It's too early to say
It's a weird year at the MVP ballot box.
There are Super Teams, whose stars tend to split votes. (See the Spurs, Celtics and Heat).
There are old favorites (Kobe and Dirk). There's the current league darling (Derrick Rose), who followed the last league darling (Kevin Durant). And there's always the one guy whose supporting cast hasn't lent enough balloons and bunting to his candidacy (Dwight Howard).
So I say it's still a tad early to decide. What's the rush?
I want to see the stars in the stretch run, but my leading candidates: Rose, LeBron James, Howard and Kobe...
