Stan Van Gundy: The media has already decided that Rose is MVP
 

 


Stan Van Gundy believes the MVP race is already over, and Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls is going to win it.

"I don't think it's wide open. The media seems to have made their decision, and they're the ones that vote. So I think it's over,"
Van Gundy said Wednesday night as his Orlando Magic prepared to play the New York Knicks. "I mean, I just listen and read. I think it's over. Derrick Rose has it. I haven't really read or heard a media guy who is going another way at this point. I'd be shocked if he doesn't win it."

Votes from selected sportswriters and broadcasters are due back at the league office on Thursday, April 14 -- the day after the regular season ends. The award is announced at some point during the playoffs. Last year, LeBron James received 116 of 123 first-place votes.

Van Gundy has openly campaigned for Dwight Howard, who is scoring 23.0 points per game -- 1.9 fewer points than Rose. Howard is also second in the league in rebounding (14.3 per game), field goal percent (60 percent) and blocks (2.43).

The Magic began the night with a record of 45-26, only five fewer victories than they had after 71 games last season.

Howard himself acknowledged Wednesday night that Rose is indeed the favorite to win the award, having led the Bulls into first place in the Eastern Conference. Rose is averaging 24.9 points (seventh in the NBA) and 7.8 a.ssists (10th) for a team that has had success despite missing Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah for long stretches of the season. Also, Rose has become a much better 3-point shooter, making 112 shots from long range this season after making just 32 total over his first two NBA seasons.

"Look, and I've said this before, to me, with his rebounding his scoring and his defense, I don't think there's anybody that impacts as many possessions in a game as Dwight does," Van Gundy said. "I think Derrick Rose has been great. I'll have no problem at all if Derrick Rose wins the MVP. They've got the best record in the East, he's been clearly their leader. You can make a great case for him.

"I think it's a hard choice to make, he's been great. But, I still don't think anyone impacts as many possessions a game as Dwight does.

Magic a.ssistant coach Patrick Ewing seconded Van Gundy's opinion: "Everyone's talking about Derrick Rose. Not to take anything away from him; he's having a fantastic year, too. But they need to start putting Dwight Howard's name in the mix. Without him, who knows where we would be?"

Stan is right...

I been sayin this, the media has been pushin for rose since december.

i think the media just refuse to favor lebron now he plays with wade.

Rose is doin his thing and so is dwight. But the media is sayin rose, rose, rose without even thinking.

f**k David Stern

but Rose is MVP though. Boozer missed some time in the beginning of the season and they've been holding their own.

Then Noah went down at some point in December and still managed to hold up. They dealt with injuries to key players and still maintained a top 3 seed in the East and swept Miami, beaten the Lakers, beaten ATL I guess

Don't know if they've beaten the Celtics though. But Rose does deserve MVP and Thibodeau for COTY.

Have people not been watching Rozay play this year?? It's not even a question in my mind that he is MVP, especially with the games Noah and Boozer have missed.

Not saying Rose is not playing great this season but take Dwight Howard off the Magic and they might be top 5 worst team in the NBA.

people fail to realize how powerful the media is. They literally brainwash the casual basketball fan. The media would go one for months about how dwight is the mvp and I guarantee you people on boxden would be saying the same dwight shoud be mvp. The media wants rose to win mvp so they are brainwashing the casual basketball in to believing this...Most of boxden are casual basketball fans


A perfect example is kevin durant. One one point the media had the casual basketball fans thinking durant was a top 2 player in the nba and people were even saying hes better than lebron, well only casual basketball fans. once the media stopped talking about durant these same people all of sudden stopped with the stupidity. A casual basketball fan is like a nice girl. You can tell them anything over and over and they will start to believe it

Boozer and Noah has been injured for 50+ games COMBINED...And Rose had to play about 6-7 games without Boozer and Noah in the lineup...This was the lineup without both of them...

Rose
Bogans
Deng
Gibson
Thomas

Now take Rose out of that lineup...Who's gonna be the playmaker of that team? Who's gonna get others involved in scoring? Who's gonna cause the defenders to collapse, giving up all kinds of open opportunities for everyone else? This even applies to if Boozer and Noah was healthy all season...

And Orlando never had to deal with any major injuries throughout the whole season...Even if someone on Orlando was injured, they didn't have injuries that kept them out for a significant amount of time like Boozer and Noah...

Can't no one tell me, or any other Bulls fan about who we have when we've had to deal with injuries all season...Or tell us that we don't know what we are talking about, when we guys don't watch Bulls games..

Take Rose off the Bulls along with Noah and Boozer being injured this season, the Bulls will be much worse than Orlando without Howard...And that's a fact...
