Dwight Howard went off again, must be on an MVP ballots

Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

CHARLOTTE, NC - APRIL 24: Center Dwight Howard #12 argues with a referee and receives a technical foul during the game between the Charlotte Bobcats and the Orlando Magic in Game Three of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2010 NBA Playoffs at Time Warner Cable Arena on April 24, 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia.

I don’t labor under the illusion that Dwight Howard is going to win the MVP. Derrick Rose seems to be pulling ahead in that race and if the Bulls keep winning (especially if they get the top spot in the East) he will be a deserving recipient.

But Dwight Howard needs to be on the ballot.

Put him second, put him third. I’m not going to argue over how one should define MVP with you. But if Dwight Howard is not on your list, then I wonder how much hoop you watch and how much you understand what you do see. Because he is flat out ballin’.

He went off again last night for 31 and 22 (granted, against a Bucks team without Andrew Bogut). The man has it going on.
