It is a new universal malady.
Even chess fans are getting rowdy.

I feel like Chris Paul deserves to be higher. The Suns went 34-39 last year.

They're NBA fans

Be glad the morons didn't vote in Kobe Bryant for MVP.

I respect the hell out of Rose for changing his game and finding a way to not only stay in the league but thrive as a solid starter after his knees blew up but yeah, there's no way he's anywhere near MVP.

The voters were just doing a Chris Paul impression and aiming a little low.

It would have been nice if that article had listed any reason why Rose shouldn't have been the MVP.

/Yes, I do know why he shouldn't have been the MVP

I often think what Iverson could've done.  But instead of developing his jump shot and passing game, he kept trying to be a 5'11", 38% FGP shooting guard.  Once his speed went, it was curtains.

I didn't even realize Derrick Rose was still playing.

NY is a big media market... if the Knicks could f*cking figure that out maybe they could field an actual team and contend.

Difficulty: James Dolan

Dude thinks people are more interested in his attempts at music than the teams he owns.

It's sad... I remember the NY "Ewing" Knicks... they were never great, but at least they contended and gave you hope. This guy is such a tool and that's really saying something for NY sports team owners.

Hey, at least the Nets came to "town" and helps people forget the Knicks even exist... which they already did like 5 years ago.

The Knicks were very good this year.

Kinda flamed out in the playoffs, but they ran into a hot Trae Young. And Thibodeau is pretty famous for running his team into the ground in the regular season and then running out of gas in the postseason.

Still, very good this year.

I thought he was out for the season due to injury.  I might be thinking of last year and the three years before that though.

They were good compared to the last several years. I watched a few games and I absolutely agree they are improved... But, that's not the kind of team NY, with that money and that market should have. They should be expected to get a deep run on a consistent basis and that group is probably not going to give you that.

But, no doubt, they had some brilliant games this year. It's definitely a solid middle-of-the-road team.

I say that as a newly minted Celtics fan (15 or so years ago) used to winning and also getting my heart ripped out.

But as a kid on Long Island, it was Knicks or die. I want to see them do better. The fans deserve it.

He has been hurt every year it seems.

It's certainly less prestigious than voting in a 5th line goon to be All Star captain...

As an ex-Knicks fan (because fark Dolan), the playoff version of MSG is perhaps the most intimidating and energetic atmosphere in all of American Sports.

Even with the limited capacity, that place still buzzed come playoff time.

Was he even the MVP of the Knicks?

I think it's more vote like you have at least one functioning eye and a brain.

The man was given too many first place votes as it is.
