    Default MVP Ladder - No Kyle Lowry

    http://www.nba.com/2012/news/feature...ls=nbahpsplit2

    How disgusting is this? Sekou Smith determines the MVP ladder through the first week of the regular season and not even a mention of Lowry, considering he posted 23pts, 7rebs, 7 asts, 3 stls, 60% FG and 3PTFG.

    Complete disregard for players NOT on american teams.

    Actually, they wrote the story today, and Kyle's stats are: 18 pts, 6, reb, 6 ast. That 4th game against OKC playing only 17 minutes with 2 points really hurt.

    Either way, if he keeps up 20-6-6 all season long, he'll be right there.

    does it really matter what someone thinks after the guy played 4 games? this is reaching at it's finest.

    i see the point you're trying to make about the disregard, but let's revisit after 20 games or so.

    I also don't see:

    Gortat - 15 pts on 60%, 11 rebounds and destroying the league in blocked shots

    Duncan - almost playing at his historic levels

    Mo Williams - who until last night was playing on par with Jennings



    This list is just players who already have have a history of being prominant scorers or league leaders on teams that are good or expected to be good. I'm sure to statisfy everyone Smith would need to make a list of 50 players.

    For Lowry to even sniff at an MVP opportunity Toronto needs to be a top 2 team in the conference, and Lowry will need to maintain being the scoring leader on the team and/or league. Unlikely that both or either will happen.
