So I was just thinking on it earlier today and I wanted to see what you guys think. Pau has consistently been our best big man on the floor and has actually been the best player on the floor for a couple games, although he was a little timid against OKC and it infuriated me. Kobe has struggled mightily through one series before exacting nuclear fusion to kickstart his jumper at the end of it. Since then, he's been dominating everyone against him and proving again that he is the premier shooting guard in the league, the head honcho on the court, and that he is the best player right now in the game of basketball. (For all those who would like to argue this point. We can have at it on the all-Lebron post made on the main page. This is not about that argument and besides this is solely my opinion.)
So who is the MVP of the postseason thus far. My vote for the first round is Pau, for the second round is Kobe, and right now I'm having trouble deciphering whose having the bigger impact. This third round has Kobe and Pau feeding off of each other so well that you can't even really give it to one or the other without serious thought. I want to say Kobe with his 40 pts, followed by 20 and 13 has greater impacted the offense, but Pau anchors our defense on Stoudamire while also being intricate in the movement of the offense. So I've just created my first poll post.
