Bloguin’s MVP and ROY rankings released

If you haven’t been to NBA Base Line yet today, what’s wrong with you?  The Mid-March Bloguin MVP and ROY Rankings are currently up, and that’s right, you guessed it…you know who is currently ranked 8th:  Deron Williams from the Utah Jazz.

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers receives 2008-2009 MVP trophy from NBA Commissioner David Stern prior to playing the Atlanta Hawks in Game One of the Eastern Conference Semifinals during the 2009 NBA Playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena on May 5, 2009 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Or maybe that’s not what you guessed.  But if what you did guess was that LeBron was number one in another MVP power ranking, stop patting yourself on the back.  The only thing remotely surprising about that is the fact that the league office did not choose to save on postage and send this year’s trophy out in the same package they shipped his last player of the month award.  I’d say its his trophy to win, if not for the fact that he’s already won it.  As far as the current leaders to win silver and bronze however, my votes were as follows:

1. LeBron
2. Durant
3. Dirk

When all the votes were tallied, the top-3 shook out like this across the network:

1. LeBron
2. Kobe
3. Durant

In case you’re wondering, I had Carmelo 4th, and Kobe 5th.  For the complete top-10 according to the esteemed bloggers of this network – and some reasons behind the votes – click here.

We also weighed in on the ROY race.  And no, Christian Eyeanga just hasn’t done enough to get my vote.  However, Steph Curry has, and this time around, I had him number one.  My top-3 rook’s were as follows:

1. Steph Curry
2. Tyreke Evans
3. Brandon Jennings

All tolled, the top-3 looked like this:

1. Tyreke Evans
2. Stephen Curry
3. Brandon Jennings
