Who cares about the MVP?

I generally think MVP is a silly award for two reasons.

  1. The standard is unclear. How much should wins count? What about pure statistical dominance? Late game heroics? Injured teammates? Excellent teammates? Crappy teammates? Character? Everyone  uses his own criteria it seems.
  2. Even if there were a clear standard, it's still based on regular season performance, which, to be honest, is relatively unimportant. I mean, a No.1 seed hasn't won the title since 99-00 (the Lakers) and only three of the last ten MVPs won a title the same season. Who really cares if you were the best player on a team with a great record if you didn't win anything?
So I think they should revise the award process, so that we do include playoffs, because that's when the best players excel and we find out which team is really best.

And that also means that the award should have probably looked like this for the past ten years. Jordan, Duncan, O'Neal, O'Neal, O'Neal, Duncan, Billups, Duncan, Wade, Duncan.

And I would agree with that.
