Sorry Kobe.  It's the King's turn this year.

Sorry Kobe. It's the King's turn this year.

I’ve seen quite a few of these articles around and figured I’d weigh in with my own thoughts.  It’s been an interesting season thus far, whether it’s been the reemergence of Dwayne Wade, The dominance of Lebron, or The Celtics pursuit of another title.  Since we have about a month an a half left until the playoffs, it’s time to make some picks for the year end awards.   I encourage everyone else to comment with their own choices.

Mason could be making big shots in the Playoffs

Mason could be making big shots in the Playoffs

With All-Star weekend finished, we can now look ahead to the second half of the NBA Season.  As the trade deadline nears, many teams will be looking to make moves that will put them in better positions for the playoffs.  While the first half of the year showed us that the Celtics, Lakers, and Cavs are for real, we also learned that the Spurs may still have some fight left in them.  These last few months bring up even more questions.  Can the Celtics repeat with their current team, or will they have to add someone?  Who will be this season’s MVP?  Which underachieving first half teams will sneak up and join the elite group?  And, which majors players will be switching teams?

L...O...They Know

L...O...They Know

On Thursday night, I had a few drinks and made some pretty dumb comments before the Celtics/Lakers Game.  Referencing his performance at MSG, I mentioned how glad I was Kobe was back to his old form.  If he was planning to score 60 a game, there was no way in hell he would be beating the Celtics come playoff time.  I then made some remarks about how Lamar Odom, despite his talents, was useless, and that the Lakers may as well trade him.  After yesterday’s game in Cleveland, it’s safe to say I’m eating my words.

Is Lebron James the chosen one?  Well, in previous years I would say most definitely not.  Lebron James, or “Lebrick James” as I’ve come to know him, has come into his own this year.  Despite still being an average free throw shooter (I believe his average is 77%) and not being a threat from three point land, he is becoming a better overall player because of his defensive presence and field goal percentage.  If you watch Cleveland games you’ll notice that he has become a very effective shot blocker from the weak-side.  I’ve seen him make “Tommy-points” on several occasions: when an opposing player seems to have an easy lay-up, the “King” comes out of no where and just blocks the ball into Cincinnati.  If Lebron James can become a better on-ball defender, which I believe he will, and can hit his free throws when they really matter, I will have no choice but to recognize him as the best player in the league.  However, until that time comes, I will still refer to him as “Prince James” and recognize who everyone else in Boston despises, Kobe Bryant as the best player in the world.
