NBA writers are generous in natural. They are the people who decide the league MVP each year and they love to spread the love around.
If they followed the definition of the award (Most Valuable Player), Michael Jordan would have retired with at least a dozen golden figurines.
It only makes sense then that the smart money is on Dwyane Wade to take home this year’s honors. Wade was at the top of the leader board last season with LeBron James and Kobe Bryant.
He enters this year as the lone player among the trio without a regular season MVP in his trophy case. If Wade puts up similar numbers to Bryant and James, the writers won’t be able to resist rewarding the Heat shooting guard.
“It’s his turn,” they’ll say.
It might be hard to dispute that argument at the end of the campaign too. Miami will finish with 45 to 48 wins with a roster full of dead weight outside of the Flash.
Dwyane is surrounded by a dope head small forward (Michael Beasley) and an ultra fragile center (Jermaine O’Neal). And those are his best two running mates.
Go grab Wade (+500 at Betjamaica.com) today and thank me at the end of the season.
