A few comments in the media that Bogut is the favourite for MVP.

The talk of Bogut as MVP has increased of late. Mainly around how he has brought the big man back into the NBL. He has had an influence on the game of the other centres with Hodgson seemingly lifting a gear, Long, McKay to name a few others.

The MVP in the AFL has traditionally gone to a midfielder who gets a lot of ball action and usually features in the scoring. In the NBL, the MVP is typically a high scoring import with Chris Anstey the last Aussie centre to win it in 2007/08.

The last 10 winners have been: Penney, Homocide Williams, Ervin, Lisch, Jackson, Clarke, Conklin, Lisch, Randle, Cotton.

There's plenty of money going to Cotton to go back to back. While Bogut has influenced the key play, there has been numerous games where Cotton has lit up and single handedly brought Perth into the game and won it.

My money is a back to back MVP.

The difference relative to other sports and even NBL history is that the coaches and captains decide it though. That's the wildcard.

Ware is the real MVP but Bogut seems to have the hype. Maybe the NBL just don't want him throwing his all star 5 trophy in the river and going to the USA next season so they'll give it to him to prevent a tantrum.

There is an argument for Bogut as MVP, has a player/coach ever won an MVP though?

Cotton the winner but think it will go to Bogut as he is he face of the NBL and it would be a kick in the ass for him if he didn't win.

Although with players voting, it may well be the respect factor gets Bogut over the line. Guys like Goulding have spent a lot of time watching Bogut in the NBA

Bogurt did block shots but once he was drawn further out could not defend if his life depended on it.
Bad choice.
If he gets MVP it will only be because he was probably told it was part of his sign on fee.
Others more deserving.

And it shouldn't be. It should be ware or cotton. But I think it will def be Bogut.

Tbh he has been good, but for me is 3rd in line for the title, but will win it because of the hype of SYD making playoffs, not for what he has done on court

Perth only has Cotton who can get into 20pt region.

@J his name is "Carey" not Corey, and didn't like being teased, being called Carrie. Was an odd reveal. Seemed like he thought Bogut would reveal that after saying his stunt of not accepting the award was a bad look. So got in first incase Bogut wins MVP

@NAME I agree and so do plenty of others. But Liam santa basically admitted he voted for Bogut and in reflection would change his vote.

The voting system, although an improvement... Is still seriously flawed.

Bogut will win the MVP

Kay's first half of the season was sublime; Compared to Long who was inconsistent with foul trouble. Didn't help that NZ only own 12 games which would sway the voters minds a bit.

Long did storm home hard the last 8 or so weeks

Can't be mad with the Kay first team selection. His standard stats were similar to those of Long and probably a lot better in advanced stats. Not to mention team success.

18 votes per club

3-2-1 6 votes for each of Captain, Head Coach and Assistant coach.

How is ALL nbl 1st team voted? Santamaria just told Casper it was voted by peers, but what's the voting process there? Just every player submitting their 1st 5?

Ware had a shocking opening 2 rounds. Also the last 3 games were pretty damn poor. Many nights, Melbourne's best player was Kennedy, Boone or McCarron. Even Goulding and Barlow were huge in some games. Too much depth at Melbourne to just single out Casper

There were plenty more signs than just that zodiac.

I think the new system is "ok" but still has major flaws. It's maybe better than the previous system. It worked out great for the nbl tonight. But there are gonna be alot of bemused fans after tonight.

Hopefully it's fixed to make voting happen AFTER the season. Because that was one of the major flaws

Casper was easily United's most influential player this season. By a decent margin. CG had some good games and Kennedy is perhaps a sleeper for the playoffs, since his finish to the season has been brilliant, but looking at the season as a whole it was Casper by a mile

Further evidence tonight- that most of us would agree with- Kay and Randle getting in 1st and 2nd team. So Bogut and Cotton had better 2nd bananas than Casper

Can't argue with Bogut as MVP tho. He is elite at rim protection, rebounding and passing. That's a rare combination at any level of basketball.
