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

Of course a Cavaliers fan would think Im a hater. Your team is only THREE game above 500. in the LEastern Conference! When Kobe Bryant had his Lakers above 500. a couple of years ago, he averaged WAY better numbers then Lebron and in the West too, but he didn't even sniff the MVP.

Leaving King James out of the Top 5 is an absolute crime. Here is a man that missed 6 games previously in the season, the Cavs went....ummm...0-6. If that doesn't tell you how VALUABLE to his team he really is than you have no business discussing sports, let alone basketball.

Your just a Cleveland homer who thinks Lebron is GOD. Your team is mediocre and untill they get Lebron some real help, he won't win the award or the NBA title. Everyone in my TOP 5 has MVP type numbers like Lebron , but have their teams in great playoff position unlike Lebron.

Your Homerism will now be erased off my blog before someone catches it.

Leaving King James out of the Top 5 is an absolute crime. Here is a man that missed 6 games previously in the season, the Cavs went....ummm...0-6. If that doesn't tell you how VALUABLE to his team he really is than you have no business discussing sports, let alone basketball. The Cavs are the hottest team in the NBA right. They are 7-1 in 2008 and are coming off a huge win AT San Antonio. I'm not screaming to put LBJ THE KING at #1, but to leave him out of the top 5 just sceams out "hater."

Not to mention he is averaging the most points in the NBA as of right now, and along with that he is still averaging over 7 boards and 7 dishes a game. Please explain to me why he is not in the top 5.

I like the five guys you have now, because it's all about the impact they're making on their team. The only problem is Dirk. I think he should be a little lower. Nice work.
