So, now that all game two’s have been played, order has been restored and we are back to 10 MVP candidates. MVP Ladder 1) Kevin Durant Game one stats: 44 minutes, 35 points, 13-26 FG, 15 rebounds, [...]

Jordan Crawford didn’t play a single minute in the Celtics’ 92-86 game five victory over the Knicks last night, but he had no problem stirring up some controversy. After another miserable night shooting the ball (8-24 FG), Carmelo Anthony was kindly reminded by Jordan Crawford that Kevin Garnett slept [...]

MVP Ladder Newcomers: LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Paul George, Kevin Durant and Brandon Jennings. 1) Andre Miller Game one stats: 27 minutes, 28 points, 11-16 FG, 5 assists, 3 rebounds. Not only did Miller score a game-high 28 points in 27 minutes off the bench, but he also blew by a 23-year old rookie in Draymond Green for the game-winning [...]
