be my grandfather.

Third, the point of the award is to get people to talk. Good award.

Fourth, nonsense. It's nonsense. So is MIP, and I got roasted for saying that.

ETA: I suppose the Hall of Fame is only for the most famous of athletes. After all, words mean so much. I drive so much on my driveway. Pass interference has so much to so with messing with the passer and has nothing to do with the receiver, otherwise it'd be called receiving interference, right?

What 42 says.

Unless you can find a precise, agreed upon set of criteria upon which voters are to base their vote, your argument is meaningless. Not saying you're wrong, but you're no more "right" than someone who uses a different set of criteria.

That's it. Get rid of the fricking award and its 55 year history.

They got rid of the maps with the edge of the world and monsters, yet the flat earth society remains.

Sometimes bad ideas just stick around because some thing their important while the chorus of laughter just builds and builds.

Respectfully, you're wrong. There are monsters, and one lives in my closet. Just ask my little girl.

My argument is even if you use that writer's criteria, he still should have voted for lebron. Lebron objectively meant more to the heats success than melo meant to the Knicks success.

What are the objective criteria for "meaning?"

Win shares.

Lebron had double what melo had.

So the MVP is an output of the win share calculator? We strip it from Rose? Kobe (Chris led WS in 07-08)? Both Nash's?

Why not WARP?

And let's take lebron out for the sake of conversation. Why on earth does melo get the vote over Durant, CP3, and Harden?

That's my biggest beef. Based on the writers own criteria the melo vote makes no sense.

I'm not agreeing with this criteria. I'm just illustrating why the vote was stupid using this criteria.

And the Rose MVP was stupid and should have gone to bron.

It sounds like you need to write a litter to the Boston Globe.
