No MVP for Kobe this Season

If we are going to listen to the NBA pundits, it's basically a two-man race for the MVP: Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks and Steve Nash of the Phoenix Suns.

Kobe Bryant is considered a long shot third on MVP talks. Which is really unfortunate, really, because Kobe has been the NBA's most lethal scorer and arguably the best non-center in the last 3-4 seasons. I liken this situation to Rick Barry's predicament in the 70's where mediocre team play and a tainted reputation basically shut him off from MVP consideration numerous times.

While Kobe may downplay the MVP awards talk, given his explicit competitiveness, this is probably eating him a bit.

Side note: Luke Walton is not dating Britney Spears!
