List updated each week.

Top 5 list for Jan 23rd - Jan 29th

( ) = last weeks rankings

player photo  Los Angeles Lakers logo  (1)  1)Kobe Bryant/Los Angeles Lakers - Yup as much as I hate to do it, he deserves it. Leading his team to a 26 - 11 record and putting up solid numbers again (28Ppg - 5Apg - 6Rpg) his numbers should increase some with the loss of up and coming Andrew Bynum. If the Lakers win the division, Kobe DESERVES his 1st MVP award.

  • Last weeks avg's - 32PPG, 5PPG, 6APG
  • Key game of the week - Vs Denver Nuggets (19Pts, 5rebs, 11ast, 2 stl)

player photo Boston Celtics logo (2)  2)Kevin Garnett/Boston Celtics - Is leading the resurgence of the Boston Celtics with Ray Allen and Paul Pierce. Numbers are down a bit (19Ppg - 10Rpg - 4Apg - 1.5Bpg) but is the main reason why the Celtics started 30 - 4. He's MVP material in my book.

  • Last weeks avg's - 19 PPG, 9RPG, 6APG
  • Key game of the week - Vs New York Knicks (20pts, 13rebs, 7ast)

player photoORL(NR) 3) Dwight Howard/Orlando Magic - Nicknamed "Thunder". Howard's abilities and powerful physique have thus drawn attention from fellow NBA All-Stars. Tim Duncan once remarked. He is so developed... He has so much promise and I am glad that I will be out of the league when he is peaking." Hvaing a career year as well (22PPG, 15RPG, 2.5BPG)

  • Last weeks avg's - 18PPG, 14RPG, 3BPG, 2SPG
  • Key game of the week - Vs Detroit Pistons (23Pts, 8Rebs, 3Stls)

player photoCLE(NR) 4) Lebron James Is having another great year (30Ppg, 8Rpg, 7Apg) has the Cavs at 8 - 1 in January and to think he just turnred 23 years old. His future is looking bright and when Cleveland finally decides to put some Talent around him then watch out. I see multiple titles in his future.

  • Last weeks avg's - 35PPG, 7APG, 7RPG, 2SPG
  • Key game of the week - Vs Memphis Grizzlies (51 Pts, 8rebs, 9ast, 3stl)

player photoNO(4)  5)Chris Paul/New Orleans Hornets - Putting up career numbers across the boards(22Ppg - 4Rpg - 10Apg - league leading 2.8Spg) One of the up and coming Pg's in the league who is deserving of this spot. He has put this team on his back, and could carry them deep in the playoffs.

  • Last weeks avg's - 14PPG, 5RPG, 11APG
  • Key game of the week - Vs Millwaukee Bucks (16Pts, 7rebs, 10ast)

Outside of the Top 5.......
  • Steve Nash
  • Dirk Nowitzki
  • Baron Davis
  • Brandon Roy
  • Yao Ming

ChrisperJ10's MVP TOP 5

This is the exact same as my top five.... good job, Chrisper.

I would have Garnett at 1a right now, though. Just looking at what the Celtics were last year compared to what they are now.

But as it stands, The Mamba has the edge for this thing, he's played amazing without the Diesel, but now he's actually leading.

I would put Chauncey in Paul's place, though.

ChrisperJ10's MVP TOP 5

Thanks for the respect....but yea that game on Friday was extremely frustrating because i felt we had that game since the opening tip. We played horrific in the 3rd quarter (just like today against the Lakers) and Marion picked the right time to step up. Stevie Nash was lights out from deep which ultimately killed us. If these past 2 games say anything, it's that the Cavs can at least compete with the West. They'll be a force to be had come playoff time. Looking forward to the update.

O yea and btw...i'm still trying to figure out how King James missed those lay-ups. Anyway good luck with the pesky Hornets for that top spot.

Your right ND, or should i say the artist formely known as ND.

Anyways LBJ has outplayed everyone this week in my top 5. If my stats and team play are right. LBJ should be #1 next week.

You'll just have to wait and see.

Good win for the Cavaliers today. That was one hella of a game they played against my Suns on Friday.

ChrisperJ10's MVP TOP 5

OK Chrisper.....Kobe's time at #1 has officially come to an end. LeBron James proved that yet again tonight by beating Kobe with a less superior team, and the Cavs were even without Varejao in the 2nd half.

And like i've been saying all along, Kobe isn't even the most valuable player on his team.

Lakers since they've been without Bynum: 2-4.....this proves that Kobe is not as VALUABLE as everyone (except me) thought.

Chrisper!!! Glad to see you added The King to the top 5, and even though i feel he should be higher, at least it's a start. Can't wait for the game on Saturday - LBJ vs. will be a true test to see how much LeBron can carry his team against an elite Western Conference opponent (even without Bynum). If James brings home the W and looks good doing it, it should be straight to the top - #1.

btw, this is ndirish817, can't get onto my other account so i made a new one.

ChrisperJ10's MVP TOP 5

Here is a man that missed 6 games previously in the season, the Cavs went....ummm...0-6.

How do you know that the Cavs wouldn't have lost those games even with him?

Leaving King James

King James... a bit too much.

you have no business discussing sports, let alone basketball.

Oh, you're the guy who decides if we can discuss sports or not? Got it.

The Cavs are the hottest team in the NBA right

Tell that to the Celtics fans.

Please explain to me why he is not in the top 5.

Because the other guys have made bigger impacts on their teams...
