    Pretty much. A seemingly unstoppable offense and an underrated defense. Lee, their starting SG, is a shut-down defender. He's held Wade, Kobe, and Martin quite well. What a steal he was.

    Is every player who has, better than those who haven't?

    I'm still inclined to believe Malone and Barkley were better than Mchale for instance, or say LeBron is better than anyone on the Cs or Pistons, or Wade.

    LOL! 10 years from now you still going to bring up that NBA title that the heat won?

    Lebron, CP, Kobe, Dwight Howard, KG and Pierce are all more important to there teams and carry there teams more than d-wade. just look at there records this year compared to the heat. and d-wade has done nothing since shaq left.

    wade is not even in the conversation for MVP or best player THIS YEAR. just look at who's carrying there team into the playoffs and look who's not.

    look at lebron's all around numbers and see who's having the better year.(ppg is not a factor in who's having the better year)

    Since Rip Hamilton and Chauncey Billups won NBA titles they must be better than Lebron as well right? I mean thats the only thing you base everything on.

    Lebron's overall game shits all over d-wades. defense, offense, making his teamates better and being more of a leader.

    are you for real?? the olympics?? how about you talk about who's the better shooter in the NBA.

    Lebron's all around game is better than d-wade

    .negative....i think any team would love to have both but wade more because he can shoot,pass,and he deserves more credit because my heat has a young and small team and we are most likely going to be in the playoffs.

    .yeah i bring it up because we won and lebron failed......

    .kg and pierce....they are 3 great players none of them will win the mvp this year.

    .cp is in the top but has lower number then wade and his team is not playing that good and they have a good team

    .d.howard and james might challange wade but wade will win it at the end because the heat will make the playoffs and with a avg team.

    .wade is not for mvP? http://www.twincities.com/sports/ci_11446329?source=rss

    do you watch the NBA? Wade does not pass the ball better than lebron and few people in the NBA can pass a ball like lebron. D-wade is a scorer and thats it. his defense is no where near as good as lebrons. lebron's leadership and the way he gets his teamates involved is better than wade. he's just a better all around basketball player and thats a fact.

    when was the last time a guy who locked up the 6th or 7th seed for there team won MVP?

    the guys I listed, CP(who has no center or PF right now) Kobe, Lebron and Howard have a better chance of winning MVP before wade.

    The reasoning that Wade is better than Bron because he won a title and finals MVP is laughable. I realize those are prestigeous achievements but come on. By that logic I guess Tony Parker (who won several titles and a finals MVP) is better than CP3 (robbed of an MVP last year and has little talent around him)....NOT!

    Secondly, I can't blame erick for being so passsionate about Wade. Who wouldn't like a superstar on their favorite team? I am the same way with Kevin Martin. :D

    Thirdly, it is quite controversial to automatically give the MVP to a player whose team has the best record. Yes, that is quite an accompishment but what about MVP candidates on 2nd tier teams like Billups and CP3 or even 4th/5th tier teams like Granger and Dirk and Roy. I'm just saying that records shouldn't hold most of the weight on MVP voting.

    As for the Celtics, if there is going to be an MVP candidate it has to be Allen IMO. Ageless wonder who has carried when they needed him.

    The cream of the crop right now are Bron, Paul, Howard, Wade, and Kobe. There is not ifs ands or buts around that. As for the order I Duncan and Billups are right behind. will leave that up to you all to debate but my pick so far is Bron. Love him or hate him (l don't like him) he is one of the most unstoppable forces the league has ever seen. He keeps getting better and has a seemingly limitless ceiling for his talent.

    In the end if erick wants to think Wade is the MVP then fine. Not gonna think any different of you.

    I've found that it is quite hard to persuade people over the internet and to just live and let live.
