I can't help but notice the placement of Durant, Roy and other young players in recent MVP prediction lists. Can players really be ranked like this? I think that a lot of it has to do with situation and whatever system the player is in. Steve Nash thrives in the Sun's Run-n-Gun system, David Lee does under D'Antoni. Durant thrives in his current system, especially because he's been given so much freedom to operate. If a player like LeBron was given a coach that would teach a system in which he could thrive even more, or conversely fall lower on the chart, how much would that reflect the actual player?
