    The people who vote for Kawhi and LeBron just flat out don't want to vote for Hard or WB. It's kind of sad. There is no way, you can say with a straight face that those other guys are MVP. It's either haterade or homerism.

    I'm not sure if Brian Getzligerererr (hoops critic) has a vote, but his is for Harden.

    I can understand voting for Kawhi, but voting for Lebron is a joke and anyone who does should have their voting privileges revoked immediately

    I think he said on Locked On Rockets that he doesn't have a vote.

    Is he a confirmed voter? A lot of people keep revealing their MVP picks while not actually having a vote.

    Hmm, good point

    Not sure why I thought he was a (confirmed) voter.

    I can't understand voting for Lebron or Kawhi at this point. Both guys have sat out too many games and in Kawhi's case his team actually has a winning record when he sits.

    The MVP is supposed to go to the guy whose having the best statistical season while leading his team to the most wins possible, it's not about who someone "thinks" is the best player on the planet, otherwise Lebron should win it every year.

    The list of jabronies who voted for Westbrook isn't surprising at all.

    If somebody votes for Kawhi then I'll heavily disagree with it, but I won't mock them for it. He at least fits the criteria of an MVP due to his very good stats on an elite team. He's 2-0 against the Cavs, 3-1 against the Rockets, and 2-1 against OKC. Plus he's 1 of the most highly regarded defensive player in the NBA today.

    Anyone who votes for Lebron should be laughed at and shunned.

    Arnovitz is leaning towards Harden, I doubt he'll switch over to Westbrook with the season basically over

    I got this from J.R. in the Harden MVP thread...

    "I have a ballot & I'm leaning towards Harden right now with consideration for Westbrook & Kawhi Leonard. LeBron is sorta there at four. My answer is: I'm not regarding the T-D as any sort of standard. Clearly he's an amazing rebounder & assist guy. If that number was to drop from 10.0 to 9.94, I wouldn't be any less or more inclined to vote for him. I love the novelty. I'm leaning Harden, because though he doesn't have that magic 1 in front of his rebounding total, he's above 8 and assists are well above 11, shoots much more efficiently & his team is more successful. That's not to take anything away from Westbrook but when you get to the MVP argument, you have to nitpick (in a good way). They're incredible players. I'd be happy to have any one of them leading my team. But you have to divide it up. Oh wow, Westbrook misses 14 shots? That's a lot of shots. Not a crime but if I'm trying to discern where each guy ranks relative to the other, that's a consideration. Inefficiency is something I have to factor in. That's just one of the things you have to consider."

    He hasn't made things official, but I think we've got another 1st place vote for Harden. Hopefully he puts Kawhi 2nd.

    If you're an early decider, you are more likely to be distracted by the breaking of the big O-verrated's tainted record.

    The voters listed for Westbrook are the known to be idiots. Probably good news for Harden to get them out of the way early.

    I'm sure you can put Calvin Watkins down for Harden.
