Daily Poll: Who's your Suns MVP?

Time to hand out the hardware, so let's jump right in.

Nominee's for Suns MVP in alphabetical order are:

Grant Hill - Grant Hill will play in his 82nd game tonight for the first time in his career. He's been lively on both ends of the floor attacking the rim with renewed vigor and serving as the Suns best perimeter defender.

He's done everything the team has ask and then some. He also has been consistent in the face of change and is without question a model NBA professional.

Steve Nash - The two-time MVP struggled under Terry Porter but with the change in coaches and the injury to Amare has stepped up his aggression. Kerr called him a top point guard in the game and defense aside, he is certainly that.

Steve is on track to put up an amazing 50% FG, 44% 3P% and 93% FT%. His assists per game are "down" to 9.7 per game but that's still good enough for 3rd behind only Paul and Williams.

Shaquille O'Neal - Shaq's on the court resurgence this season has been simply amazing. He's played at a higher level then anyone thought possible putting up 18 points and 9 rebounds on almost 60% shooting. Even his FT% is up to 7 ticks to 59%.

Off the court, Shaq has been a leader in the locker room and despite all the up's and down's of the season has been as consistent as any Suns player.

Amare Stoudemire - Before his untimely injury Amare had and impressive 21 points and 8 rebound season. His shooting percentage dropped as did most of his numbers but that can easily be attributed to the slower pace and an offensive system that had him shooting more jump shoots.

Honorable Mention - Aaron Nelson, the Suns head trainer has kept Nash, Shaq and Hill on the court. None of them has missed extended time due to injury with Nash's ankle sprain being the only notable exception.
