Tony Parker for MVP?
 
Quote:

The argument persists that Parker is a system point guard, and if there remains some truth to that, it fails to acknowledge that it is a system now built primarily around the constant pressure Parker places on a defense.

No longer just a talented scorer at the point guard position, Parker is a true point guard in every sense of the word. He probes for weaknesses, manipulating defenses like chess pieces with a look here or step there, creating open passing lanes for teammates to step into.
On their first two possessions of the game the Spurs ran some action to get Parker the ball near the top of the key, where Parker was enough of a threat to draw the entire defense’s attention while Duncan and Tiago Splitter cut in along the baseline for easy passes at the rim.
Parker was able to draw that attention because he has transformed himself into a reliable scoring threat from anywhere inside the 3-point line and extending beyond it in the corners, as he proved time and time again, hitting 5-of-7 from outside the paint.
Quote:

During halftime of Thursday's Spurs/Clippers game, TNT analyst (and "The Price is Right" enthusiast) Charles Barkley called Parker, not Paul, the "best point guard in the NBA," and his colleague Kenny Smith agreed. Barkley then, as he so often does, took things one step further.

"This guy — first of all, he should be the MVP," Barkley said. "Listen, LeBron [James] is the best player. Kevin Durant's probably a better player. But when we've been voting on the MVP the last 25 years, we gave it to the guy who had the best record on the best team. Tony Parker should be the MVP. [...] If they finish with the best record — because you think of all the time that [Tim] Duncan and my man [Manu] Ginobili have missed — this guy's unbelievable. And just because he's down in San Antonio with all those big old women, he don't get the credit and respect he deserves."
Tony Parker?s awesome, but he?s not the MVP, and that?s OK | Ball Don't Lie - Yahoo! Sports Canada

Lebron is having a season for the ages. Parker deserves recognition, as does Durant, but Lebron is a cut above. I mean the explosiveness, the vision and now the jumper--glayven!

Barkley makes an excellent point. Best player on the best team, that'll be Parker. The other part is if either doesn't play for their respective teams which would have the biggest impact? My opinion, that's Parker.

Now if the award was based solely on the criteria of best player in the league? Well LBJ would win every year.

MBailey85 02-24-2013 03:52 PM

Chris Paul,he has the numbers and his impact is greater than any other player right now because he means the most to his team. Without CP3,the Clippers can barely win and may not even be a playoff team in the West.

LeBron is having a great year. If this award was the Most Outstanding Player,I'd vote for him but in terms of value to his team and what it's worth,I'd have to with CP3 right now. James Harden deserves more consideration too. For him to join that team that late prior to the regular season starting, adjusting to new teammates and a new role,at his age that's phenomenal.

Hard to argue with that after seeing how pathetic the Clips looked when Paul was out. I think that's what hurts Parker's case more than anything else TBH... the Spurs are such a well-oiled machine that they can absorb losses to stars without a significant drop in their level of play.

It definitely does in the Spurs case,year in and out Ginobli is one of the best players and a top 5 shooting guard in the league but because he comes of the bench he doesn't make the All Star team,it's almost a joke if u ask me.
