Percy Allen of the Seattle Times has a great idea for settling the MVP debate: locking the candidates in a room and having them vote on it:
Chauncey Billups: Hold up. This should really be a no-brainer. I'm doing the same thing Nash did last year and he got the trophy.
Wade: Yeah, and we all know how that turned out. My boy Diesel got robbed.
Nash: I didn't rob anybody. Besides, have you seen my squad? Joe Johnson and Quentin Richardson, gone. No Amare [Stoudemire]. Thank goodness for Shawn [Marion].
Bryant: Don't talk to me about carrying a team.
Wade: Hey, I'm lugging a 7-1, 325 dude on my back.
Great stuff. Read the whole column to see how Allen has the players voting (hint: I think you'll be happy).
