The MVP Ladder Race for the NBA 2014 Season

NBA-MVP-2013-2014
The race for the title has begun
A few days ago there was a post published on NBA’s site regarding the MVP ladder and that there’s no doubt already as to who’s going to win the title.

The MVP ladder has decided that Kevin Durant will receive the long awaited title and claimed that he should be the one to win it because “KD deserves it the most.”

Anyway, I think it’s an overstatement. I’m sure the MVP ladder has did their due diligence before they came out with such a declaration, but there were other players who stood out this year too.

I’m not going to enter into the debate of whether Durant is the one who should win, but for me, the fact that I’m not seeing the name of Derick Rose on that list is PATHETIC.

The guy came back from a grueling injury! And of course he’s not going to be on top of his game after coming back for the first season… but he was really good considering what he’s been through, so the least they could do is to consider him to the top 10.

We’ve all seen the footage of Rose hustlin’ to get back on the court.

If you’ve ever been injured before, you know that it usually takes a long arduous rehab in the gym to re-condition the body and the area that was injured. This process is a lot more intense for an NBA player. This is why I was disappointed that Rose didn’t make it to the top 10 because he put a lot of effort in relation to others.

We’ll review this post and comeback to it after the MVP is declared.

Edit:
As predicted, KD eventully won the MVP for this season. Here’s his emotional speech afterwards:
