When a guy starts a sentence with "With as many flaws as Wade has in his game". he loses all credibility. That is beyond laughable and ignorant. Wade has been one of the most efficient and best all-around player ever since he entered the league. That's not up for debate, that's what the eye-test + stats say. "If you remove Wade, could LeBron still get a Chris Bosh-led supporting cast to the NBA Finals in the East" Another beyond ridiculous statement by Wallace. If after covering the Heat for a decade and the big 3 for now 2.5 years, he came to the conclusion that Miami only needs Lebron & Bosh to reach the finals, he must seriously rethink his day job cause he will never be promoted to anything else with these unfathomable and indefensible opinions...

Every team would be screwed without its most important player. I don't think the players care about the MVP award as much as the media does. I would think that looking at the clips, heat and thunder that the heat and thunder would still get to the playoffs without bron and kd. I don't know if the clips would make it without paul

Lawson has regressed, I think I would take conley over him. He has to be close, is he slumping that bad this season? Damn, the NBA is in the golden era of point guards. AAU is great at teaching kids to pass, now start pumping out some low post experts!

Not having Lawson in the top 15 point guard list is a joke

Why is there a question who mvp is. Thunder would still be a good team without durant. Heat would struggle to make playoffs without bron.

LeBron James efficiency has been very impressive I'll be surprised if he doesn't win the MVP this year

The odds given for a Clippers-Heat matchup in the Finals seems really high. I would give the Clippers a 10% chance coming out of the West, max. Let's not forget that the Clippers were easily swept by the Spurs last year (who are an even better team this year) and that they still have VDN as their head coach.

Stop this MVP argument nonsense. Even though Durant is having a ridiculous year, and will surpass LeBron in the coming 2-3 years, he is NOT having a better year than LeBron. He is only leading in PPG, FT%, and turnovers. While Durant has made great strides defensively, he is NOT on the level LeBron is playing defense at while defending the opposing teams best player night in and night out. Also everyone should just sit back and enjoy the amazing basketball that they are both playing. Its like watching two cyborgs.

I think Wallace not conisdering Ty Lawson a top 15 point guard now and moving forward is kinda stupid. Lawson is having a better season than 4-5 of the guys he listed and is only 26.

Wallace also rated Raymond Felton ahead of Brandon Jennings, Steph Curry, and Damian Lillard. Not sure he knows what's going on.
