    [QUOTE]James Worthy won the playoff MVP in 1987/88 season. Could easily have given it to Magic just as an automatic selection. But the people who decide on the award seemed more likely to think outside the box in the 80's. Didn't Cedric Maxwell get a playoff MVP in 1981? Arguably he could have earned two of them with his game 7 performance in 1984. These days it would be unusual to have the award given to a player who wasn't the face of a franchise or a marquee NBA player (usually they're the same).

    Who do you think should have won it last year?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Van Gundy Say Phil Jackson's comment ignorant. : There are so many adjustment they can do from now to the last day of trade deadline. There is always one or two premium disgrunted players out there who would like to join a team like miami. One or two addition and substraction will change the flavor dramatically. ...then you'll eat your word. Go ahead and keep taunting them, they will come back with vengeance. ...still stupid early!~ was a very stupid assessment whoever thinks they are dead & done.

    The key word in your response is "premium". You're NOT gonna get a "premium" player for "chump change"...hence the Erick Dampier pick-up... and I doubt there are many teams out there that are going to want to help the Heat get better. And what are you going to use for "trade bait"...some of those stiffs who signed for the minimum?!

    I hear Jerry Stackhouse is available again. LOL

    [QUOTE]You guys will be surprised. At the end, Miami will make adjustment and things will be different on summer and playoff time. You'll regret it!
    Posted by CHEisCHE[/QUOTE]

    You may be right.  I do expect Miami to improve, but not significantly.  They have to develop better team chemistry in order to be able to compete for a championship this year.   They still don't have any center or point guard that will really help this team.

    If the only stat you're looking at is shooting percentage, then yes, Gasol should've won Finals MVP with a .478, over Kobe's .405. 

    But the Finals MVP is about more than just shooting %.  Let's see how they broke down -

    PPG - Kobe +10.0
    Kobe: 28.6
    Gasol: 18.6

    FT% - Kobe +.162
    Kobe: .883
    Gasol: .721

    RPG - Gasol +3.6
    Kobe: 8.0 (not bad for a shooting guard)
    Gasol: 11.6

    APG - Kobe +0.2
    Kobe: 3.9
    Gasol: 3.7

    SPG - Kobe +1.4
    Kobe: 2.1
    Gasol: 0.7

    BPG: Gasol +1.9
    Kobe: 0.7
    Gasol: 2.6

    Not to mention Kobe's tenacious defense the entire series.  Gasol was great, but he wasn't the best in the series.

    Bryant probably more based on the game 6 performance than game 7.
    Pierce over Rondo if the Celtics won. Although Rondo's overall playoff performance was better.

    Sorry, Al Jefferson still starts for Utah, Telfair still starts for MN,Ryan Gomes is a rotation player for the Clips and Theo Ratliff is still a stiff in LA.  The only one out of the league is lakers-summer league invitee Gerald Green.  Oh, and two first round picks!!

    Who did the lakers trade again?  Aaron McKie, Kwame Brown, Javarius Crittendon and Marc Gasol?  Only Gasol is still a viable player in the league, and he had ZERO experience when they traded for him!  13 ppg and  8 rpg is what Memphis got for Pau Gasol..............................premium for garbage!

    Interesting article that was published long before the Garnett trade.

    Perhaps the Ray Allen trade changed his mind?

    Kobe and tenacious defense is laughable.  Laker fans and  so called announcers that drool on Kobe talk about his defense.   He does nothing special on defense but gets a lot of praise for it.  The Lakers use to put Kome on Paul when they played their two games and Paul for the most part Paul would light him up like a Christmas tree.  The only reason you noticed his defense was he disregarded Rondo and was free to roam.  That doesn't make him a "tenacious" defender.
