HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — Who better to weigh in on the MVP debate than the two men mentioned most often as the frontrunners?
Heat star and two-time MVP LeBron James was asked his opinion about Derrick Rose and indicated to ESPN.com’s Mike Wallace that the MVP hype for the Bulls’ point guard is justified:
“I think [it’s] Derrick Rose,” James said before the Heat’s game Wednesday night against the Washington Wizards. “What he’s done for that team, with all the injuries they have and them being first in the Eastern Conference — they’re playing some really good basketball.”
Rose said he was surprised to get LeBron’s vote.
“Yeah … I’m speechless right now to tell you the truth,” Rose said.
What if the MVP voting was done by the players instead of the media?
