This MVP award will be the biggest no-brainer in a long time. Cling to hope while you can because Dirk is leaving no doubt in the minds of voters as to who the MVP is this season.
The Mavs are on pace to win 71 games right now. 71 WINS!
That would be good for 2nd in NBA history...second only to Micheal Jordan's greatest accomplishment in the regular season. In fact, Dallas is building a season on a stack of broken NBA records. Personally, I'm not expecting Dallas to win 71. Im expecting between 67-69 wins. A record of that significance (good for top 10 in NBA history...better than the showtime Lakers) will pretty much guarantee an MVP for Nowitzki. Even the doubters cant frown on Dirk if he places himself next to Jordan among the all-time greats.
