MVP could be won be by a few guys still I'm sure....Paul, Garnett, Kobe is probably going to win finally and is deserving of course.
I'm surprised that Dwight Howard is Stein's second team behind Duncan though. I would have him as first team if it were my pick.
Also, big surprise to have Ginobili as second teamer coming off the bench........he is plenty good enough to earn the honor, just surprised since he technically is a bench player this season.

I agree with most of his predictions and award ballots, but I think Chris Paul should win the MVP if the Hornets can stay on top the Western Conference with a couple of games left. For toughest omissions, I would put Caron Butler in there as well, as he has flourished during the absence of Arenas and can be a walking triple double.
