ESPN.com held a roundtable poll of 18 ESPN analysts & writers, who submitted their respective MVP ballots. To no one's surprise, LeBron James ran away with the award and Dwight Howard finished 4th (which I think is the correct placement for Superman). Surprisingly, Kobe Bryant finished 3rd and Chris Paul finished 5th, despite the fact nearly every metric out there rates CP3 > Kobe. Yes, numbers are a piece in gauging a player's value, but it's worth pointing out. Take a look.
